Hi Cinnamon77, welcome to our TeaFellowship. I hope you stick around and share many cups with us on TeaDay

I am not drinking flavored teas these days. I am sure someone will chime in. Just wanted to say HI!

Welcome!
Adagio's Black flavored sampler
is probably a good place to start.

Welcome to the forum!

You are starting your journey here much as I did back in May of this year... time will tell where the journey takes you.

I came to Adagio and Teachat mostly drinking flavored blacks. In the course of 3 months, I am now drinking almost exclusively oolongs... mostly UNflavored, and oddly enough for me, mostly also unsweetened. I still love my blacks and flavored blacks, and have acquired an appreciation for really good greens thanks to Chip's badgering. But I adore my oolongs, favoring the greener ones the most. I've also started paying much more attention to time and temperature, bought 3 yixing pots, and have been doing some semi gong-fu brewing... all new to me since coming here.

Good luck on your exploration... if you enjoy tea, you will love Teachat.

If flavored teas is your thing you can also get high grade flavoured teas.
Jasmine Pearls is a personal favorite of mine, and as the name suggests is jasmine flavored tea.

My first love affair with tea consisted of 3 bags of lemon flavoured black tea combined with 3 teaspoons of sugar. That stuff was like crack. I would probably still drink it occasionally if sugar wasn't bad for you.

Badger? Tea? You must be thinking of this:

As someone who loves both badgers and tea, I would readily drink any tea recommended to me by a badger!

Welcome! I would recommend Jasmine Pearls, something with osmanthus, flavoured rooibos. But I'm not that into flavoured. There's a special part of the forum with flavoured stuff, try reading through posts there. With Signature Blends and stuff there seem to be a lot to choose from!
