A T-tail is an empennage configuration in which the horizontal surfaces are mounted to the top of the vertical stabilizer. The resulting arrangement looks like the capital letter T when viewed from the front or back, hence the name. This differs from the traditional configuration in which the horizontal control surfaces are mounted to the fuselage at the base of the vertical stabilizer.
