This was my absolute favorite tea ever! But like my fellow reviewers, I have to say the tea is completely different now. It’s very bitter and smells differently. I emailed customer service and was told that indeed the recipe changed. Customer service is excellent, by the way. I’m sad to say “R.I.P, Orchid vanilla tea.” On a journey to find a replacement now..... :(
This was my absolute favourite tea. Have it every morning and crave it when I don't. I placed my order and received a different tasting, smelling and looking tea this time. Very disappointed. What's up! Yes the packaging has changed which i like but the tea does not look, smell or taste the same. Please change it back! Wish I could post a picture here as I could show the visual difference at least between the old and new.
This tea had been my favorite for years. When my local supermarkets stopped carrying it, I thought it had been discontinued. I was thankful to see it was still available on the website, so I ordered multiple tins. When I received the tea, it arrived in a newly designed canister, and the tea leaves neither looked nor smelled the same as the previous version. The blend is much finer and has hardly any vanilla pieces in comparison to the ground coconut. The scent and taste are totally different, and I am so disappointed that I now have multiple cans of the "new" orchid vanilla, which really tastes more of coconut than vanilla. If you compare ingredients on the new and old canisters, you'll see that vanilla pieces moved to the last ingredient in the new blend. Any way I can purchase "old" cans of this tea? Please change back to the old blend.
I really wanted to love this tea. I thought it sounded like an excellent cup to snuggle up with in winter. It is rich. And who doesn’t love vanilla? But, for me, the flavor is cloying. Even the smell doesn’t make me want to drink it. I don’t think that’s the vanilla, but whatever it is they’ve described as “orchid”. I’m not sure. But I won’t be buying it again. It’s not bad. I just don’t love it.
