About Orchid Vanilla Tea

Tea Type : Black Tea

Tea Forté Orchid Vanilla black tea is harvested from the foothills along the border of Laos and Myanmar (Burma) in the Yunnan Province which is recognized for its ideal tea growing conditions: red, fertile soil, a misty and humid climate and a constant average year round temperature. It is reputed as offering among the best of China’s black teas, known for its delicate leaves and number of buds. This smooth, medium bodied, black tea is married with sweet vanilla from Madagascar, an island off the east coast of Africa known for the producing the highest quality vanilla in the world. The coconut pieces add a touch of tropical flavor that finish off this sought after black tea.

The only spice more expensive by weight than vanilla is saffron. Vanilla is made from the seed pods of the vanilla orchid, which is only grown in Madagascar and in parts of Indonesia.

Ingredients and certifications may differ slightly between our pyramid infusers and loose tea canisters for this blend, see package for details.

Steeping instructions

1. Heat water to 208˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.

    I have been enjoying tea for many years. I stumbled across this tea about 10-15 years ago and I have been in love with it ever since. It never gets old to me. I may try other teas, but I always come home to my beloved Vanilla Orchid. Please do not ever stop selling this tea or change it in anyway. This tea with a little honey is my happy place. If it was physically possible to marry a beverage...this would be the one! LOL :) Happily in love with Vanilla Orchid for 15-ish years.

    Ingredients changed along with canister design--totally different flavor

    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.

    The best tea!

    This tea is unbelievably good! Just sweet enough and rich and creamy. Served with just a drop of cream, it makes a wonderful dessert. I split my box with my tea-drinking daughter and she loves it. For me, this is a special occasion tea; it's that good. Will definitely order more and I highly recommend it.

    Wife is nuts over this flavor

    Title says it all. All their pyramid teas are delicious, but this one is my wife’s absolute favorite. Tea is fresh, ordering was quick and shipping was as fast as ever. Planning on ordering again.
