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.
3. Steep for 3-5 minutes.
4. Enjoy!

For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 tsp per 8oz glass.

    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.

    Best tea I've ever had

    A friend gave me a canister of Orchid Vanilla tea for Christmas. My first thought was: "Oh no, why do people buy me tea? I only like one kind of tea". I'm really picky. But I decided to at least taste it. I'm completely hooked. I love the coconut and vanilla flavor together. The best word to describe it is smooth. There is nothing bitter about this tea. If you like vanilla and coconut, you will love this tea. I think they should change the name to Vanilla Coconut tea - the word "orchid" doesn't really describe the flavor. I have been drinking another brand of Vanilla Tea for many years. I received it via an online subscription. I have cancelled that subscription since I have discovered this fabulous tea. The difference in flavor is huge. I am totally addicted to this tea. But as I tell my adult daughter, there's worse addictions :)

    Something has changed and I don't like it!

    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.
