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.

    Wonderful aroma

    This tea is an excellent dessert tea, and goes well with a rich chocolate cake! It is also is comforting on a chilly night. The flavor of the vanilla is prominent, but not overwhelming. I love this tea!

    Different than i remembered

    I tried this on vacation many years ago both iced and hot. This batch just tastes a bit more different. The vanilla and coconut are a bit more flavorful than i remember? It could just be a changed palate. Either way, i would probably give it a 4.5 but that wasn't an option. For some it may taste a bit sweet without being sweet if that makes sense. Personally, i love this combination and like it hot with milk or iced without anything in it. Recommend if you like flavored but unsweetened cozy black teas.

    Good, but strong coconut

    This is great but definitely has a strong coconut flavor/smell to it.

    Surprisingly good

    I usually hate coconut and I was surprised that I liked this tea. The coconut with the vanilla is actually pretty nice—it’s not overpowering at all.

    Love this tea!

    This is my go-to morning tea. It's great as is, no sweetener or cream needed. Smooth. Subtle. Just a lovely cup of tea.
