Vanilla planifolia, is indigenous to Mexico, where it is pollinated by tiny humming birds and a bee called Melipona. Vanilla is actually in the orchid family and is the only orchid to produce an edible fruit. Hand pollination has allowed the vanilla plant to be grown in other places in the world such as Madagascar and Tahiti.
We're so lucky to be able to have vanilla so readily available to us! This bean produces a heady aroma and flavor that infuses your taste buds with exotic wonder. This black tea blend has a vanilla flavor similar to vanilla extract. The deep amber cup is delectable, and is perfect as is, or with just a touch of sweetener. Try blending a little in with other teas to create marvelous new taste sensations.
