Vanilla Tea Vanilla Tea - We start with a full bodied China based Black tea with full sized leaf and add the smooth, rich flavor and aroma of Vanilla. I bet you didn't know that vanilla is a tropical American orchidcultivated for its long, narrow, aromatic seedpods. Itis from these seedpods that the flavoring extract vanilla comes from. A great introduction to the novice tea drinker. Think of it as the Latte of teas! Price per 1/2 lb.
