Nothing is as comforting, familiar and welcoming as Vanilla essence. In a tea its fabulous.
Playing complement to a black tea is no simple task. Of the most popular flavorings, vanilla is perhaps the only truly viable candidate to be considered as a baseline pairing with a straight black tea. Why? Let's consider the character of a black tisanal. Straightness and clarity are two prized characteristics of a classic black tea. A plain, unassuming nature is fundamental to this “grown up” brew. Sound familiar? Vanilla has long had a similar reputation among flavorings. Consider the collection found in a vanilla-centric aroma. It's simple, clean, vaguely sweet, ready to be blended.
Possessive of itself and avoiding any analysis: vanilla is, upon deeper inspection, a well-positioned mate for black tea. Vanilla Black proves this as it gains ground through its quiet, uncomplicated collection. With health qualities and upper-class details taking the sideline; flavor is key here: Vanilla Black as a somewhat sweet experience. In terms of direct description: the “beany” quality of vanilla flavoring is present here, lying somewhat delicately over the black leaf base. Both notes provide a milder sensation, and each pulls its modest weight in joining up to create the final product: Vanilla black tea.
Enjoy it hot, cold, morning, noon, or night.

Beautiful black tea with delicate vanilla through out. Great robust taste. Quick delivery, beautiful packaging, would make wonderful gift.
Thank you for your observations. We're always delighted when a customer is happy!
I like chai, but sometimes the spices are ‘out of balance,’ at least to me. Here the spices meld nicely with the vanilla. Nothing dominates, just a pleasantly warm & flavourful chai. It also stands up fine to milk and sugar, which I like in chai. Recommended!
What profound, spot on observations you have about the Vanilla Chai. Thank you for getting in touch!
