Rich and creamy, this organic black tea blend is flavored with real vanilla. Made using only high quality vanilla extract and Grade A vanilla beans, this tea captures the true essence of an iconic flavor.
Madagascar Vanilla is really versatile. It goes equally well with breakfast as it does with an afternoon tea service. It has a slightly malty note that pairs well with the gentle sweetness of the vanilla.
Our Madagascar Vanilla is created using a black tea base. Black tea is what most Westerners associate with traditional tea. It comes from the same tea plant (Camellia Sinensis) as all other forms of tea; however, unlike any other type, it is fully oxidized. Shortly after harvest the tea leaves are rolled to release the enzymes present in the leaf that trigger oxidation. After oxidation is complete, the leaves are dried and then sorted. Black teas produce a darker liquor than white, green or oolong teas and a bolder, more assertive flavor.
Drink Madagascar Vanilla with French toast and bacon over breakfast or pair it with the dessert course during afternoon tea. It works particularly well with lemon custard.
We recommend steeping Madagascar Vanilla for 3 minutes at 195°.
