Black Tea

Vanilla Black

Sweet, Fragrant , Rich Ruhuna, Sri Lanka
Our Vanilla Black is a harmonious flavour pairing of smooth, rich Ceylon and high quality, sumptuously sweet vanilla. Soft and lightly fragrant, enjoy it as a comforting afternoon or evening treat.

Vanilla Black

To create this sweet and fragrant scented tea, we use low-grown Ceylon black tea from Ruhuna in the south of Sri Lanka, where the tropical climate and fertile soils give the tea plants a robust character. The tea is then scented with pure vanilla essence, naturally sweetening the bolder black tea base with a soft and creamy fragrance. This creates a rich, comforting and indulgent infusion, with additional hints of dark toffee and a full-bodied texture.

    Good quality vanilla

    I once tried a beautiful vanilla tea and have searched in vain to find it. There are endless vanilla teas that are weak and taste of vanilla essence. This one tastes as if vanilla pods had been immersed in a strong black tea and have infused it with their flavour fully.Look no further if you are a vanilla tea lover as I.
