Tea Blend Spotlight: Orchid Vanilla

5 minutes

A well-prepared cup of black tea is known for its ability to calm the mind and center the soul, soothing us into a place of quiet balance. When paired with soft, familiar flavors like vanilla and coconut, the effect is even greater, blanketing us in a feeling of pure contentment.


Tea Forté's Orchid Vanilla blend is a perfect example of tea's restorative powers, elevating fine black tea leaves with subtle vanilla, reassuring coconut, and just the faintest taste of honey. This delicate pairing is organic, Kosher Certified, and curated with the classic tea enthusiast in mind.

Orchid Vanilla is available in Loose Tea Canisters containing 35-50 servings of loose tea, as well as pyramid tea infusers.


This medium-bodied blend's subtle sweetness comes from vanilla beans grown in Madagascar, an island off the coast of eastern Africa roundly known for producing the world's most sought-after vanilla. As a result of its thoughtful composition, Orchid Vanilla earned a prestigious award at the 2012 North American Tea Championships and has been a beloved part of Tea Forté's extensive array of fine tea blends ever since.

Orchid Vanilla ingredients: Coconut, vanilla bean and black tea



Before it's ready for consumption, black tea undergoes four stages of production: withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying/firing. This process results in slightly higher caffeine levels than green, white, and oolong teas, which are treated with less rigor and impart less energy in return.

Working with small tea gardens dedicated to sustainable practices, Tea Forté selects large, well-shaped leaves from the camellia sinensis plant and processes them by hand, which requires steady patience and deep reverence for the centuries-long tradition of crafting the most exquisite tea blends.
