Do you know where I can get some of this tea?

…I tried to download a picture for this tea and while I was on google I’ve noticed that some tea sellers offer it on there page.
But besides that…you only get in on the island of Mauritius. A friend of mine works there and promised me to send a bag.
The company is not eager to expand or do export business to overseas as the plantation is quite small.

I found a place in France but was hoping for a place in the states. Have you herd great things?

I went on a trip to Maritius 2years ago and visited the plantations…made a tour through there production line where a employee explained all the different steps of processing the leafs to me…we did a tea tasting afterwards. Mmmmh…very nice tea. The vanilla flavor is very strong and almost overwhelming…well, of course it is! Mauritius also has its hands in the vanilla business. Anyways, the population of the island mostly drinks it with milk. Some may add a bit of cardamom. Therefore, as the tea is designed for milk drinkers, it may come across a bit rough if one drinks it without. It is the only vanilla scented tea that I’ve ever tried. Means I can’t compare with other V.-teas that are out there.
