From Canton Tea Co

A classic tea blend made from black tea scented with Vanilla. Many versions of this blend you will find on the market are artificially flavoured with synthetic Vanilla and use a low-grade base tea. Ours is a mixture of two high-grade Chinese black teas and diced organic Indian Vanilla pod which make a robust infusion with a delicate Vanilla sweetness.

Rich, smooth Yunnan Black (Dian Hong) tea is blended with caramel sweet Bai Lin Gong Fu black tea for a base that is soft and deep, with the scent and taste of Vanilla perfectly complementing the natural delicate sweetness. A heady aroma and the sweet lingering aftertaste make this a great afternoon tea.

I’m on a quest for beautifully flavored chocolate and vanilla teas. During the winter when my allergies are unkind to me via the desert winds of Southern California, my palate plays tricks on me, and I’ve found having a leading familiar note helps me find the flavors of my cup in the morning. I am thankful.

Canton Tea Company is turning out to be one of my preferred sources for tea – and even I’m surprised by that statement! Their blends are thoughtful and different from the ones normally found at a mid-sized purveyor of tea, and their Vanilla Black is a wonderful example of this.

This tea is named simply, so it’s a good thing I looked at the description of the tea prior to closing out my last order with them. This flavored blend is led by the organic vanilla bean. Rich and sweet vanilla….really, is there a better flavor on the planet? Vanilla’s ability to comfort is well known, as perfumers have been using it to women’s advantage for decades….it is men’s favorite fragrance. As it is mine. NOM. The base of this tea is a heady blend of Yunnan black and Assam teas. The Yunnan brings a soft plum-like cocoa flavor to this blend, while the Assam adds a sweet maltiness. It has a lovely round mouthfeel and the balance with the vanilla note is glorious. For aesthetic value, Canton Tea Co uses cornflowers for a touch of color….not necessary but a nice touch.

This blend used to be specifically Yunnans (a black and a Bai Lin) and I thought I might be disappointed with the newer blend, but I am learning I shouldn’t doubt the master blender at Canton Tea Co. He knows his stuff and continuously provides satisfying blends of wonderful teas. Vanilla Black is another example. Well done, Canton Tea Co. I’ll be cursing your shipping fees on a regular basis!

Nice black tea flavor (Yunan Gold) with just a hint of vanilla. Not artificial tasting at all.
