Tea Forté Orchid Vanilla black tea is harvested from the foothills along the border of Laos and Myanmar (Burma) in the Yunnan Province which is recognized for its ideal tea growing conditions: red, fertile soil, a misty and humid climate and a constant average year round temperature. It is reputed as offering among the best of China’s black teas, known for its delicate leaves and number of buds. This smooth, medium bodied, black tea is married with sweet vanilla from Madagascar, an island off the east coast of Africa known for the producing the highest quality vanilla in the world. The coconut pieces add a touch of tropical flavor that finish off this sought after black tea.
Nice strong vanilla flavor and scent that mellows with subsequent infusions. I don't know if they changed recipes, but my leaf does not look as pictured, and while coconut is mentioned in the flavor description, it is not mentioned as an ingredient on my can.
