According to the International Ice Cream Association, Vanilla is by far the most popular flavor, getting a full 23% of all ice cream consumption. Inspired by this love, Adagio created Vanilla Black Tea, combining the rich, warm, sugar aroma of vanilla with bright Ceylon black tea. Soothing, sweet and very 'beany' vanilla fragrance, like warm sugar cookies made with fresh vanilla beans.

Ingredients & Lore
blended with black tea & natural vanilla flavor
From the Aztecs to the Indonesians, vanilla was first added to chocolate to soften its bitterness. In 1841, a 12-year-old Reunion slave, Edmond Albius, figured out how to hand pollinate vanilla blooms that led to vanilla plantations in India, Tahiti and Indonesia although 75% of the world’s vanilla today still comes from Madagascar and Reunion. Hugh Morgan created the first vanilla flavored sweets, and Queen Victoria’s love for them made vanilla candy a huge seller. Nearly one-third of all ice cream sales (29%) in the U.S. is vanilla and it remains the second priciest spice in the world (after saffron).
