Fresh sugar cookies, anyone? For this Vanilla Oolong we start with a naturally sweet oolong from Taiwan. The warm dark sugar quality of vanilla bean adds a perfect flavor and texture element to this already complex tea. So, cookies? Well, that's just one of several sweet, sugary treats that came to mind when tasting this cup. Brown sugar and honey notes, smooth mouthfeel, lingering fragrance.

Ingredients & Lore
blended with oolong tea & natural vanilla flavor
The story of vanilla begins with the Totonac Indians of Mexico, who were the first to unearth its secret. They fell to the Aztecs, who were in turn soon conquered by the Spaniards, under the leadership of Hernando Cortez. Cortez brought his precious plunder, including a few beans of vanilla, back to Spain. Vanilla beans are the fruit of an orchid which blooms for only one day each year. Because of this, and also because the flowers must be hand-pollinated, vanilla is the second most expensive spice on earth, after saffron.
