If you’re in the mood for a little something sweet, a vanilla tea is sure to do the trick! We carry vanilla-flavored teas in black, green, and herbal varieties, for whenever you want to brew up a cup of a little something special.
What is vanilla tea?
Vanilla is a common tea flavoring that imparts a slightly sweet, dessert-like flavor to teas. Vanilla teas are tasty on their own, but also often go well with milk and sweetener. While black tea is a typical base for a vanilla tea, vanilla flavoring can be added to any type of tea, including black, green, herbal, and other types of tea.
Our vanilla teas
We carry three different vanilla-flavored teas, including two caffeinated and one caffeine-free option.
Our Vanilla Velvet black tea makes for a decadent cup of vanilla flavored tea. This tea balances rich, creamy vanilla with robust black tea and just a hint of jasmine blossoms for a slightly sweet, slightly floral tea that goes great with milk and honey. The vanilla adds depth of flavor, while the jasmine contributes smooth, floral notes. Vanilla Velvet is refreshing hot or iced, and contains a moderate amount of caffeine (about half that of a cup of coffee).
Our Vanilla Bean green tea is a simple blend of two ingredients: organic green tea and high-quality vanilla flavor. It has a rich, complex taste when brewed, with hints of vanilla cheesecake and creme brulee. Vanilla Bean can be enjoyed on its own, with no need for milk or sweetener, and makes a great afternoon pick-me-up when you’re craving something sweet. This is an aromatic and flavorful tea with a low amount of caffeine.
Love vanilla, but trying to avoid caffeine? Our Vanilla Rooibos herbal tea is an excellent choice. This vanilla-flavored herbal tea is smooth, rich, and super warming, without any added calories or caffeine. Rooibos is also extremely high in antioxidants, which makes this a healthy before-bed choice when you’re winding down for the evening. This tea also goes great with a splash of milk! Superior quality vanilla rooibos is the secret to the smooth, rich, creamy taste of this popular flavor of rooibos.
How to brew vanilla tea
How to prepare vanilla tea depends on what type of tea makes up the base of the tea. Black teas, green teas, and herbal teas all have different preparation instructions, including different water temperatures and steep times. We recommend using a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter to prepare your tea. These preparation methods allow tea leaves to fully expand as the tea steeps, resulting in a richer, more flavorful cup.
