Decadent and creamy, this is the ultimate vanilla forward black tea. We blend a malty, smooth-bodied tea from Yunnan with premium vanilla extract and high quality chopped vanilla bean to create a silky, layered taste experience. Our Vanilla Bean is cured before release for a harmonized and integrated flavor.



Tasting Notes: Rich and malty with a smooth, sweet vanilla finish

Ingredients: Organic black tea, organic vanilla beans, natural vanilla flavor.

Rishi Tea Blend
Water Temperature: 212°F (boiling)
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 3-4 minutes

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Flavor wise, I like it. good blend of vanilla although I would have liked it to be a bit more. My issue with this was the black tea was not strong enough for me. I even let it steep a little bit longer then normal. If you like a weaker black tea this would be perfect for you. I'm sad, wish it was for me... :(

I've ordered the Rishi Vanilla Black tea many times over the years. It has always been a special treat. I hadn't had any for about a year when I ordered again and so I was really looking forward to it. Sadly, the pound of tea I received fell far short of my memory/expectations. I find the black tea in this batch to be very bitter, and the vanilla flavor seems like it is coming more from flavoring or extract than from the pieces of vanilla bean. The vanilla beans and tea even look different from how I remember previous batches. The Rishi teas I have enjoyed over the years have always been superior products, so I was very surprised and disappointed by this one. I'm hoping it is an anomaly.
Owner Response: Christa, Sorry this batch has let you down! Do feel free to reach our customer service team to take us up on our Quality Promise.

The hot tea version of these tea leaves is a bit odd, mixed with sweet vanilla but yet bitter black tea. I decided to try cold-brewing this tea overnight and it turned out fantastic! With no added sugar and ice and little bit of lemon, it's the best twist of original sweet tea I've ever had. Definitely would recommend.

This is our favorite tea for most occasions. Some vanilla teas have such an overpowering & artificial taste. Not this one - smooth, mild & wonderful. We are never without this tea!

I've been a tea drinker for many years. This is, bar none, the best vanilla tea I've ever had. One of the best teas period. Highly recommended.
