A sweet blend of spiced chai tea with a soft, creamy vanilla base.

About 80% of the world's vanilla is grown by small holding farmers in the hilly forests of Madagascar. Vanilla is an orchid vine that grows up tree trunks. After planting it takes three years to fruit. Although it is a perennial plant, it is a laborious and time consuming crop because each flower must be pollinated by hand before the green fingerling pods will grow.   America is the biggest importer of vanilla beans from Madagascar. Once in America, those beans are further processed into vanilla extract. As a spice, it is the second most expensive (only behind saffron) and is the world’s most popular flavor.
