Spiced tea flavor notes

Recommendations Infused in a warmed milk or delicate desserts.

Olivier Rœllinger's words

Our New Caledonia vanilla beans are a natural treasure with smoothfloral, tea, and dried fruit flavor notes which have an astonishing way of lingering on the palate.

The beans' unique flavor and scent are marvelous when infused in milk.

Story

This rare, unique, Vanilla planifolia grows nearly 20 cm (7 inches) long. The patient curing technique carried out by a passionate grower in New Caledonia naturally saturates the beans with vanillin, which then forms frost-like crystals on the surface.
The beans continue to cure and frost over with spiky crystals in our "Cave à Vanilles" (Vanilla Cellar) at the Maison du Voyageur.
