Fun to know: Vanilla is one powerful commodity. The Spanish added it to drinking chocolate, but it would be an American who would use vanilla to create a beverage that would take the world by storm. What beverage? You may have heard of it…Coca Cola? The original 1885 recipe relied on Vanilla for an exotic touch and we all know what happened from there, Coca Cola became a global phenomenon the likes of which the world had never seen.
Well, instead of adding vanilla to coke, we play it with teas, which is obviously a much healthier choice. We’ve flavoured premium, high grown Hyson gunpowder from Sri Lanka with pure vanilla extract to create a cup that is light liquoring and intensely refreshing with astringent notes of orchid and honey. A wonderful cup – 3 cups is reported to have the vitamin C content of an orange!
