Chinese Emperor’s Breakfast Black loose leaf tea blended with Ugandan vanilla powder from the Ndali Estate in Fort Portal.

This hand rolled black tea made from young and tender spring leaves and golden buds already has remarkable notes or rich toffee, butterscotch, and vanilla. The addition of the vanilla powder blended through the tea elevates it to extraordinary new heights of flavour and enjoyment.

Best Vanilla Tea Ever

I have tried loose black vanilla tea from a dozen other places. Nothing compares. It has strength yet is smooth and lasts through several infusions without losing character. I learned about Rare Tea when I read Henrietta's lovely book which I also recommend.

A brilliant blend

While I don't normally like "intruders" in my tea, the Ugandan vanilla powder that is blended with this Chinese Emperor's Breakfast Tea merely draws out the vanilla fragrance already in the tea and gives it a luscious accent. There's no sense of something being added merely for effect. In any case, the fusion is complete yet the miracle of this blend is its subtlety. It has a floral aurora overall and sits very nicely on the tongue.

A joyful cup of tea!

The vanilla tea is my afternoon pleasure. Delicate enough that it needs no milk or sugar but robust enough to pick me up when the 4 o’clock dreariness sets in. I really adore this tea and plan to purchase more when I finish!

Tasting Notes

Remarkably smooth and silky in both mouth-feel and flavour. Notes of milk chocolate, toffee, butterscotch and rich vanilla.


Use 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2.5g per 150ml).


For the optimum infusion use 176°F (80°C) water.


Infuse for 1 to 2 minutes, tasting regularly. Best enjoyed without milk.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

49¢ per cup based on 0.09oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.


Ndali Estate Vanilla

Today, the word vanilla is often used to describe something as quite ordinary or common. Ordinary does not sit well with us so we sought out the very best vanilla that we could find. At the Ndali Estate they are producing artisanal batches of some of the strongest, most delicious and rarest vanilla in the world.

Emperors Breakfast

A rare China tea crafted by masters to produce an astonishingly sweet black tea. Made from very young and tender spring leaves and golden buds that have been carefully kept whole during hand rolling.
