Vanilla and Cinnamon comprise what may be one of our most exotic and ancient blends. The story of Cinnamon began in ancient Egypt where it was prized for its sweet aroma. The Egyptians used it to purify the tombs of the Pharaohs and believed it to be a valuable commodity in the spirit world. Vanilla too has an ancient history. Native to Central America, the spice is believed to have been first used by the Aztecs as an additive to chocolate as far back as 200 b.c. If one were to add up the combined histories of both spices, (given that Tutankhamen was born at about 1350 B.C.), the ingredients in this tea blend would have a combined age of 5558 years! Celebrate this venerable history by brewing a pot of this magnificent tea. Taste how the sweet scent of cinnamon pairs beautifully with the vanilla.
