Sri Lanka is famous for exporting the finest quality Ceylon tea and coffee, and vanilla farming is a new crop for the island country. The rich, fertile soils and tropical climate of the southern Asian region create perfect growing conditions for high-quality vanilla. The vines are mostly grown as subsistence crops amongst the tea plantations and in the rainforests and cured using natural drying methods. The gourmet beans have a higher-than average moisture and oil content and a sweet, floral aroma with earthy, chocolate and fruity undertones. Just as delicious in meaty stews, creamy sauces and refined seafood dishes as in homemade ice cream, fine-dining desserts, cakes, cookies, health drinks, and cocktails. The delicate palate of Sri Lankan vanilla does not stand as well to high temperatures and is more for recipes that don't require intense heat.

Moisture: 35%
