Cultivated in a reasoned way in French Polynesia, the Tahitensis Tahiti vanilla species are harvested mature on the vines, washed and dried, before they are put in the sun for a few hours every day for at least 5 months. The pods are then massaged, calibrated and refined with great expertise. That's why Tahitensis vanilla species from Polynesia are so renowned for their exceptional aromas and unique flavors, distinguishing them from the more commonly known Vanilla planifolia variety.

 

Tahitensis Tahiti vanilla pods from Taha'a are a little shorter yet fleshy, thick, and oily with a glossy dark brown colour, with great aromatic richness from jasmine to cherry stone. Taha'a Tahitensis vanilla have their own delicate, floral fragrance, with hints of cherry, almond, and an exotic touch of sweet, ripe fruit, with more subtle aroma that is often described as being reminiscent of tropical flowers and a gentle, creamy sweetness.
