Tahitian Vanilla: an exceptional product

When we think of vanilla, we immediately think of the delicious Bourbon vanilla produced on Reunion Island or in Madagascar in particular. And yet, less known, but just as fabulous in taste, Tahitian vanilla has nothing to envy its competitor. In Tahiti, no Bourbon vanilla is produced. Indeed, only the countries of the Indian Ocean can obtain this appellation. But no matter what, you will see when you taste this exceptional product, the name does not make the quality. I have travelled a lot around the world in search of the best vanilla. Tahiti, this archipelago full of magic with its breathtaking landscapes and unique beaches, conceals a treasure: its vanilla. Go to the markets of Papeete to admire teasing stalls with magnificent vanilla beans. Their appearance, their smell, everything makes you want to. On the island of Taha'a, the vanilla market is held every month. A real paradise for vanilla lovers. The island offers the best climatic conditions for this product to develop. Vanilla tahitensis and Vanilla planifolia are produced here. The pods of the former ripen on a creeper. The pods of the latter are picked before maturity and are steamed. Two methods, but always an outstanding quality. Tahitian vanilla is one of the most expensive in the world. Why is that? Quite simply because it is produced in smaller quantities than the Bourbon vanilla of Madagascar. Rarity makes the price, it is known. Today, great chefs such as Guy Savoy themselves confess to being bewitched by the power and refinement of this very high quality product.

Tahitian vanilla cultivation: what you need to know

As we mentioned, in Tahiti, two cultures are practiced. While Vanilla tahitensis is picked ripe with its beautiful brown pods, Vanilla planifolia follows a different process. It requires very meticulous work to exploit its full potential. During production, each pod is massaged to blend its aromatic components. From the cultivation of the orchid that gives this marvellous vanilla to the harvesting, through the care given to the beans, everything is done to offer you a great vintage.

The preservation of your Tahitian vanilla bean

Madagascar vanilla, Reunionese vanilla or Tahitian vanilla, whatever product you have bought, you must take the greatest care of it. A good preservation is the sine qua non condition for your vanilla to develop all its aromas and enhance your dishes in the best way. If there are various ways of preserving vanilla, we suggest you place it in an airtight jar with an alcohol base. It will keep all its properties.

Why is tasting Tahitian vanilla so important?

Because it is excellent! The quality of Tahitian vanilla is no longer to be proven. But that's not all. This rare product is also a natural antidepressant, a low-calorie product that allows you to sweeten while keeping your figure and a partner in your digestion. A good and healthy product, why do without it?

Tahitian vanilla in your kitchen

You are used to powdered vanilla, vanilla sugar, vanilla flavors, you will be surprised by Tahitian vanilla. Its fleshy beans, its aromatic palette, everything is made so that you can't do without its small black beans.
You can split its beans and infuse this fragrant vanilla to flavour your dishes.

Here are some ideas for using Tahiti vanilla:

- homemade vanilla ice cream
- arranged rum
- dessert
- coconut flank

vanille tres seche

Comment from David Vanille the 14/09/2021
Monsieur, Quand une vanille fait 40% d'humidité comme la vanille de Tahiti, elle n'est pas sèche mais très charnue. Quand une vanille fait 35% d'humidité comme la Veracruz, elle n'est pas sèche mais charnue. Quand une vanille fait 28% d'humidité comme la Papouasie Affinée, elle est mi-sèche comme indiqué sur l'ancienne fiche. Quand sur une fiche descriptive, on explique que la vanille est sèche (Vanille Bourbon Rouge), nous sommes d'accord, elle est sèche. Le taux d'humidité n'étant pas représentatif de la qualité d'une vanille mais simplement d'un teneur en eau. Voir ma fiche l'expliquant sur la Vanille Bourbon Rouge. Prendre le temps de lire les fiches est essentiel. Cordialement, David Vanille
