I'm amazed at how superior your vanilla is!

I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Island Coconut Quencher



  • 4 slightly rounded tablespoons green tea
  • 1 quart fresh, filtered water
  • 1 quart filtered water, cool
  • 11/2 teaspoons Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract
  • full fat coconut milk
  • Vanilla Sugar to taste


  1. Heat one quart of water to 180 degrees in large saucepan. Add loose tea to boiling water and allow to steep 3-minutes. Strain tea into cool water. Add vanilla extract and sweeten slightly with sweetener of choice if desired.
  2. In tall glasses filled with ice, pour green tea over the ice and fill to about 3/4 full. Top with coconut milk. Garnish with a straw, and sip your way to your favorite island paradise!


* Use either Rain’s Choice Vanilla Extract or Rain’s Choice Vanilla Sugar. You don’t need to use the extract if you use the sugar.

Green tea is full of healthy antioxidants and a good source of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful antioxidant that is effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels and inhibiting the formation of abnormal blood clots, a leading cause of strokes and heart attacks.
