The tahitensis that they are selling are not from Tahiti (which gives them a certain plumpness and flavour profile that DEFINES them as Tahitian vanilla beans). The ones offered by Amadeus are from the other country sources (namely Papa New Guinea) so they produce a longer yet less plump and less flavour dense profile or in others' opinions a more wine-y oriented flavour profile whereas the real Tahitian beans grown in Tahiti are massive in size and internal seed content with a more chocolate/caramel flavour profile. (I have worked with those type of beans before) In my opinion the quality of tahitensis bean is not as high as Tahitian beans however, like I said, I LOVE to experiment so I am more than willing to give their beans a shot to see what comes of it! Besides, most of these companies tend to get their beans from the same places so I would not be surprised to learn they are sold at the same warehouse auctions worldwide......lol
I have been buying beans from all over the world for a few decades now and have also travelled to quite a few of the regions where they are grown to get an idea of the farming/picking practices. It is the most incredible and delicious journey as wherever there were vanilla beans there seemed to be coffee, sugar or cocoa farms to visit as well....hehe. This by no means makes anyone an expert, I just love the incredible opportunity these type of food commodities present when I travel to see where they come from.
I am looking forward to hearing how yours turns out as well!! Thank you once again for the heads up
