When I opened my mailbox this morning, the samples from Just Organic Tea were there, and they sent quite a few to try! :) Thank you for letting me try your tea!
I glanced through the samples and this one caught my eye…I saw carob, and had to try it. A vanilla with carob?
Opening the little sample baggie, the scent was very pleasing, with carob accenting the vanilla in such a balanced, harmonious way. This doesn’t smell like your run of the mill vanilla black.
The liquor smelled sweet with hints of vanilla and caramel.
There’s no vanilla burn here—just very soft, natural flavours—nothing artificial.
I find the carob to be really interesting here, providing a base note to each sip. The mouth feel is smooth and lovely.
The cup doesn’t scream out vanilla to me, but I’m ok with that. What it does is much more interesting than just a straight up vanilla. As the cup cools, the caramel notes come to the front.
This is a really lovely cup of tea.
Thanks again, Just Organic Tea for offering up these samples to try!

Oh, tea….
you’ve taken over my life, but I’m ok with that.

I’m pretty new to the tea scene, only drinking tea bags most of my life, but my friend ifjuly really got me into it (that sounds bad…). Butiki, Harney, and Verdant seem to be my ‘go to’ places to order from, but I LOVE trying new teas and companies. The variety is partly why I love tea so much…you can’t possibly get sick of it.
Well, that, and the transporting aroma of each cup…. I love that. It’s why I love wine, and tea does it just was well.

Really want to learn about different tea vendors out there, and about tea in general… it’s all so interesting to me.
I’m really excited to be part of this community and learn from all of you.

I don’t usually sweeten or add milk to my teas, so my notes are based on that….also, the rating system kind of throws me—I’ve always been horrible with giving number ratings to things, so don’t take those as set in stone (Honestly, I usually don’t even use the numbers…).

Everything in my cupboard has at least one serving left in it…I try to keep it updated. :) (I actually just added all my sample sizes to my cupboard, so MOST of the tea in my cupboard is of that ‘sample’ size…)

random info: music and art are pretty important in my life… i also thoroughly enjoy nerdy things like video games, anime, knitting, Doctor Who (the 10th is my favourite…), A Song of Ice and Fire, and random cartoons and such…. and i love, love, love to read. :)

I’m married to my best friend (I’ve known him since I was 15….we were totally going to be in a band together. It was going to be HUGE…), and we’ve got three kiddos. They’re pretty neat, too, even if they try to put sugar in my Verdant tea when they drink it….
