16 Tasting Notes
This tea hits you over the head with the ever so strong scent of dried blueberries upon first examination. The tea itself looks beautiful, and the cornflower petals look simple and elegant. I remember being a bit concerned that the blueberry was going to overpower the brew but found I had nothing to be concerned about. It’a a very subtle influence, and the fragrance of the cornflower make it a very luscious tea, classic and refined. I like it with lots of milk and a bit of honey to sweeten it, although my SO thinks it’s perfect just as it is. The second brew is lovely to drink straight as well, the blueberry influence still lingering, sweet and scrumptious. I’m sad you can’t get this anymore, because I would definitely get it again. Guess I’ll just have to savour it and take my sweet time.
Oolong Bamboo spice is a unique tea, very sweet due to oolong’s natural flavours combined with licorice root. I find myself it’s a little too sweet, but those looking for a naturally sweet blend will love this, plus the health benefits of oolong can never be sung about enough. I think I went into this expecting a bit of kick, but that’s just my preference. Nonetheless it is a beautiful tea. Was very glad to give it a go considering you can no longer get it from T2. I’m known to pick things at random to try so this was a good experience.
A very tart and mouth puckering effect may throw some off ever so slightly, but for somebody like me, this is heaven. Not the best of fruit teas that T2 has to offer (Vanilla Slice and Southern Sunrise both much more universally appealing and unique tastes I find), but this is a very yummy tea indeed. When drank hot it’s very crisp, yet somehow soothing, almost like drinking hot tea with lemon when you’re sick. Despite the tart finish this tea is actually quite light.
I love this iced, so I might leave a note when I decide to make another iced batch. The weather doesn’t seem to be letting me enjoy iced teas though. I thought it was supposed to be summer!
