drank Fruit Royale by T2

Brew for 10 minutes-ish, wait for it to cool, put in fridge; when cold, add lots of ice and drink. Delightfully refreshing for a summer afternoon!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Liquorice Legs by T2
8 tasting notes

The huge amount of liquorice makes this sweeter than sibling Tummy Tea, and with a little less subtle variety in flavour – but if you want something hot and sweet without falling into cloying, it’s great. Also good cold.

Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

drank Gen Mai Cha Sencha by T2

Lovely nutty rice flavour, combined with more delicate sencha flavour. Great for having with food, or when you want a hot, flavoursome drink that doesn’t even skirt near rich/strong.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 30 sec

drank Red Choc Mint by T2

Lovely fresh peppermint flavour; the cocoa gives a hint of chocolate without being sweet. Lovely fresh nutty flavour of rooibos.

drank Tummy Tea by T2

The licorice root in this is amazing – it doesn’t taste like licorice candies, there’s just a very smooth and sweet general flavour and aftertaste. It’s definitely not overpowering, and the fennel seeds and peppermint help balance out the sweetness with freshness.

I tried it iced in the store and was sold, it’s just as yummy hot – better, even, as when cold the peppermint harked back to mouthwash a little bit(!).

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 45 sec

drank Monk Pear by T2
8 tasting notes

This is one of my favourite teas – the sweet pear and jasmine really gives that added refreshing zing that you get a hint of with bergamot. (This comes out especially when you drink it black.)

Everyone I’ve introduced to this tea has adored it.

drank Melbourne Breakfast by T2
8 tasting notes

I don’t ordinarily go for vanilla flavours, but was definitely pleasantly surprised! I am a big fan of strong black teas, and love English Breakfast, so this was a well-chosen gift for me.

The vanilla adds just an edge of sweetness, it’s certainly not dessert-like, or at all artificial.

The beaniness of the vanilla flavour means it tastes very good with soy milk, too.

As soon as I opened the box I began to realise what a great on-the-spot decision it had been to buy it – the smell wafting out was rich and sweet, and peering into the bag I was totally delighted to see the brilliant yellow dried flowers, almost entirely in-tact.

I like to steep it for as long as possible, the gorgeous aroma comes out in the steam and the flavour is smooth and soothing.

Also, the packaging is brilliant – the inner bag comes with a little bulldog clip to keep it sealed.

Best camomile ever!
