drank T2 Matcha by T2
13 tasting notes

Matcha is my absolute favourite! I love it as a milkshake with vanilla soy and honey (my absolute favourite). I love it as a latte. I love it straight up! Depending on how I make this will depend on how much matcha I use. When I’m having it straight I do not use much at all! I find if you use too much it becomes quite bitter and overpowering. However, if I am making it as a latte or milkshake I do tend to use a bigger scoop. I think that ratio is very important when making up matcha and I highly recommend using the traditional whisk and matcha bowl. So many people ask me if they can use a spoon…no! please don’t. Matcha comes in different grades so each company will taste a bit different. T2 use a ceremonial grade. Additionally, matcha can be used in smoothies, baking, cooking….I even use it in a face mask! It’s basically the best.

drank Marrakech by T2
13 tasting notes

I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed Marrakech! The peppermint is a nice addition to the gunpowder green especially as it is peppermint oil rather than leaves. This can be brewed up both hot and iced. It feels very cleansing to drink and you get a mixture of earthy and sweet flavours.

Flavors: Earth, Green, Mint, Peppermint, Sweet

drank Chilli Kiss by T2
13 tasting notes

I adore Chilli Kiss! It’s a great when you’re feeling like a black tea but want something a little bit different. The chilli isn’t overpowering and the blending of cinnamon gives it a spicy aroma. I usually add some honey and milk to my brew. It’s also great to make into an iced latte – soy milk and honey!

Flavors: Cinnamon

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Oolong Berry by T2
13 tasting notes

I found myself disappointed by this tea. I enjoy a good Oolong but the berry flavour in this tea tasted fake and synthetic (even though I know its not). I don’t really have much else to say about it. I know people who do like this tea but I would suggest getting a sample brewed up before purchasing a whole box as it is more expensive.

drank Melbourne Breakfast by T2
13 tasting notes

This is definitely my staple breakfast tea. I adore Melbourne Breakfast!
You get the benefits of a breakfast tea but with a hint of vanilla. This tea can be brewed either on its own or with milk and sweetener (I use soy milk and honey!). This is a great tea for someone who usually drinks English Breakfast but want’s to try something new and different. If you like English Breakfast, you’ll love Melbourne Breakfast!

drank Chai by T2
13 tasting notes

I am an avid Chai drinker. When I go to a cafe I will ALWAYS order their chai – If I don’t like it…I usually won’t visit again! Harsh, I know. Anyway, I don’t LOVE this chai. Personally, T2’s organic chair is MUCH nicer but it’s still not amazing. I’m not sure exactly why I don’t love it but after reading other reviews I would probably have to agree that there is too much clove. I think it tastes better when you brew it up on the stove but still…not perfect. I also find it to be quite a bitter chai. Despite this – If you live near a T2 store that has a Brew Bar check out their Chai latte as its super tasty and the best way to have it!

Flavors: Bitter, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Spicy, Sweet

drank Tummy Tea by T2
13 tasting notes

This tea is great for digestion, headaches or after you’ve had a big meal and reaaaaaly want a tea but know you won’t be able to handle anything too heavy! I am not usually a liquorish root fan but mixed with the peppermint and fennel it works really nicely. I like to have this tea quite weak as I do find the recommended brew time of 4/5 minutes to be too overpowering. However, I know a lot of people who do enjoy its strength!

Flavors: Earth, Fennel Seed, Licorice, Mint, Peppermint, Sweet

drank Southern Sunrise by T2
13 tasting notes

I know a lot of people who drink Southern Sunrise as a hot tea but I, personally, enjoy it iced! This tasting note will therefore be based on this tea being prepared iced.

This tea is perfect iced either on its own or as a blend. My favourite iced blend using this tea is – Southern Sunrise, Pumping Pomegranate, fresh lime and honey! It is so tasty!

Southern Sunrise has zesty, refreshing flavours and tastes soo good! To make this iced I use double the amount of tea. As this is actually a tisane and not a tea you can brew it for as long as you like! If I am making a small jug or just a cup I would brew it for a minimum of 5 minutes. Otherwise, If I’m making a big jug I may even brew it overnight and make it into a concentrate. Either way – its tasty!

Flavors: Apple, Blackberry, Citrus, Citrus Fruits, Citrus Zest, Grapefruit, Hibiscus, Lemongrass

drank Creme Brulee by T2
13 tasting notes

This is one of my favourite T2 flavoured black teas. It can be drunk either on its own, with milk and sweetener (I use honey!) or as a mixing tea. I especially like to mix this one with T2’s Terrific Toffee or Toasty Nougat. It has caramel, nutty flavours with hints of black bitterness behind. This is a great ‘dessert’ tea. If you’re going to add milk I would suggest a soy or nut milk as it best compliments the flavours.

Flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut, Nutty, Vanilla

drank Sencha Quince by T2
13 tasting notes

I was very skeptical of this tea to begin with since there isn’t actually any quince related ingredients included but I have to say that it is so delicious and tasty! It has a nice balance of earthy and sweet flavours. It’s great alongside pastry-type dishes or, my personal favourite, with shortbread cookies! So delicious.

Flavors: Earth, Floral, Green, Sweet

drank White White Cocoa by T2
1296 tasting notes

This smells amazing, both in the bag and steeped. Very creamy, chocolatey, and yes, definitely white chocolate… normally not my favorite, admittedly, but that’s another conversation. It tasted better cooled than hot, and I’m a bit surprised how much I enjoyed it.

Hm. Who sent this to me? I thought possibly OMGsrsly (but see no reviews from her of it), then I see VariaTEA has shared a bunch… or perhaps it’s from my colleague in Australia who sent me a box of Aussie tea about a year ago? I really need to start writing down people’s names and handles on my incoming swap bags. :) Thank you to whomever shared this though! I love it.

drank Southern Sunrise by T2

A fairly pleasant fruit tisane, albeit enhanced with artificial flavouring (as T2 does with almost all of their flavoured teas). Very citrus-y with strong grapefruit and lime flavours. This is tasy iced and also quite nice hot.

Flavors: Citrus Fruits, Citrus Zest, Grapefruit, Sweet

drank Riotous Rose by T2
818 tasting notes

Finally busted open this box that’s been on the shelf forever, because its Best Before is on the horizon. Eep! I gotta up my tea-drinking ante!

I think I originally picked this up to use as a blend-with-others tea. In fact, I’m almost certain of it. And yet I tried it the other night on its own, just for a spot-check. It’s fine. It’s quite tart. I’m going to check out the T2 website to see how many blends it goes into and then maybe play with those.

Ok, this is a Tea Sparrow sample from Silver Service, but it sounds the same as this blend so I’m going to put this note here. I finished off the sample by cold brewing it overnight (spring is here! I finally don’t feel the need to have hot tea all the time!). Very tasty! Fruity and floral, quite refreshing, great cold. I’m a little disappointed this is a sipdown!

drank Terrific Toffee by T2
69 tasting notes

They were having a special at T2, so I got a 3.5 oz. package of Terrific Toffee for free when I purchased their Jade Mountain. Pretty nice giveaway, I’d say. Dry leaf smells sweet, not quite like pastry, not quite the caramel I expected, but more like cake. Yep, cake. How can you not love that? Brewed, and with milk, I get more of the creamy vanilla with a slight buttery taste. Butter cake! Or maybe yellow cake batter. The aroma is definitely like a vanilla cupcake. Quite yum. I have been known to oversteep my flavored blacks, and this one was no exception, but it was all good, no bitterness or bite at all. I even overleafed just a little bit (1.5 tsp per cup). I get the feeling if I played by the rules and brewed it according to the instructions, it would have been too weak. A very nice dessert tea (but I had this one with breakfast).

Flavors: Butter, Cake, Cream, Sugar, Vanilla

beelicious

LOVE Jade Mountain!

drank New York Breakfast by T2
69 tasting notes

Had a cup this morning, from a sample I got when I purchased some tea at the relatively new T2 retail down in SoHo. I brewed it in the infuser I purchased from them, so it was all very easy, but weird for me as I usually make a pot of tea at a time, not a cup. It’s a very nice black tea, with cinnamon and vanilla notes as well as something earthy going on. I can’t quite determine that component, but on the whole, it was a nice complement to my breakfast. Maybe the earthy thing was supposed to be the pancake flavor they describe, but it didn’t seem like pancakes to me. That would have been wonderful, because I just looooove pancakes. Especially for dinner.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Earth, Vanilla

Every now and then a tea comes along that really surprises you. This was mine!

A really unique nose (albeit coming from someone who doesn’t drink much Darjeeling). Delicate but interesting, this tea has the aromatic character of a black tea veiled by the subtle freshness of a light green tea. Not dissimilar to a delicate Pai Mu Tan in some respects. Interesting, though the more I pick up on the nose of this tea the more I long for a little bit more punch – a longing that is quickly delivered on by a sniff of the fresh wet leaves, which smack of deep aromatic flavour and bring to mind a savoury character I can’t quite put my finger on… is it Oragano? Dried chives? Roast chicken?

A real freshness on the palate, with just enough tannin and acidity to make it a lively brew, but without any bitter astringency. And that savoury note is ever present on the palate too, this time with a more distinctly iodine character reminiscent of dried seaweed. The distinctive sweet herbaceousness common to Darjeelings (well, to me anyway) is certainly there, but in a more delicate and restrained form that I’ve never experienced before. Above all this tea is subtle and beautifully balanced.

The second steep brings out a real sweetness with rose petals, light straw and a subtle green freshness.

All up a really interesting cup. As a green tea lover I haven’t met many Darjeerlings I’ve wanted to be friends with, but this has made me wonder what I’ve been missing!

drank Strawberries and Cream by T2
582 tasting notes

This one is such a disappointment.. I thought that it would be delicious – creamy, sweet and juicy. What I taste is that general fruity taste that so many of these blends have… not really anything specific, but more of a mix of hibiscus with just a hint of random fruits. I was really hoping for strawberries and cream, but it was mostly hibiscus with a tiny bit of sweetness.
