drank Melbourne Breakfast by T2
648 tasting notes

Interesting. I didn’t pick this out as being a Yunnan blend. The vanilla and honey are yummy. It’s more a dessert tea in my mind than a breakfast tea, but I’d buy this to have around. Especially for tea parties. I think it would be a good gateway flavored tea for non-tea people. :) I cannot for the life of me remember who shared this with me, so I apologize. It was in a little silver and clear package with purple writing. If that was you, thank you bunches!! :)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML
beelicious

that would be me! Glad you enjoyed it – its one of my favorites :)

drank Pu-Erh Blue Lemon by T2
248 tasting notes

If there’s one really, really important thing to remember about this tea that cannot be over-emphasised, it’s this:

PLEASE RINSE THIS TEA. THEY’RE NOT KIDDING.

Pre-rinse, it’s just really hardcore and not very pleasant, but post-rinse? Yum. Initial bright lemony goodness sparkles, with undercurrents of blueberry moving into that wonderful farm-fresh deep pu erh flavour. Yes, GOOD.

Also, at long last and after struggling for gazillions of years, I think I got a job! I mean, they offered and I said yes and it starts in September. And it sounds right up my alley too. Plus, I won a giveaway from Bluebird yesterday (gorgeous free tea coming my way? Yippee!) and my holiday starts at about 4 tomorrow afternoon for a week in north Wales with the in-laws! AND I’ve got some sweet illustration commissions to get done today. I think this might be enough to make up for the fact that I’m on a 5:2 fast day and I’m not wholly convinced that this diet is doing anything because I CANNOT LOSE ANY WEIGHT BECAUSE I BARELY ATE ANY FOOD IN THE FIRST PLACE AND STILL GAINED LIKE 2 STONE. :(

But this is a good tea.

Sil

wooohooo!!!!

Congrats on the job offer!

Smells divine, and tastes the same! I’m not usually a fan of T2 chais as I find them too spicy, but this one is milder and has a nice vanilla note. Great before bed!

drank Caramel Pop by T2
854 tasting notes

I tried a sample of this in store, being part of the current promotion (caramel teas?). I didn’t get much from the store prep of just this… probably because I’m not crazy about green teas. Still, there was a takeaway leaf sample so I grabbed that to see if I could play around with it at all once I got home. I brought it in to work today instead and made it into a soy latte. Big reminder of the flavoured Red Leaf matcha samples I got to try! So if that stuff floats your boat, turn this blend into a latte and you’ll be pleased as punch.

drank Aqua Coco by T2
854 tasting notes

How did I not realise this would essentially be a dupe for DT’s Coco-Lemon Thai, the tea that confused the crap out of me the entire way through my share of it!?

I was lulled into buying this a few months ago during—if I recall correctly—a green tea promo month at T2; this was one of three on offer and my favourite. I tried it in store iced with Turkish Apple tisane and it was absolutely delicious. So now I have to remember to drink it that way because hot it’s giving me PTSD flashbacks to that DT blend (that wasn’t awful, just forever confusing to my tastebuds).

“Would you recommend this tea?” I DON’T KNOW!???!!?

I’v never had T2 before this tea because of their prices… but, thanks to MissB I have a few to try. Unfortunately, this does not say anything good about T2. Not going to explain a disappointment since that is what this was.

drank Lamington by T2
177 tasting notes

Mmmm I’ve drunk like three cups of this tea this morning… its pretty darn amazing and seriously reminds me of eating a big fluffy lamington…. especially when I add milk!! The dry leaf has some huge coconut pieces and a generous sprinkling of chocolate pieces which really helps the tea taste so darn authentic… No need to desperately crave a lamington when I have this tea in my stash – all i need to do is take a sip and close my eyes!!

Like Coco Loco but with more body, this tea has a subtle chocolate fragrance and taste. Very nice.

drank Vanilla Slice by T2
14 tasting notes

One of the only teas I would take on its own with nothing added. I’m usually adding milk or sweetener but this one is just so delicious as is, you don’t need to add a thing. It smells like mulled wine and tastes like a beautiful dessert. Would love to try it chilled also!

Flavors: Berry, Vanilla

drank Lamington by T2

Smells divine, with notes of chocolate and coconut as the name suggests. Quite good without sweetener, or add a touch of syrup or honey if you have a sweet tooth. I may or may not have picked out and eaten one of the chocolate buds!

I don’t know why its got such a bad rap, but I’m obsessed with this tea. It’s perfect for winter and has helped curb my sugar cravings. Very spicy with no caffeine!

Another sample grabbed so I could quickly make a decision on low stocks… another big shrug from me. Masala chai flavours with extra peppercorn and chilli, eh.

Grabbed a sample of this today because the friendly T2 staffer told me they only had two tins of it left to sell. I tried it tonight and eh, it’s just another chai with some sweetness thrown at it. ¯\(ツ)

drank Strawberries and Cream by T2
1 tasting notes

While lovely and mild when served hot, this tisane is best served chilled. It tastes very nice when blended with T2 Turkish Apple (which is made up of mostly sugar) or with a few teaspoons of strawberry jam in the mix. For an even better summer drink, add a few fresh strawberries and some orange and lime slices.

Preparation
1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Gorgeous Geisha by T2
2 tasting notes

I would say it’s a green tea that has quite a good fruity aroma before and after steeping, meaning that the dry smell is similar to the wet taste. I bought this tea solely due to the dry aroma and it wasn’t disappointing to have that same aroma when I steep and drink it.
I wouldn’t recommend this tea for entry level green tea drinkers as the taste of strawberry overpowers the taste of the leafy green tea. Nonetheless, it adds a bit of fun to my green tea drinking ritual because sometimes going for the same old pure green can be rather boring.

Flavors: Bitter, Fruit Punch, Fruity, Strawberry

drank Tulsi Red Magic by T2
1151 tasting notes

Another tea from MissB. Thank you, thank you! The flavour profile is up my alley, seeing that I’m a sucker for spices. Plus, the aroma of the dry leaf reminded me of Zhena’s Coconut Chai black, which I enjoyed but grew tired of halfway into the tin. It’s also kind of like DAVIDsTEA’s Coco Chai rooibos or whatever, which follows the same story as Zhena’s. Maybe that explains why I’m not digging this one? There’s an ultra soapy note in here that’s woven throughout the spices. I’d say the fennel is the most prominent of them. No cocoa.

Ooooh, ok, I’m kind of slow. I think the soapiness is coming from the coconut. Derrrrr. I’m quite lucky in that I’ve pretty much never encountered a soapy coconut tea up until now, perhaps due to a combination or luck and always trying to drink my coconut blends whilst they’re still fresh. That said, I won’t give this a proper rating.

As much as I try, I am just not a fan of green tea. This one’s not too bad, and works well as a palette cleanser, but I wouldn’t drink it for enjoyment.

drank Ayurvedic Tea Chai by T2

Probably nice if you like peppery spice but it’s not for me. This one has lots of bits and pieces in it to give various scents and flavours, but it’s quite weak. Not a fan.

drank Choc Chip Chai by T2
1440 tasting notes

A tea from the traveling tea box! Thanks Amariel for sending it my way :)
(what was this one called again? My memory is broken haha)

Anyhow, the tea. With or without a dash of milk I found it quite yummy.
I see a lot of notes about how the chocolate aspect is missing. I dunno I went in thinking I probably wouldn’t find much cocoa and while I do find that I was right, there IS a distinct chocolate cookie impression, just not a strong one. I’d say 80% ginger cookie and 20% chocolate cookie. That exceeded my expectations! :P
Otherwise, the spices here are quite nice. Smooth, and perfectly blended. Of course, in a chai each spoonful of loose tea is slightly different so maybe I just got lucky.
Either way, if I came across this in a store, I’d snatch it up.

On a more personal note, this is turning out to be a terrible no good week. Some drama happened over the weekend and I got burned. Then Mum didn’t come home last night and she wasn’t answering her cell. She had an ultrasound appointment earlier that day so we were a bit worried and confused.
We got a phonecall at 12:30am that she was in the hospital with kidney stones. Had to pick her up and finally fell into bed at almost 4am.
I’m a bit of a zombie today. Plus I’ve been hovering over mama bird making sure she’s got all the things she needs.
I wonder what Wednesday will have in store for us…

Terri HarpLady

Wow, Indigo. Sound like you need a hug. Sending hugs your way :)
Glad your mom is ok!

Indigobloom

Aw thank you Terri, I need all the hugs I can get.
I’m quite relieved about Mum. but still worried!

beelicious sent this one my way and i was happy to see it. I love me some ginger! My only complaint about this one, was that it could have used even more ginger. But the balance between the lemongrass and ginger made for a tasty brew. I’m a fan :)

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
