My favourite chai in the world, tied with Melbourne-based Prana Chai.
T2’s organic version tastes much better than the standard one. However, all my experience with this blend has been with packages produced before the Unilever takeover. (I feel like some of their products have gone down in quality since the takeover, probably for the Unilever profit margin.)
The flipside of that, is T2 expanding past Australia to become a global operation which means the rest of the world has one more giant offering. (If anything, T2 does have quite the range.)
Small saucepan, brewed stovetop for seven minutes on medium-high heat. 3 – 5 teaspoons of chai (depending on how cold the weather is..) with one cup cold water and one cup So Good Vanilla Soy Milk and 1/4tsp of New South Wales White Box Honey.
Only reason this doesn’t have a score of 100 is because I haven’t tasted it straight without any additions yet. But that’s because it is just simply too good the way I’ve always made it.
A good, dependable, if slightly underwhelming semi-fermented oolong.
Nose – Light. I get light stone fruit, floral notes and sugarcane. Very slight oolong butteryness and oats. Fairly characteristic of a ‘green oolong’.
Palate – Subtle and well balanced. Quite fresh and vibrant with light but lingering buttery sweetness with a touch of grassy zing. Handles three steepings, with a deeper, more vegetal flavour developing in the second steep and some of the more delicate notes dropping off by the third.
Colour – light golden green
Overall: Very pleasant but slightly unremarkable. A nice everyday drop and one for those who like their oolongs ‘green’.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Sugarcane
Got this tea in a sampler after my last order and GOSH IT IS SO BLIMMIN GOOD! Spicy, cinnamon, Orange peel sigh
Will definitely repurchase and I recommend to lovers of chai.
You can find this tea at T2

This tea was one of three limited edition christmas gift boxes so I was desperate to try it out. When I tested it in the shop, it had the perfect balance of fruit, the perfect icy cold temperature and the perfect strength. I immediately grabbed it as I was in a rush and tried it the next morning.
The first cup was alright I guess, but I didn’t get it as good as the people in t2. The other times I’ve had it its gotten worse and worse. It’s too watery, its too strong, it’s not balanced, it tasted like alcohol at some point. It wasn’t very nice.
I guess I’ve sort of neglected this tea. I haven’t tried it again in ages but I can be bothered, really. I wish it could taste like it did in t2 that day.
I also forgot to add that it tastes like cornflower. I have a thing about cornflowers in tea, i just don’t like it.
Flavors: Alcohol, Blackberry, Blueberry, Coconut, Oats
I’ve heard a mixture of negative and positive reviews about this tea and I thought I’d try it out to find my own opinion. some said that the smell was amazing but it was tasteless; others protesting that it was amazing, ticked all the boxes and couldn’t be better.
So heres my opinion.
When I opened the box the first thing was the smell. Chocolate. Coconut. Vanilla. I couldn’t possibly dream of anything better. When I was making the first cup I used my well loved T2 tea maker, like always. The smell of the tea was devine. When I took the first sip, I was a little disappointed. Yes, It was a little tasteless, but the second sip was different, it was just like what It smelt like – possibly even better. I kept on sipping; no more disappointments.
The only theory on the first sip is that I had such high expectations of it being amazing. I still have this tea and I savour every sip- trust me its good. the taste is a little fainter than the smell but altogether to die for. Will definitely repurchase this tea.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Coconut, Creamy, Vanilla
Beautiful light, smooth white tea. I re-brew this tea up to three times. Good to the last drop!
More expensive than other teas, but worth it. One of my absolute faves.
Tastes best paired with light, savoury foods, like a salad. Alternatively, perfect on its own.
Flavors: Earth, Nutty, Roasted, Wood

A good sub for anyone in need of a 10AM chocolate fix. It’s not “sweet” sweet, like some might expect this tea to taste, but I still enjoy it – and I’m a chocoholic. Almost tastes like a Cherry Ripe (an Australian chocolate bar).
Flavors: Cherry, Chocolate
My first loose leaf tea ever! The flavour might seem too strong the first time if you aren’t used to it, but after the second or third brew, it’s perfect. The taste of the white tea itself is quite subtle, but I can still really pick up the cinnamon and cardamom. The warm chili aftertaste is great on a cold day.

Some of my friends lost their cool over this limited edition blend so I snapped a box up for myself, and I’ve only just gotten around to unboxing (high five for a great selection of flavoured blacks open in time for cooler months!).
First mug with a splash of milk and I’m… underwhelmed. Or just… whelmed, I guess. I’m cold brewing some overnight and I’ll see if maybe plain (as recommended but I had milk to use up, ok) does it any more justice.
I got a sample of this from the T2 Fruity sample box and it’s fantastic! There are some definite cranberry and hibiscus notes in it but it’s really great – definitely something I’m going to pick up when I have some disposable income again and more room in my tea cupboard.
Flavors: Cranberry, Hibiscus, Sour
This blend was released with Shimmer Punch as a limited edition for Christmas 2013. Shimmer Punch was the hands-down winner there but Twinkle Berry is still a beautiful iced/ cold brew option. I’m not 100% sure why I added it to my cupboard back then though, as it clearly hasn’t had a lot of pull with me… I panicked about the expiration just recently and cracked it open ASAP. Summer’s over as of today! Let’s hope the warm weather stays around a little longer (this may be the first time in my life I’ve ever wished this) as I’ve gotta get through this right away. Jugs ahoy!
Wow, I don’t know if it’s because this box was almost at expiry or if DAVIDsTEA is just that much more flavourful, but it was a bad idea to follow an amazing cold brew of DT Superberry with a cold brew of this… which, to be perfectly honest, just tastes like black tea. I can’t get much else at all.
But with today’s hot weather, it’s acceptable!
Had this iced with lunch today. I thought it would be a good choice, since it’s red, it’s strawberry, and, you know, Valentine’s Day. Nice fruity flavor, more of a general berry than specifically strawberry, and I did get a little bit of creaminess at the end of every sip (how on earth do they do that?). Pleasant and very drinkable. Not sure if I would get it again, but I will definitely happily finish this. Still should try it hot, although that’s not necessarily calling to me.
Flavors: Berry, Cream
