drank Oolong Formosa by T2
25 tasting notes

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

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Shimmer Punch by T2
3 tasting notes

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

drank Lamington by T2
3 tasting notes

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.

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

My favourite T2 tea so far. It doesn’t need anything – perfect as is for whenever you feel like a cuppa. I find the hint of citrus so energising – love it!

drank Chunky Chocolate by T2
3 tasting notes

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

drank White Chai by T2
3 tasting notes

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.

Flavors: Cinnamon

drank Whispering Woods by T2

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.

drank Pumping Pomegranate by T2

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

Ok yeah nah I’m getting brutal now I’m getting close to totally cleaning out my cupboard. Twinkle Berry, you just don’t cut it. Too tart. Chill with the hibiscus, mate. You’re gone.

drank Twinkle Berry by T2

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!

Iced 7 min, 45 sec

drank Ayurvedic Passion by T2

Whoops, cold brewed another jug of this blend for an extra day or two, which was a mistake. Green tea error! Mellowing it out with some extra water should do the trick. I mustn’t forget to try this hot.

I got this ages ago to blend with something else and I definitely can’t remember what that was.

But it’s ok! This is finally open and delicious as an overnight cold brew, I’m discovering this morning. Full of flavours.

drank Berry Berry Grapey by T2
911 tasting notes

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

drank Turkish Apple by T2
911 tasting notes

I don’t ever drink these turkish tisanes by themselves, because it’s basically like drinking sugar. Which is a bit weird. However, I love having them to sweeten iced brews, rather than using boring old regular sugar.

I don’t use them a LOT, but I’ve been icing a bit more lately and that reminded me to leave a tasting note. I’ll try to remember to update tasting notes each time they get thrown into a jug with another blend.

Preparation
Iced
VariaTEA

That’s an awesome idea for these types of tea! I will have to try that sometime :)

drank Turkish Cherry by T2
911 tasting notes

After writing yesterday about the blend that inspired me to buy this tisane, I had to drink it today! I learnt very quickly that the candy cane blend (half peppermint, half Turkish cherry) is NOT something I’m a fan of when served hot. But add ice and I love it. I LOVE IT. YUM!

I buckled and bought the cherry before Christmas when T2 finally had another tea society event (it had been SO LONG) and they had on a Christmas-themed brew they called “candy cane”, which I THINK was just peppermint and turkish cherry. It was fresh and delicious and I gave in and bought it.

I’ve since used it just recently with Rabbit Hole’s Ruby Zing, which was a bit too zingy and needed to be sweetened out (thanks hibiscus). A couple of scoops of turkish cherry into the 2L jug made it absolutely delicious.

I’ll try to remember to add a tasting note each time I splice it with something!

VariaTEA

I have such a variety of the tisanes from when I went to turkey and I would have never thought to use them this way.

Memily

I hope this opens up your tisane world! ;)
