drank Hojicha Bancha by T2
1 tasting notes

So I was feeling adventurous and picked up a box of Hojicha Bancha from T2. I’ve only had a few cups so far, but this stuff is good! The scent of the dry leaves was so toasty and earthy that I actually freaked out for a moment, but I’m beginning to really appreciate it. Earthy is a good thing, yeah? Water drowns out the intense aroma anyway, so you have nothing to worry about. This stuff is so wonderfully toasty and clean that I would have no trouble drinking it every day, which I’m pretty sure I’ll end up doing. It also seems to leave some kind of sweetness in the back of my throat – not sure if it’s just me, but it is really nice!

Preparation

This really is a wonderful tea, and a must try if you want to sample something different to the usual chai. It was also my introduction to the T2 brand, and what an intro it was! :) So smooth, and so very more-ish.

Who says you can’t have a breakfast tea in the afternoon?

This one has a lovely vanilla aroma in addition to that fragrance distinct to black tea itself—an intoxicating combination. It brews up quite dark, and is lusciously smooth. The tea base is excellent and full-bodied, with just a hint of the Yunnan “fuzziness” in it. The vanilla is perfect, and the whole thing has a honey sweetness to it that’s just right. Thank you beelicious for sharing this sample with me, especially since it seems to be one of your favorites too!

Sounds fantastic!

Mikumofu

It is! On second thought though, maybe it was too strong for afternoon…kept me vibrating for quite a while!

beelicious

One of my all time favorites!! So glad you enjoyed it :)

Mikumofu

I will treasure it for those mornings that need an extra boost! :)

drank Choc Chip Chai by T2
1696 tasting notes

Oh, phew! I thought there’d be chocolate chips in here so I was avoiding trying this lovely sample from MissB. No, just cocoa chips. Cacao chips. Whatever.

So I’m brewing it up! There are bits of anise and ginger and cloves and it smells like a chai. Steeped, it is almost pungently floral from something. Lots of spice flavour. Maybe it’s the cardamom? There’s loads of cinnamon and star anise as well.

I added a bit of coconut milk creamer thing. (Not homemade.)

I probably shouldn’t have dug my spoon into the almond butter. It’s taken down the accidental spice from my salsa, but wow that coats the mouth. Oh well.

Mmm. This is nice. It’s really quite strong on the spices. Star anise, cinnamon sweetness, clove, some heat from the ginger, and I guess the pungent “floral” is the orange peel. I’m really liking this, but then I do tend to like chai.

This might be even better brewed with milk.

Definitely something to check out if you can get your hands on T2 and like strong chai. :)

Edit: Ok, I’m confused. The website lists: Our classic Chai blend of black tea with cloves, star anise, sweet cinnamon, ginger and orange peel and delicious cacao bean pieces provides a distinctive, warm chocolaty aroma with nutty nuances. And then it lists: Black tea, cloves, star anise, cinnamon, orange flowers, ginger, cardamon, gingko leaves, flavour. I do NOT notice chocolate flavour. At all. I do notice the orange peel/flowers/whatever. Pungently floral when dry, and it carries through when tasting, although more as an afterthought than at the front of the sip. I thought I tasted cardamom but second-guessed myself. There is cardamom in here for sure.

Hmm.

My tongue went NUMB from drinking the full 16 oz! OMG. So much clove! Still, it was good. :)

Suziqzer

Sometimes I enjoy that numb tongue feeling when I have a good spicy tea. :)

drank Toasty Warm by T2
234 tasting notes

Oh, hello toasty. I tried this as a sample (and might have gone back for, like, thirds) at the T2 shop in Shoreditch last time I was in the neighbourhood, and it really is cozy. It’s a simply-flavoured simple oolong that hits the spot really well when you want something a that’s warm and sweet and kind of like a soft cotton throw blanket. It’s got soft notes of toasty almonds and honey, and while I wish I was getting more flavour out of the oolong base, I wonder if that might be because this is one that needs a longer steep than I gave it. I’m definitely happy to keep investigating it!

Kittenna

Sounds quite tasty.

Sami Kelsh

‘Tis! It’s not the most complicated of teas, but it lives up to the name.

Can’t taste any vanilla which is disappointing. Definitely needs sweetening.

A great soothing herbal tea, definitely a relaxing way to end the day. It’s a very easy to drink herbal tisane, with a nice green colour and the touch of lemon balm and jasmine ensure a lovely sleep.

drank Melbourne Breakfast by T2
12 tasting notes

I first tried this tea as a sample sachet in one of T2’s Selfie boxes (which are excellent when you want to try a tea without committing). Melbourne Breakfast was a real standout for me. It is a black tea with a vanilla flavour woven in that really is wonderful and a perfect tea to wake you up start the day. I always ensure I have a supply of this tea on demand (which is quite frequently).

Flavors: Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 450 OZ / 13308 ML

This tea was a total blind buy for me, but I loved the description from the T2 website. So glad I bought it! It’s a lovely tea, with a beautiful subtle chocolate flavour and made even better with the scent and taste of peppermint. I can see myself drinking so many cups of this.

Flavors: Chocolate, Mint, Peppermint, Rooibos

drank Gorgeous Geisha by T2
12 tasting notes

I don’t drink a lot of green tea, most of the ones I’ve tried in the past have been too bitter or grassy for my tastes. This one is quite good though, it’s got a lovely sweetness from the strawberries and is more creamy than most green teas I’ve tried before. It’s made me consider checking out more greens in the future.

Flavors: Creamy, Fruity, Green, Strawberry

An incredibly rich aroma with strong hints of apple, chicory and cinnamon that is remarkably well-reflected in the pastry-like flavour profile – for anyone who enjoys a bit of home-baked goodness :)

Very strong flavour. I had to cut down how much I would usually put in my tea pot. There is a strong flavour of bergamot. Nice but at the price they charge I wont be in a hurry to buy more

A little sweet, and at times it’s overpoweringly so. But it’s a nice alternative to dessert!

Huh.

You know what? This is actually TOO sweet. Whatever sweetness they’ve plied on here, it’s taken it way over the line. This is a candy drink, this isn’t a herbal/fruit infusion. Just settle down, T2. Seriously, they’re headed more and more in this direction lately. I went in the other day to try all the CHRISTMAS/December limited edition blends and as much as I love the butterfly designs and the beautiful tins, the teas themselves were too sickeningly sweet and made up of like twenty different ingredients. Take a fucking chill pill, T2, I’m pretty done with you lately.

Cathy Zheng

I didn’t like any of those new blends either! They seem to be more miscellaneous food items than actual tea.

Memily

It’s so disappointing!

Andrea Stephens

Got to agree with both Cathy & yourself the last couple of limited releases seem to be moving into Teavana food/sugar/artificial flavour territory. Throwing choc bits & sugar brittles seems to be taking an easy option. I apprieciate that it takes a lot of testing and combining to make natural flavours balance and still be sweet without beiung sickly, but Where they succeeded with their Chai & Cherry Limited Editions this year the failed IMO with their chocolate Limited range as well as banana Limited range.
