drank Grand Yunnan by T2
1 tasting notes

I am not impressed at all with this tea. None of the smokiness comes through, and the maltiness is weak too. Overall a pretty flat tea.
In my opinion (but I could be wrong here), the dry leaves already reveal that this is not a great tea. They are far too orangey. This tea is supposed to have a few golden buds, whereas here most of the leaves are orange – not a good sign in my view.

Last week we got a couple of very summery days hit so I brewed up a big 2L of this bad boy with a bit of Turkish cherry thrown in to boot. Of course, it’s now cold again, because Hobart. HOWEVER, this is still delicious, if not a touch sweet. Didn’t need the cherry after all! I’ve been cutting it with soda water and that’s giving it a lovely fuzzy edge and taking off that sweetness.

I find this an average chamomile tea – it does the job but is not spectacular. Have tried others that seem nicer.

Like other people have said, this is not cheap tea but it is very nice tea. Oddly enough, my main issue with this tea is that it takes a long time to prepare, but to me it has a narrow “sweet spot” of drinking time before it goes too cold.

The main taste note I think of is how it is crisp like a fresh apple.

Preparation

drank Colada Paradiso by T2

Smells really sweet and tropical with fragrant pineapple and coconut!! I can almost see myself sipping Pina Colada on a beach. But when brewed I can barely taste the sweet fruits (the coconut scent is still there, though) in the liquor. There is mainly tartness from hibiscus and apple… which I must say is a bit disappointing….

drank Pumping Pomegranate by T2
10 tasting notes

I’m not normally a huge fan of fruit tisanes, especially when they contain apple, but this makes such a beautiful, refreshing cold brew. It’s still tart and a little sour, but I find those flavours much more enjoyable iced, and a little simple syrup really takes the edge off. Definitely tastes of hibiscus, apple and pomegranate and the tartness that goes with them, but it’s bright and fruity underneath and it’s really quite pleasant. Throw some soda water on top, and I know what I’ll be drinking this summer.

Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Hibiscus, Sour, Sweet, Tart

This morning I made up an overnight cold brew of this blend and subsequently threw out the rest because it reminds me of my ex boyfriend and I don’t even really like it (I got a box for free in a promo maybe around this time last year but I’m much better at throwing things away these days). We’ll see how the cold brew goes.

Smells like dessert both in the bag and steeped! Rich and creamy, the coconut taste is quite prominent. I’m gonna take with it with milk next time.

drank Sweet Dreams by T2
10 tasting notes

I don’t know about helping you sleep, but this tea is really nice. It’s relaxing and I often turn to it on sleepless nights to calm my anxiety about not being able to sleep, not necessarily to knock me out, but you know. It’s sweet, in a kind of honey-chamomile way, with a gentle little tartness to round it out, courtesy of the apple pieces, and it is definitely soothing. It’s difficult to make out any other flavours, which is surprising considering the lengthy ingredient list, but it’s a lovely blend nonetheless.

drank Mumbai Maple by T2
10 tasting notes

When I bought this tea, I was crazy about it. It was the best thing since sliced bread – heavily spiced, with a light maple sweetness. After taking a break from tea-drinking (think elimination diet so intense I couldn’t even use toothpaste), I really can’t understand what I saw in this tea. It’s just … meh. It’s not bad per say, but it’s nothing special. A standard, strong chai with an overarching artificial maple flavour. I’m over it and, unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be finishing my (mostly full) tin.

Flavors: Artificial, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger, Maple, Pepper

drank White Chai by T2
10 tasting notes

This is a really lovely, lightly spiced chai. It’s very delicate all around, with subtle hints of cinnamon and ginger rounded out with the gentle bitterness of the white tea. There’s a little lingering zing from the chilli at the very end, but it is not so hot that it’s overpowering. This tea is pretty easy drinking and it’s great on a cold day. That said, it is very expensive and I don’t think the price is quite justified – I doubt I’ll be repurchasing.

Flavors: Bitter, Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices

drank Yunnan Golden Tips by T2
28 tasting notes

A ‘premium’ tea from T2 that I took home as a sample and then seemed to disappear from the website before I had time to purchase some! And what a shame – because this tea is a winner! Its appearance is similar to Grand Yunnan but its flavour is far more complex and floral. On the lighter side of Chinese black teas (which is the side I like to be on) this tea is delicate, complex and well balanced.

Aroma: Delicate and enticing. Subtle dried orange peel and rose petal, with a slight woody undertone.

Palate: Delicious. Delicately sweet and complex. More ‘floral and fruity’ than ‘dark and woody’ but very well balanced. Beautiful rose petal notes and subtle marmalade. Good length.

Overall: This tea really impressed me. I feel like the flavour profile of this tea would be great cold-steeped but I finished mine before I got a chance to try it!

Flavors: Floral, Wood

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Gorgeous Geisha by T2
10 tasting notes

This smells amazing, but to drink it’s very… ehh. It’s fine – there’s nothing wrong with it per say, but the strawberry imparts an overpowering tartness that doesn’t really appeal to me. If fruity flavoured greens are your thing, you would probably like this (more power to ya), but I’m not a huge fan.

drank Pai Mu Tan by T2
1 tasting notes

For a white tea, the quality is rather poor compared to other brands. In my pack of 50g there’s a large number of twigs in amongst the leaves. the taste is also (and probably as a result) not as good. It’s basically a cheap import tea packaged up cleverly to appeal to younger generation tea drinkers. I think T2 teas are really overpriced if you look at the tea quality – T2’s Pai Mu Tan white tea is another example of this.

drank New York Breakfast by T2
4 tasting notes

An English Breakfast tea, with added flavour – mainly vanilla and cinnamon, plus something else apparently designed to make it taste like “pancakes”, but to me is more of a bread-y taste.

Brewed hot – just off 100c – for just under 4 minutes. Any more is likely to burn it. Added a touch of milk (only around 10mls) just to remove any astringency.

I find that sugar / sweetener isn’t required due to the vanilla and cinnamon.

To sum up – a warming staple good for winter mornings!

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cookie, Honey, Vanilla

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML
