When I drank this tea I realized heaven is officially on earth, from the first sip my taste buds started a huge dance on my tongue which lasted for hours after the first sip. If I were to ever have kids I would name them after this tea.

drank New Zealand Black by T2
168 tasting notes

$48 AUD for 30 grams of tea seems a little steep until I converted it back into what I’ve been paying in USD which puts this at $36USD which sounds slightly better EXCEPT for the fact that although I live in the U.S. I’m actually paid in AUD so all this has done is make me realize just how much money I’m suddenly spending on tea since the Aussie dollar has dropped from $1.10 US to 0.75c US in the last four months!! That tea buying hiatus is looking more and more appealing… Sigh!!

T2 has this tea as a sample pot at the counter and I couldn’t help but pour myself a little taste while waiting to purchase my bags and bags and bags of Melbourne Breakfast tea (the staple go to tea in my house!). I sipped and poured myself another taste as the sales assistant spun me a story about where this tea originated from and how 600 tea plants were brought into New Zealand twenty years ago and how only a handful survived through customs making this tea very rare…. As I sipped and tasted the malt, barley, honey and cocoa notes I wa convinced into buying a tin of this pretty amazing tea! Since then I’ve steeped at home and found the same delicious notes accompanied by an almost woodsy or pine note and as the tea stands up well to three or four sweepings I guess the $48 is a little easier to swallow

drank Jade Mountain by T2

So apparently, four days after release, this tea is sold out across Australia!! Which I kinda understand… I mean, green tea and chocolate… What an interesting combination! Who wouldn’t want to give this a try??

I’ve been trekking all across Adelaide trying to find this tea for my Aunt and unfortunately have competely struck out… Although the last store I tried yesterday did sneak me a couple of small bagged samples so at least we’re all getting to try it before we head home!

This tea is pretty interesting! I can’t really taste the green tea or any of the flavors I usually associate with this type of leaf. I do get considerable amounts of brown sugar, berries, hazelnut and cocoa or chocolate which I usually associate with flavored black teas not greens!!

I can understand why this tea sold out so quickly!! Fingers crossed the Melbourne stores restock and have some boxes available before we leave!

drank Creme Brulee by T2
1 tasting notes

First tried this at the T2 store, which they provided as a sample. It was so beautiful that my boyfriend and I purchased it immediately!
As soon as we took it home and made it, however, it tasted extremely flat. We used the T2 Jug and steeped it for 3:45 (package recommends 2-4 minutes), but there was very little flavour when I sampled it. I steeped it for an extra minute, and it made the tea taste extremely flat – not even bitter, just flat. The smell of the tea is divine, but we can hardly taste anything!
I know it has the potential to be a beautiful tea, so I’ll follow the website recommendations in future: be a little more generous with the teaspoon serving, steep it for exactly 3 minutes and add honey. It sounds like it’s hard to get right, but going to keep trying!

Hot brewed but then fridged overnight. I wanted to make sure I got all the sweet bits through the hot brew but wanted to drink it cold? Yeah? It was good, but I’m still cranky at T2 and their overingredienting of the last few months.

drank Turkish Apple by T2
3 tasting notes

Made iced tea with this one. It came as part of a bundle.
The first glass out of the jug tasted like something from my childhood – maybe the little plastic straws full of sugary sherbet that one would find in a showbag? Complete with faint plastic undertones reminiscent of chewing on said plastic straw to make sure one got every last granule of sherbet out of the sweet treat’s packaging. Something close to that anyway. I wasn’t sure I liked it so I had another glass. Same story. The jug sat in the fridge for 2 weeks being ignored and last night I had another glass. Well, it had changed quite a bit and was milder and less sherbety than it had been. Rather delightful actually! Perhaps I brewed it too hot in my T2 iced tea jug initially? Not sure, I probably won’t purchase it again to find out though, 2 weeks is a bit longer than I like to brew my tea.

drank Chai by T2
1291 tasting notes

The Australian family that I’m housesitting for loves this chai so much, they had their eldest daughter bring back a few boxes with her, to Switzerland. So, I had to try it.

It smells divine, although it has really large bits and pieces, which I never really find appealing other than to smell – it’s hard to brew a whole cardamom pod or anise star with a tea and not have it overtake the entire cup. I found it… okay. Underwhelming. Didn’t really get much chai anything out of it, and wondered if perhaps I should have brewed it longer? Also though, and this is notable, there’s a ton of limescale here in the water, and I’m sure it’s affecting the taste.

Glad I tried it, doubt I’ll ever go out of my way to again though.

Flavors: Clove, Paper, Spices

Oh dear. Yeah, the water can make a huge difference to the tea.

MissB

Agreed. Sadly, it’s the norm here in Europe more than anything. I’ve bought a bottle of vinegar now in every place I’ve housesat.

OMGsrsly

Yes, boil the kettle, temporarily stink up the house. :) I wonder if there’s a portable water filter (like those filtering water bottles?) that would work on your water…

drank Red by T2

I prefer rooibos without all the extra flavours, so this is definitely the best I’ve tried so far. It’s so simplistic but so easy to drink, no matter what time of day it is. Apparently it tastes amazing iced, which I have no trouble believing, though I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet. Nothing fancy, just feels good to drink it!

drank China Jasmine by T2
3 tasting notes

This stuff is awesome. The dry leaves smell amazing, but the taste and scent of the infusion is nowhere near as strong, which is totally okay. This is probably the first loose leaf jasmine tea I’ve tried, so I can’t compare it to anything other than cheap teabags, but even without a comparison it’s easy to tell that this particular china jasmine is good quality. I’ve been able to get as many as three good infusions out of one scoop of leaves, which is great, because one cup never seems to be enough. And it tastes. so. good.

drank Hojicha Bancha by T2
3 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!

drank Melbourne Breakfast by T2

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!

Fjellrev

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
1901 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. :)

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

drank Toasty Warm by T2
242 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.

drank Melbourne Breakfast by T2
15 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

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.
