drank White White Cocoa by T2
4 tasting notes

T2 recommend “2 to 4 minutes at 90 degrees”.
I tend to like my teas strong, so I went for 4 minutes… and it was a bit too long, or perhaps the temperature was a bit too high. Either way, next time I’m going to reduce both slightly.

Had it straight as this one should be, but it could have done with a drop of milk – but that’s probably just because it brewed too long!

A little bit of sweetness, and a great nose on it.
Better after it’s cooled just a little, as this lets the flavours come through.

drank Ning Hong Jing Hao by T2

A lovely, full-bodied-but-subtle tea. Warming and wintery. This ‘premium grade Chinese Keemun’ black tea was the perfect thing to get me into the working day after a freezing dawn surf!

Aroma: Subtle woody smoke and roast capsicum. Iodine and a hint of pine needle. Some fleeting stone fruit.

Palate: A complex but subtle mix of wood, smoke and earth – which sounds overpowering but is anything but in this tea (and perhaps due to my short steeping time). Light but lingering rose petal and lychee notes and a delicate sweetness. This tea has a nice depth without being tannic, and a great balance of deep and floral characteristics. Second steeping (1min 30sec @ 100*c) is still nicely balanced but loses some of the complexity and floral notes, with woodiness predominating.

Overall: This tea has all the attributes I love in a Chinese black tea: the subtle dark cloak of smokiness, wood and earth, giving way to a bouquet of floral fruity notes. The floral and fruity notes are admittedly less pronounced than other premium Chinese black teas in this style. Not the most outstanding tea of this style, but remarkably elegant tea for the price. A great find!

Thanks to MissB for this one a while back! This certainly tastes like something sweet on a light black tea. It is mostly a buttery toffee, or honey or SOMETHING sweet. Definitely one I’ll reach for when I want a sweet tea. Resteeps even better.

Hello again my beautiful delicious angel! It’s a cold, rainy night and I’ve just restocked this blend so it’s absolutely the time for a big ol’ mug of it. YUM.

I’ve got so much writing to do for NaNoWriMo and a lot of procrastinating has been done. I’m going to see how much I can push myself to pump out this week and we’ll see if I can’t still do it. I am still really into my idea, it’s just pushing the words out that I’m struggling with a bit. Or am I? Maybe I’m just really procrastinating.

Some of this dreamboat for breakfast/lunch while completing day two of NaNoWriMo! I’m almost out but I don’t think I’m ready to accept being out of this so I’ll restock it next week at the T2 Tea Society event (where I’ll get 15% off, yes thanks).

Still so good. Woke up too early this morning so made myself a mug and crawled back into bed with it.

Couldn’t walk past this again tonight… twice. Took some out pokehunting in my timolino, then had another mug in bed when I got home. ¯\(ツ)/¯ I’m gonna run out of this before all the other stuff in my pantry that’s been open for months, aren’t I?

I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS TEA, HELP!!!

Seeing as I won’t be making it up to the Sydney Tea Festival this weekend after all, I decided to treat myself to a box of this blend. Where was I when it came out in that lovely limited edition tin? Never mind, I first tasted it in an orange box in store back in June and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Milk and sugar and this is a sweet dessert chai wonderland. Utterly delicious. I’m literally lying in bed with a big pot of it right next to me as I type. YUM.

(The only thing is that there’s a strange oil slick on the surface of the tea. Can anyone tell me what could cause that?)

drank Oolong Dan Cong by T2
28 tasting notes

A fairly oxidated dark oolong from T2 that produces a wholly savoury experience.

Aroma: Woody with burnt toffee and pine cone notes.

Palate: The dominant flavour is a strong ‘woodyness’ with earthy notes and soft tannins. Some light chocolate flavours linger in the mouth, yet this tea has very little sweetness.

Overall: Not one of my favorites. I prefer my dark oolongs with delicate, floral or fruitcake notes. I would possibly prefer this a little less steeped, but I still think it lacks the delicate complexity I’m after. Good for two steeps or three if steeped for a shorter time (I’d usually expect a third or fourth from a top oolong). All in all not a ‘flawed’ tea by any stretch, but not one that suits my palate and not one that I’ll be reaching for again.

Flavors: Caramel, Pine, Smoke, Wood

Absolutely gorgeous and uplifting tea, due to the ginger and pepper a little goes a long way. As with most teas that doesn’t contain actual tea leaves (i.e. herbal, rooibos, fruit tisane, etc.) it’s a good idea to use a little less but leave it steep for longer. Great with honey and lemon for when you have a sore throat, or mixed with a fruity tea to balance out that spicy ginger and pepper.

The T2 matcha is of a surprisingly good quality, and I enjoy it iced with lots of fresh lemon and maybe even a dash of soda or sparkling water, or hot with vanilla soy milk or any vegan milk with maple syrup. Really does need to be prepared properly, as will all matcha- whisked with 80 degree © water.
