This is a fresh, bright black tea with a strong mango flavor. It’s a nice, quality black tea that’s strong without being bitter and the mango compliments it very well. It goes well with milk, but I could also see this being an excellent iced tea. This is my introduction to T2 tea and it’s very nice. I was told (by the person who gave me the tea as a gift) that T2 is like the Teavana of Australia.
And there goes the last of it! It was nice knowing you, Sencha Sprinkles, but I don’t feel as though I must restock you.
This stuff is my JAM. Favourite flavoured green at the moment. I’m drinking it at home and at work, hot and iced. Nothing will stop my love for this blend.
This one’s sneaking up on my favourite of the three mother’s day 2013 teas from T2. I’m really enjoying the combination of flavours and I’m thinking about brewing it up with some white white cocoa today, or maybe some geisha getaway, for a little bit of added sweetness. Lovely. Don’t steep too long.
A friend brought me this tea from his visit to Melbourne, and this is one of the most delicious breakfast teas I’ve had! The light smokiness from the yunnan is a lovely balance to the sweetness. It’s a great milk tea, but it’s so rich and just sweet enough that I don’t NEED the milk. This is a revelation – breakfast tea without milk!
I’m sad that I’ve only the one box. :(
I bought this tea recently to break my previously formed impression of all LongJing tea (I had had a particularly unpleasant experience with it from a different supplier – the reason presumably was that it had not been stored well at all.
This LongJing from T2 was much more pleasant.
The first tea session’s brew was a little weak (I had only put in 1 1/2 teaspoons for the 600ml pot) and had left it to steep for about 1min 20sec.
The second session I put in a full 2 (Chinese) teaspoons and brewed for ~1.5 minutes.
Although the overall outcome was better, I will try it again brewing to 2 minutes.
Both brews were with water that had been taken off the element as soon as bubbles began breaking the surface (would that be ~75ish degrees Celsius?).
It had a nice rounded mouth-feel that lingered pleasantly. I was impressed with how the tea blended with the water: It was like the two had completely become one (as opposed to other brews I have had that have been quite insipid or unbalanced).
The flavour I could only describe as a nutty grassy taste, perhaps with a bit of a mildly roasted sensation. I’m sure if I had eaten more vegetables and smelt more flowers in my lifetime I would have a better lexicon for this (future goal?). In summary, very nice flavour.
I couldn’t get much from the aroma. There were hints of the lightly roasted nutty flavours I had experienced in the drinking, but only from the pot. When trying to make out the fragrance of the tea in my (tiny Chinese gongfu) cup, I often found myself accidentally dunking my nose in the tea due to lack of fragrance.
Perhaps it can be said of this tea that the fragrance is mild yet compelling?
I was very happy with this tea. Thank you T2 for restoring my faith in the Dragons of the Well.
Aw, here’s the last of this for a while… I think I’ll wait until autumn to restock a pu-erh, though I wonder if I’ll miss it! This has been so delicious right through three steeps each scoop.
There is no way that this tea was really a Gyokuro. It didn’t even taste like it was Japanese! Broken leaves made me question if this was half-way to becoming a Matcha, but really it was just T2 over-charging for a low-grade sencha.
I was a little disappointed when I tried this tea from T2. While I love Jasmine Pearls this one had a faint chemically aroma, and the tea tasted flat. It might just be the shop I bought it from was outside the CBD so might have done less business. Or it could have been the water. Either way though T2, in my opinion, has priced this tea a tad bit too much.
