I’m a newbie to more exotic tea drinking (until T2 came to Milton Keynes I drunk English Breakfast, earl grey and various herbals). I would never have considered drinking a creme brûlée tea as surely that is something rich, smooth and heavy more like a hot chocolate than a tea but I brewed it up from the 20 gem set and gave it a go. I don’t like milk in tea so decided to drink it black.
The smell is very Hazelnutty with a little caramel. The tea itself provided a nice background for the nutty vanilla and caramel flavours to come through. I found this really nice and relaxing. It’s not at all what I would have expected and I imagine that if you were into milky drinks it would work well with milk too. It was quite sweet and sugar was an ingredient so I’d need to check the calories before buying a it’ll cube of it but it was definitely a nice treat.
Flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut, Tea, Toffee, Vanilla
Ok. I drink tea black. I used to be a dash of milk girl but nobody seemed to understand the difference between a dash and shed load of milk so I started drinking weak black tea. I once tried a chai latte and found it horrid, to me a milky drink should be sweet and chocolatey not drowning out lovely aromatics. So I approached T2’s chai not expecting much. I had a tea bag from the 20 gems collection.
It said to serve with milk and honey but I decided to ignore the advice and after letting it steep for 2 minutes I had it with a tiny squirt of honey. Wow! Without any milk and foam fighting the aromatics it was lovely. It had a strong cardoman smell but when I tasted it it was sweet and soohing with a lovely spicy ginger and cinnamon taste.
I bet this would be amazing if you had a cold. Even the tiny bit of honey worked well. Very soothing and surprisingly nice.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger, Honey, Sweet, warm grass
Hmmm. This is my first ever jasmine tea which could be why I’m not enjoying as much as I do with teas I’m more familiar with.
The aroma is very strong (unsurprisingly!) the green tea flavours of melon and a final almost buttery base note come through when you taste it. It starts with a slightly spicy jasmine flavour and then mellows down a little. It’s nice enough but wouldn’t be my first choice of tea.
Flavors: Caramel, Jasmine, Melon, Spicy
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.
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.
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….
Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Hibiscus, Pineapple
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.

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.
Flavors: Apple, Honey, Sweet, Tart

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
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
