Seeing a lot of negative reviews on this tea, however I think the issue is brew time. With all teas that don’t contain actual tea leaves (so not black/white/green) I brew them from a longer period of time to a) really let them infuse and b) get the most out of my tea. Coco Loco is purely coco husks, which is fantastic if you’re looking for a dairy free chocolate drink. It honestly does taste just like chocolate if you brew it this way, for at least ten minutes to really get the flavour to come out. This tea is great blended with others e.g. Yerba Mate, and I make it at home with T2 Chilli Kiss and frothed milk. I just love knowing I’m getting a delicious chocolate flavour without the sugar, dairy and added chemicals. Big thumbs up from me! :)
One day I thought it would be really great if there was a banana flavored black tea I could drink. Not banana-coconut, not banana-walnut, not bananas foster, just banana. I decided to try T2’s Banana Bake, even though it supposedly has a hazelnuts in it. Luckily, I detected nothing but banana and black tea, with a bit of creaminess to it. Looking back on all this, I realized what I was actually pining for was probably Butiki’s Hello Sweetie, a tea I was only able purchase once, and immediately fell in love with. A tea, also, that will most likely never be replicated. But that’s unfair to compare T2 to, a nice, but much lesser tea, more akin I think to David’s Tea. I very much enjoy this hot, really don’t want to have it iced, and I think it may just carry me into the Fall season with no problem. Just a nice, banana-y black, good with breakfast or if you’ve got a craving for a dessert type tea. It will have to do.
Flavors: Banana, Creamy
This tea is absolutely delectable; a vibrant, creamy hint of apricot, peach and plum, I was drawn to this smell again and again. I am an absolute sucker for sunflower petals and I love Rooibos tea, so this is an absolute winner.
Flavors: Apricot, Peach, Plums, Rooibos
This reminds me a bit of T2’s Strawberries and Cream, with a tangy, sour note, but with the added notes of cinnamon. I was a bit hesitant to try it but it’s lovely and sweet. The hibiscus is nice and it works so well with the cinnamon (which isn’t at all overpowering).
Flavors: Berry, Cinnamon, Hibiscus
This was my very first T2 tea! And I still absolutely love it- the unique coconut/pineapple combo is luxurious and balmy, all blended with the goodness of green tea leaves! Beautiful tea, great taste- a classic.
Flavors: Coconut, Green, Pineapple
Absolutely beautiful and tender; this tea really is dreamy (and slightly creamy), with a lovely combination of rose and cornflowers. There’s something irresistibly light about this tea, transporting the drinker to another place and time, and can be drunk in winter or summer, evenings or mornings.
Flavors: Lavender, Rose
This is one of my favourite teas at T2- it’s my go-to green tea blend. I absolutely love the sunflower and cornflower petals, plus the rose, all of which makes it a beautiful light, floral combination with such a unique taste. I’ll definitely be buying another box soon as I’m almost out!
Flavors: Floral, Rose
My favourite chai in the world, tied with Melbourne-based Prana Chai.
T2’s organic version tastes much better than the standard one. However, all my experience with this blend has been with packages produced before the Unilever takeover. (I feel like some of their products have gone down in quality since the takeover, probably for the Unilever profit margin.)
The flipside of that, is T2 expanding past Australia to become a global operation which means the rest of the world has one more giant offering. (If anything, T2 does have quite the range.)
Small saucepan, brewed stovetop for seven minutes on medium-high heat. 3 – 5 teaspoons of chai (depending on how cold the weather is..) with one cup cold water and one cup So Good Vanilla Soy Milk and 1/4tsp of New South Wales White Box Honey.
Only reason this doesn’t have a score of 100 is because I haven’t tasted it straight without any additions yet. But that’s because it is just simply too good the way I’ve always made it.
A good, dependable, if slightly underwhelming semi-fermented oolong.
Nose – Light. I get light stone fruit, floral notes and sugarcane. Very slight oolong butteryness and oats. Fairly characteristic of a ‘green oolong’.
Palate – Subtle and well balanced. Quite fresh and vibrant with light but lingering buttery sweetness with a touch of grassy zing. Handles three steepings, with a deeper, more vegetal flavour developing in the second steep and some of the more delicate notes dropping off by the third.
Colour – light golden green
Overall: Very pleasant but slightly unremarkable. A nice everyday drop and one for those who like their oolongs ‘green’.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Sugarcane
Got this tea in a sampler after my last order and GOSH IT IS SO BLIMMIN GOOD! Spicy, cinnamon, Orange peel sigh
Will definitely repurchase and I recommend to lovers of chai.

This tea was one of three limited edition christmas gift boxes so I was desperate to try it out. When I tested it in the shop, it had the perfect balance of fruit, the perfect icy cold temperature and the perfect strength. I immediately grabbed it as I was in a rush and tried it the next morning.
The first cup was alright I guess, but I didn’t get it as good as the people in t2. The other times I’ve had it its gotten worse and worse. It’s too watery, its too strong, it’s not balanced, it tasted like alcohol at some point. It wasn’t very nice.
I guess I’ve sort of neglected this tea. I haven’t tried it again in ages but I can be bothered, really. I wish it could taste like it did in t2 that day.
I also forgot to add that it tastes like cornflower. I have a thing about cornflowers in tea, i just don’t like it.
Flavors: Alcohol, Blackberry, Blueberry, Coconut, Oats
I’ve heard a mixture of negative and positive reviews about this tea and I thought I’d try it out to find my own opinion. some said that the smell was amazing but it was tasteless; others protesting that it was amazing, ticked all the boxes and couldn’t be better.
So heres my opinion.
When I opened the box the first thing was the smell. Chocolate. Coconut. Vanilla. I couldn’t possibly dream of anything better. When I was making the first cup I used my well loved T2 tea maker, like always. The smell of the tea was devine. When I took the first sip, I was a little disappointed. Yes, It was a little tasteless, but the second sip was different, it was just like what It smelt like – possibly even better. I kept on sipping; no more disappointments.
The only theory on the first sip is that I had such high expectations of it being amazing. I still have this tea and I savour every sip- trust me its good. the taste is a little fainter than the smell but altogether to die for. Will definitely repurchase this tea.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Coconut, Creamy, Vanilla
Beautiful light, smooth white tea. I re-brew this tea up to three times. Good to the last drop!
More expensive than other teas, but worth it. One of my absolute faves.
Tastes best paired with light, savoury foods, like a salad. Alternatively, perfect on its own.
Flavors: Earth, Nutty, Roasted, Wood
