8 Tasting Notes

drank Winter by T2
8 tasting notes

This tea really warms you up from the inside out. It’s the perfect balance – just enough ginger, just enough cinnamon, just enough tea. Perfect on cold nights (or anytime, really) with a hint of honey if you need it sweeter. Drink it while sitting on your couch in a knitted sweater, under a snuggly blanket, watching your favourite film. Amazing to drink while listening to Bon Iver.

Quite a strong chai tea – I don’t like tea with milk so I brew this black, which means it’s probably stronger for me but unlike some other chai teas, this one actually has whole pieces of spices such as star anise and cinnamon, which makes it seem oh-so authentic. It’s a beautiful blend of spices, and quite nice sweetened with a bit of honey or some raw sugar. Brew with boiling water to get the full flavour.

This tea looks amazing, and tastes even better than it smells if a bit of honey is added. Lovely.

drank Chamomile & Lavender by T2
8 tasting notes

Exactly what it says on the box – chamomile and lavender flowers, no fancy business. The lavender really brings out the delicate aroma of the chamomile, making it smell and taste soothing and delicious. I created a herbal blend using this tea and Just Rose (also from T2) which is the perfect before bed tea – relaxing, pleasantly fragrant and soothing. Quite nice with a hint of honey (lavender honey is best).

drank Really Russian Caravan by T2
8 tasting notes

An absolutely incredible tea. It smells and tastes like woodsmoke and forests, but unlike some smoky teas it isn’t at all bitter. Opening the tin is quite literally like walking towards a bonfire. Delicious on cold mornings – it really warms you up! Steep for just over 3 minutes with just-boiled water.

drank French Earl Grey by T2

A beautiful, medium/light fruity Earl Grey with hints of peach and citrus. The sunflower blossoms and rose petals complement the mallow flowers perfectly, producing an incredibly delicate and delicious tea. It’s my current favourite.
