SERIOUSLY T2 WHY DID THIS GLORIOUS BEAST NOT GET ADDED TO THE STANDARD LINE. I’m still horrified. I finally deigned to open my precious saved box of this the other day (I really AM sipping down the cupboard, yikes!) and was a little worried that it wouldn’t be as great as I remembered (happens a bit).

NOPE.

Still fabulous and amazing and I want to never run out but I’m SAD BECAUSE ONE DAY I WILL.

Have already had this hot (YUM) and have a whole 2L cold brewed jug too.

Close to a sipdown for this! One cup left now. And I’ve realised I don’t have that many straight blacks in the cupboard… only a couple of those to go and I’ll have to restock one.

I drank a delicious pot of this today. I can’t imagine preparing it any other way than on the stove. I never want to run out of it.

Happily drank down the last of this tonight, knowing that more can be obtained in the future if need be. Ah, the joy of a limited edition tea blend being added to the standard range.

drank Blackberry by The Art of Tea

Right, I’ve been through a 50g box of this now and I’ve gotta say, I’m a fan. Very nice. Just sweet enough to not need sugar(no sugar, no, makes it crazy sweet, big mistake) and what I discovered with the very last of the box today is that a 24hr cold brew tastes amazing with a shot of gin. So that’s a win for me. Done. I’m sold. Restocking this next time I do an Art of Tea shop.

MY TEASTORY:

Grandad got me started young, white (a LOT of white) Irish breakfast with two.

I never strayed far from that until the world of T2 Tea came to Brisbane some years ago, and now I don’t know what I’d do without a pantry full of tea options.

These days I prefer to drink my teas straight without sweetener (though I appreciate some black variations shine better with milk and/or a dash of honey/sugar). I also love a speedy iced tea (hot brewed then poured over ice), and my latest obsession is cold brewing (which doesn’t make a lot of sense, as Australia is headed into winter and I live in the coldest corner of the country, but oh well).

I’d love to make a bunch of tea friends on here, especially those who can talk Aussie teas with me. I’ve recently come back from a jaunt to North America and it was a real hoot to hit up DAVIDsTEA after reading so many reviews! I wish I’d had the chance to get to more stores… but I’m happy with what I got back past customs. See those teas and my local jams in my reviews.

I LOVE:
+ black teas
+ white teas
+ oolongs
+ flavoured versions of all three of the above
+ herbal infusions and fruit tisanes

NOT A FAN:
+ most green teas
+ LICORICE ROOT (my sworn enemy) and aniseed flavours
