Found a way to boost two teas I wasn’t overwhelmed by… add them together! A scoop of this with a scoop of vanilla slice and I’m quite happy to drink my way through these.

Hahaha, straight away I suspected the licorice root. Ruining everything wonderful. Damnit.

Ok, I guess it isn’t awful in this blend. It’s not obnoxious.

I still prefer my darling Gone Surfing but this is a nice bedtime tea too. Ok, you can stay.

Just the faintest hint of vanilla (moreso on the nose than the tongue), an ok breakfast tea. I’m not blown away, I prefer some of the other breakfast teas far more.

I continue to enjoy this one, enough so that I threw some of it into a jar to take into work. Lovely mellow black with just a touch of peach sweetness and just a touch of ginger bite. Yum.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Toasty Nougat by T2

Right, I went back in for round 2 with this guy this evening, using some of my cherished Blueberry Blush to complete this recipe: http://www.t2tea.com/recipes/blue-nougat-2/ but at a one-cup scale, so I had a heaped BB and around 3/4 TN.

Still not winning me over. Something bad-tart came out in this mix.

As it’s cooling it’s becoming a lot more palatable but the recipe has it served hot, so I did what I was told. No sweetener either—I can only imagine how much more bad-tart this would have turned with the addition of some lemon as recipe-suggested!

Two more recipes/chances, Toasty Nougat.

Andrea Stephens

I found toasty Nougart a complete letdown unless it was iced & even then the quantity you needed to use was kind of outrageous for what was essentially a “mixer”. in the end i divided the rest of my box between toasty oolong and my chai mix. I was a bit surprised that they had recently upgraded TN to “the big tin” along with the likes of Geisha Getaway, Terrific Toffee. Someone must be using it and loving it…

Memily

Very weird that it’s in the big tin! I’m gonna try the other two recipes from the website and also try it iced, though it’s a bit silly that a blend called “toasty” is better iced. Tsk. Such a shame because it SMELLS divine.

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
