From T2

A silky, decadent sweet treat. Velvety vanilla plays with caramelised hazelnuts in a gorgeously golden brew. An intense aroma enhances a refined and delicate infusion. Creamy and dreamy, this buttery caramel delight sings the song of after-dinner contentment.

1 teaspoon per 200mls, brew 2-3 minutes in water at 100 degrees Celsius.

Serve: With or without milk, a little drizzle of honey is heaven.

Flavour: Caramel, Sweet, Vanilla

Strength: Medium

I discovered this tea last year on the final day of my trip to Brisbane, Australia and immediately developed a crush. Creme Brûlées are my all time favourite dessert; so if not the name, the mouth watering scent certainly did the trick and I purchased with gusto.
The leaves have a beautiful rich darkness about them, complimented with the small pieces of hazelnut which create the loveliest contrast- leaving me absolutely ecstatic to try this as soon as I got it home.
Unfortunately the first cup I made was a disaster (too much milk, didn’t steep for long enough, etc) and I was left utterly disappointed and disheartened. Especially since I was somewhat of a novice at the time. For many months it made its way to the back of my cupboard untouched, until I had a clean out. By then I had been gifted a beautiful tea pot which never seemed to fail, so I went ahead and tried Creme Brulee again, making sure to follow the instructions precisely this time. This definitely solved the problem and I was in love all over again!
This tea is the embodiment of a perfect winter/autumn night, yet I find myself still enjoying it into the summer months. A perfect balance of sweet with a hint of nuttiness and when brewed correctly really does taste like the dessert itself. Again, this tea suggests honey as the sweetener, but I substitute for half a tsp of sugar since I’m not a honey fan. I’ve tried without either and while perfectly drinkable, a touch of added sweetness really brings all those wonderful flavours forward.
Moral of the story: Always give your teas a second chance to dazzle you!

Another from MissB i have to say this was was pretty pleasant. I think i like bayswater’s version just a little more, but not with a huge degree of conviction lol. This has got some great caramel/vanilla notes in it and even as it cooled it maintained that delicious taste. happy to have tried this one! thanks missb!


Of all the T2 teas, I think this is my favorite.


so far i’d have to agree, though the puerh was nice too… heh

The box recommends honey as a sweetener, but I disagree. Two parts white sugar, 1 part honey (use the amount you’d normally do, just eyeball amounts).

I love this tea. It smells so good in every sips I take. The taste of the caramel wasn’t strong but it still tastes good with a scent of vanilla & hazelnut. This would be in my favourite list. Added a little bit of honey, and the it tasted even better.

After trying this a few more times, I’ve decided that this is indeed, a very good tea. Not sure why I wasn’t enamoured by the sample, but since receiving a whole box of this as a gift from T2, I’ve been making it in my T2 flask to take to work a few times a week.
Aroma and mouthfeel are both of the creme brulee variety and this has been an enjoyable experience.

I’ve found that brewing for four minutes at a slightly lower temperature (as opposed to shorter steeping times in boiling) prevents the bitterness that others have mentioned in their notes.

Yummy :)

I had very similar thoughts when first sampling this blend. However it’s now one of my all time favourites.

If caramel and hazelnuts were to have a tea baby with vanilla as Auntie, this would be that tea.

Fantastic Tea. I was worried it would be too rich and sweet, but not at all. A great morning or afternoon tea. Not one you could drink all day, but essential for the shelf.

A good occasional tea, if you like sweet teas. It works quite lovely with cream and a teaspoon of sugar in the evening, but isn’t something I could have all the time.
You have to really like sweet tea though, and the steep time is really a hit-or-miss thing.
