I love this tea! Although, anything from T2 is incredibly overpriced!
It’s simple and delicious and provides that caffeine boost to start the day!

“Favourite flavoured black tea by far, more like a dessert, caramel and vanilla distinctive but not over powering” Read full tasting note
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.

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!
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.
Flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut, Honey
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.
