Delicious. This was a change from my usual T2 Melbourne Breakfast, but the concept of vanilla & cinnamon intrigued me. And it was a good choice! The pancakes impression is seriously strong. If I didn’t know that I was supposed to be tasting cinnamon, I’m not sure I’d identify it as such, so if you’re not a fan of that flavour in your tea, I wouldn’t worry. I’m not sure this will make it onto my “must always have available” shortlist, but I’m definitely going to enjoy it while I have it. Buttery, maple, and cosy.

Flavors: Brown Toast, Butter, Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Vanilla

Love this tea. Not just for winter, this tea is good all year around. It’s like all the bite-y flavours from chai without the aromatics, and for me, without feeling the need to add honey. Pepper and cinnamon, with just the right ginger kick kick.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Pepper

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

One of my favourite tea bag teas. This tea needs (and stands up to) a fairly long brewing time to get the full depth of flavour – I usually steep for a good 5 minutes. This brings out a well balanced spice to tea ratio, which when coupled with a teaspoon of honey and a goodly splash of milk, is enough to save even the most stressful of afternoons.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cloves, Fennel, Nutmeg, Pepper

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

drank Turkish Apple by T2

Very tasty, but then, it’s basically apple flavoured sugar dissolved in hot water. Delicious hot, but also amazing to sweeten iced tea.

…also a fantastic rimming sugar for making cocktails!

A sleepy tea that actually tastes great! I can’t comment on its effectiveness in aiding sleep, but it’s certainly soothing to drink. Very pleasant with honey.

Not the best Monk Pear on the market, but not the worst. A nice variation on earl grey flavours, the jasmine really gives it a lift.

Flavors: Floral, Jasmine

A pleasant but unexciting tea. Needs to be brewed quite strong, or it can tend towards being a bit insipid.

Flavors: Vanilla

Preparation

Tried this tea hot & cold, and iced is the only way to go. I found it really quite medicinal when served hot, but as an iced tea it really is delicious and refreshing.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
