Had it again this morning—- I got the season sample packs which came with individual bags of single serving of tea. I noticed there was more nutmeg in the batch I got today. It was slightly bitter to me because of the nutmeg

It was nice smooth black tea with a little kick from the ginger. It was oddly comforting and warming in the morning. There was a slight bit of artificial taste in the first steering for the first few sips but it disappeared .

drank Matcha Jaffa Swirl by T2
36 tasting notes

This matcha reminds me Jaffa Cake. It is the liquid form of Jaffa cake but it is not matcha for sure. It has no matcha flavor. It doesn’t mix well and I would never use this product with my bamboo whisk. It is more of drink if you want it but it is nothing like matcha

drank Terrific Toffee by T2
670 tasting notes

This tea is definitely milder than I would guess based on the amount of nougat bits in the leaf. I wouldn’t really know what flavor it’s going for, but it’s decently tasty with milk and sugar. I probably wouldn’t want it often since it’s not very special or distinct. I would love a tea that tastes clearly of delicious toffee! This one is rather weak.

drank A Star Is Corn by T2

I put a ton of leaf in the cup, but even so, the brew turned out a bit weak, like murky dishwater. It’s better with milk. It mostly tastes like mild toastiness. The black tea is not very present. I love a toasty tea, but this is one of the weaker ones I’ve had. I haven’t loved any of the T2 teas I’ve tried. Yet I still made an order yesterday when they were having a sale. I am weak. Like this tea.

drank Choc Chip Chai by T2

From the Samurai TTB.

Believe it or not, one of my favorite chai blends is a tea bag from Celestial Seasonings. Someone left a box of it at work and I found myself drinking it daily until I finished it off. I haven’t been able to find it since. Opening this bag of chai, the aroma took me back to that favorite tea and so I’m hopeful I’ve found a similar blend here.

This didn’t take milk as well as I would have liked, it’s a little thin, but the spices are solid. Just the right blend. I love a clove-heavy chai, which surprises even me. Curiously, I’m not tasting any chocolate. I don’t mind it really since the other flavors come through for a perfectly acceptable (delicious, really) chai, but with chocolate chips in the name I do think I should be able to taste it. I never would have guessed this had any chocolate at all if not for the name and description.

I’ve seen this one a lot on Steepster, so I’m glad tea-sipper put it in the box for us to try.

Another one from the tea box – thanks everyone for contributing! This chai is pretty tasty. It doesn’t even need milk! The black tea is pretty weak, but I don’t mind too much since the spice blend is strong and tasty – I feel like cloves and cardamom are the most prominent flavors. I did overleaf this one, so maybe that helped with the flavor. I had the second steep with milk, which was also quite tasty. I tasted the anise more in the second steep, but it worked well with the other spices. I don’t know that it’s special enough to choose over other chais, but I had a perfectly nice time drinking it. Also, I didn’t taste a single bit of chocolate in either steep. The spices definitely take over .

I’m glad this was enjoyable enough. :D

drank Turkish Apple by T2
24 tasting notes

Powdered Sugar… and some artificial flavour. That’s it. That’s the tea. I worked at T2 for 5 years and it was recommended we never openly explained to customers what this was. It was also a coincidence that so many of the iced tea “combos” that we had on tasting were a combo with Turkish Apple or Cherry. Any fruit tisane tastes good with an entire pack of Turkish Apple (250g sugar) dumped in it.

Currently sipping this while on a very dry conference call…

I’m finding this a little over steeped because there’s a slight bitterness to the cup, but the flavour is still ultimately smooth and creamy vanilla with a bakey bread undertone so it’s still a nice classic and bold cup. Perfect for the day!

drank London Breakfast by T2

I’m slowly drinking through the breakfast assortment that I got during a post-holiday sale at T2, and this is one of the last flavors. It’s just okay. A mildly smokey black tea, but nothing really to write home about.

drank Watermelon Sorbet by T2
670 tasting notes

The flavor here is milder than I’d prefer. It’s a bit more herbaceous and minty, but not the clear, bright mint I love. Not really watermelon at all. Sometimes I get some light fruitiness. It requires a short brew in order to not get murky and weird. I’ve made it probably five times now, and it’s never delicious, just something I’m drinking because I need my four ounces of it to disappear.

drank Sydney Breakfast by T2

A perfectly fine, but somewhat average earl grey. I haven’t been enjoying earl greys as much as I used to. I think I burned myself out on them during my first couple years of intense tea drinking. I found this one to not have enough bergamot, the base was a bit too strong for the flavor.

drank Brisbane Breakfast by T2

This was a perfectly fine tropical fruit black tea. I enjoyed my cup, but it was a generally average cup of black tea with fruit. The mango flavor wasn’t too prominent, and came across as more vaguely tropical than anything.

Dropping my rating a bit, as the artificial note came off as MUCH more strong this time around.

I’ve been really gravitating toward the simplicity of vanilla black teas lately. This one does have a bit of an artificial note, but not overwhelmingly so. I enjoyed this with some oat milk and sugar.

drank Gorgeous Geisha by T2

This always seems like it should be a full-on pure green tea, from the name, but it’s a total strawberry pudding. With milk it’s a bit like a strawberry blancmange, it’s also great with honey/sugar or just plain. If you’re green tea averse or find green teas bitter, give this a go.

Flavors: Strawberry

Brilliant chai: warm, rich, sweet flavours. Great with honey or milk, or even by itself given the sweetness from the dates.

Superb! Very sweet and pancakey, with a hit of cinnamon, and I can drink this one black without milk or honey/sugar, as it’s really mellow and smooth. This was the standout for me in the Advent Calendar a couple of years ago, and I went on to buy a whole box of it (the teabags). Highly recommended.

Flavors: Cinnamon

This is a mega-popcorny genmaicha with coconut notes, and one of the few green teas I can drink without milk and unsweetened. I particularly enjoy this when fasting.

Flavors: Coconut, Popcorn

drank Christmas Breakfast by T2

I love this: it’s more of a chai than a tea, though the flavour may vary slightly between boxes. The sample I had in the Advent calendar was much more nutmeggy than the boxes I later bought. The nutmeg was a really welcome and unusual flavour so I would love it to be stronger. Definitely one to grab when it comes around again at Christmas.

Flavors: Nutmeg

Amazing chai. I’ve had it in the Advent Calendar a couple of times, and for people that find other chais too heavy/clovey, give this one a try. It’s much more gentle but also an exciting combination of flavours.

drank Pumping Pomegranate by T2

This is not really my sort of tea: it’s too much of a tangy hibiscus flavour. It is a beautiful colour. T2 often have it blended with another tea as a tasting sample, and that tends to be better (eg Turkish Cherry). It is a beautiful colour. For people who like hibiscus, this will be a great choice. Cold and sweetened would probably work well.

Flavors: Hibiscus
