drank Madagascan Vanilla by T2

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

Flavors: Vanilla

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

drank Lemongrass & Ginger by T2

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

drank French Earl Grey by T2

This is my favourite Earl Grey at the moment, but be warned, it’s quite fruity. Medium bodied, it’s a good tasty cuppa.

drank Creme Brulee by T2
18 tasting notes

A bit hit-and-miss, this tea is either amazing or meh. I think the more recent batches have been heavier on the sweet aspect, without toning up the associated flavours, which possibly went a bit too far. Used to be my favourite T2 dessert tea, but the Caramel Brownie is a much more interesting & reliable option. This one needs to be brewed quite strong.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Burnt Sugar, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Cocoa Loco Mint by T2
18 tasting notes

Bleurgh. What a disappointment. Smells fantastic, like an after-dinner mint, tastes watery and insipid. Maybe it could be saved by being blended with a robust dessert tea, but on its own I couldn’t drink it, with or without milk.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Spearmint

Disappointing. Smells great, love the idea, but did not deliver. Quite insipid, even when brewed strong. Might be good as an added extra for something like the T2 Melbourne Breakfast, but on its own I’m not convinced.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Orange

drank Choc Chip Chai by T2
18 tasting notes

My favourite T2 tea. The right amount of spice, and chocolate-y without being sweet in and of itself. Of course, being chai, I tend to add honey to it. Quite robust, this tea is a fantastic pick-me-up.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Pepper

Boiling 3 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Caramel Brownie by T2
18 tasting notes

Love love love this tea. It’s very sweet, however, so more of a dessert tea than an every day tea. Great with milk, I am told it is also very nice on its own. I find I want this quite strong, otherwise it’s a bit underwhelming and just generically sweet.

Flavors: Almond, Caramel, Chocolate, Vanilla

Preparation

So-so. Smells great, a bit lacklustre in performance. Wouldn’t buy, but was very glad to get a sample, because otherwise I might have.

Flavors: Earl Grey, Flowers, Mint

drank Apple Crumble by T2
18 tasting notes

I was expecting a lot from this tea, and sadly it didn’t deliver. It smells divine, but that didn’t come through in the tea. Vaguely apple, vaguely cinnamon, but nothing special. I am optimistic that it might perform better as an iced tea – which is what I will likely do with the remainder.

Flavors: Apple, Apple Candy, Cinnamon

drank Melbourne Breakfast by T2
18 tasting notes

I really like this, and having drunk my way through almost 100g of it in a fortnight, now fully intend to buy the largest available quantity, and possibly in teabag form too, for work. I’m not a huge fan of overly smoky teas, but the slight smokiness in this is a great offset to the sweetness – which is also not over the top. Makes me think of sipping a hot cocoa in front of a fire. Cosy & comforting, this is currently my go-to cuppa.

Flavors: Cocoa, Honey, Smoke, Vanilla

drank Gorgeous Geisha by T2

So good! In the bag this has a tangy fresh strawberry smell from the freeze dried pieces but after a couple of minutes brewing the smell and flavour is very mellow and creamy, like a strawberry icecream. I find nearly all tea relaxing but this one is really nice and comforting.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 1 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

drank Geisha Getaway by T2
9 tasting notes

Ethics tea has a strong coconut smell, very sweet and mellow. My little boy said it smelled like chocolate, maybe meaning a bounty bar!

It tastes of coconut and then green tea with a hint of something sharp and refreshing (maybe the pineapple but to me it tastes more like a hint of melon. It’s nice and light, something you could drink after a big meal.

It definitely made me think of a tropical island and wasn’t over caffeinated.

Flavors: Coconut, Green, Melon

drank Creme Brulee by T2
9 tasting notes

I’m a newbie to more exotic tea drinking (until T2 came to Milton Keynes I drunk English Breakfast, earl grey and various herbals). I would never have considered drinking a creme brûlée tea as surely that is something rich, smooth and heavy more like a hot chocolate than a tea but I brewed it up from the 20 gem set and gave it a go. I don’t like milk in tea so decided to drink it black.

The smell is very Hazelnutty with a little caramel. The tea itself provided a nice background for the nutty vanilla and caramel flavours to come through. I found this really nice and relaxing. It’s not at all what I would have expected and I imagine that if you were into milky drinks it would work well with milk too. It was quite sweet and sugar was an ingredient so I’d need to check the calories before buying a it’ll cube of it but it was definitely a nice treat.

Flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut, Tea, Toffee, Vanilla

drank Chai by T2
9 tasting notes

Ok. I drink tea black. I used to be a dash of milk girl but nobody seemed to understand the difference between a dash and shed load of milk so I started drinking weak black tea. I once tried a chai latte and found it horrid, to me a milky drink should be sweet and chocolatey not drowning out lovely aromatics. So I approached T2’s chai not expecting much. I had a tea bag from the 20 gems collection.

It said to serve with milk and honey but I decided to ignore the advice and after letting it steep for 2 minutes I had it with a tiny squirt of honey. Wow! Without any milk and foam fighting the aromatics it was lovely. It had a strong cardoman smell but when I tasted it it was sweet and soohing with a lovely spicy ginger and cinnamon taste.

I bet this would be amazing if you had a cold. Even the tiny bit of honey worked well. Very soothing and surprisingly nice.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger, Honey, Sweet, warm grass

Hmmm. This is my first ever jasmine tea which could be why I’m not enjoying as much as I do with teas I’m more familiar with.

The aroma is very strong (unsurprisingly!) the green tea flavours of melon and a final almost buttery base note come through when you taste it. It starts with a slightly spicy jasmine flavour and then mellows down a little. It’s nice enough but wouldn’t be my first choice of tea.

Flavors: Caramel, Jasmine, Melon, Spicy

I love this tea! The fresh fruit and floral flavours work so well with the traditional earl grey mix. I find it refreshing and a really great balance of flavours.

drank Grand Yunnan by T2

I am not impressed at all with this tea. None of the smokiness comes through, and the maltiness is weak too. Overall a pretty flat tea.
In my opinion (but I could be wrong here), the dry leaves already reveal that this is not a great tea. They are far too orangey. This tea is supposed to have a few golden buds, whereas here most of the leaves are orange – not a good sign in my view.
