From T2

Terrific? What’s not to love about T2’s caramelly carnival of rapture in a cup. A winning combination of black tea, with nutty nougat makes for a toffee tea treat like no other. It’s a sweet pick-me-up to get you through a long afternoon, or a saintly alternative for sweet-toothed chocolate addicts. Lush just as it is, or add milk for an even creamier and dreamier brew.

Brew:1 teaspoon per 200mls. Brew 2 – 3 minutes in water at 100 degrees Celsius.

Serve: Hot.

Ingredients: Black tea, nougat bits (sugar, glycose syrup, almonds, honey, egg white, natural vanilla) and flavour. CONTAINS EGG AND NUTS (ALMOND)

Enjoy: With milk if desired.

Sunday mornings are busy with getting the family ready for church, but tea is still a necessity. This was one of the teas that started me on the tea lover’s path. Made with milk and honey, it’s just a sweet, easy, no-thinking-required tea. But it’s actually been two or three weeks since I’ve had this one because I’ve been so involved with sampling new teas, primarily premium “straight” teas. So, sadly, this feels thin today. I’m enjoying it enough, but I suppose I can expect my senses to develop like this so that I kind of “grow out of” some of these teas. That definitely doesn’t mean that I won’t make it again. I could never discount a tea, especially an old favourite, because it just didn’t stand up on a single occasion!

Edited to add: Ok, it has been a little bit of time since I last made this. I obviously forgot how little milk I used to add. Fixed that on this last cup. Much better, can taste the tea more now, and back to not having to think about it. The way a Sunday morning should be.

Beautiful and subtle. First cup was made a little weak so be careful with the amount of milk.

So this tea really smells amazing. It smells like toffee but there is also almost a candied cherry smell lingering somewhere in there too. It also tastes quite like it smells which is definitely a good thing.

Its quite strong tasting, which is what i like in a sweet, creamy tasting tea. Im really enjoying this.

I’m down to my last scoop of Terrific Toffee, and can’t bring myself to use it. I prepare it with a dash of milk, preferably Vanilla Soy Milk, and a generous helping of honey, yet I find that it lacks depth. The toffee flavour is so subtle that it can be hard to pick up on it, yet like most flavoured black teas, if it is brewed for too long, the black tea will overpower the flavour anyway and can result in a bitter brew.

I don’t know if I steeped this for long enough (just over 3 minutes in 100C water); I could smell the vanilla and toffee but the flavours were muted upon drinking (dash of milk added after steeping). This tea is OK but there are others I would choose over this.

Thanks to MissB for this one a while back! This certainly tastes like something sweet on a light black tea. It is mostly a buttery toffee, or honey or SOMETHING sweet. Definitely one I’ll reach for when I want a sweet tea. Resteeps even better.

A sample from Miss B! This one is my mid-morning cup, and it’s totally delicious. It’s almost worth being awake and at work just so that I can be drinking this one. I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. I added a splash of milk, just because it’s that kind of morning. The brewed tea smells deliciously of cake – sweet, rich, vanilla. To taste, it’s definitely toffee with a touch of creamy, nutty nougat. It has that delicious caramelised, burnt sugar sweetness with a glorious fudgey undertone, and tastes like it should be sticky. It’s pretty sweet – almost a little too much – but it’s so spot-on flavour accurate that I don’t care for the moment. This one really is terrific!

They were having a special at T2, so I got a 3.5 oz. package of Terrific Toffee for free when I purchased their Jade Mountain. Pretty nice giveaway, I’d say. Dry leaf smells sweet, not quite like pastry, not quite the caramel I expected, but more like cake. Yep, cake. How can you not love that? Brewed, and with milk, I get more of the creamy vanilla with a slight buttery taste. Butter cake! Or maybe yellow cake batter. The aroma is definitely like a vanilla cupcake. Quite yum. I have been known to oversteep my flavored blacks, and this one was no exception, but it was all good, no bitterness or bite at all. I even overleafed just a little bit (1.5 tsp per cup). I get the feeling if I played by the rules and brewed it according to the instructions, it would have been too weak. A very nice dessert tea (but I had this one with breakfast).

Flavors: Butter, Cake, Cream, Sugar, Vanilla


LOVE Jade Mountain!

I have to admit, the name of this tea drew me to it, above many other of the brightly packaged boxes on T2’s wall. However, after one overpowering whiff of the sample, I recoiled. It seemed to be just too much. Although I can enjoy sweet teas, I assumed this one would be too syrupy and it reminded me of other cake or cookie-inspired teas that I’ve tried and disliked in the past.

I was almost dreading trying this tea in my flavored black tea sampler, but it was next in line, so I prepared to meet my fate today. I could not have been more wrong! Although definitely on the sweeter side, it is just what I needed to get me going on this Thursday. It also reminds me of O Canada! from David’s tea, but with caffeine!
