From T2

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.

Flavour: Caramel, Sweet, Vanilla

Strength: Medium

A sample from Miss B! Continuing the sweet theme this morning, I decided Creme Brulee was the only way to go after Terrific Toffee. What else could compete? I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. I added a splash of milk, mostly for fairness of comparison. It’s not so dark that I couldn’t drink it without.

To taste, this one is (if that’s possible) even sweeter than Terrific Toffee. It has strong vanilla custard vibes, with just a hint of caramel, and a rounded nuttiness that helps to bring the whole thing together. It is rather like a creme brulee in terms of taste, but it’s walking a fine line for me in terms of sweetness and sickly sweetness. It’s a truly excellent dessert tea, though, and a must-try for anyone with a sweet tooth. So many flavoured teas promise things they don’t deliver, but this one is a rare exception. Delicious, sweet, creamy creme brulee in a cup!

Another tea to try from MissB. Thank you!

This one isn’t bad, but I don’t think it’s as good as it probably once was. I’m enjoying it with milk, but even with a short 2 minute steep, it’s pretty astringent and a little bitter.

The caramel-vanilla flavours are excellent, and it smells really nice. But I don’t think this is a favourite.

This is one of my favourite T2 flavoured black teas. It can be drunk either on its own, with milk and sweetener (I use honey!) or as a mixing tea. I especially like to mix this one with T2’s Terrific Toffee or Toasty Nougat. It has caramel, nutty flavours with hints of black bitterness behind. This is a great ‘dessert’ tea. If you’re going to add milk I would suggest a soy or nut milk as it best compliments the flavours.

First tried this at the T2 store, which they provided as a sample. It was so beautiful that my boyfriend and I purchased it immediately!
As soon as we took it home and made it, however, it tasted extremely flat. We used the T2 Jug and steeped it for 3:45 (package recommends 2-4 minutes), but there was very little flavour when I sampled it. I steeped it for an extra minute, and it made the tea taste extremely flat – not even bitter, just flat. The smell of the tea is divine, but we can hardly taste anything!
I know it has the potential to be a beautiful tea, so I’ll follow the website recommendations in future: be a little more generous with the teaspoon serving, steep it for exactly 3 minutes and add honey. It sounds like it’s hard to get right, but going to keep trying!

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!


Of all the T2 teas, I think this is my favorite.


so far i’d have to agree, though the puerh was nice too… heh

The box recommends honey as a sweetener, but I disagree. Two parts white sugar, 1 part honey (use the amount you’d normally do, just eyeball amounts).

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.

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.

Yummy :)

I had very similar thoughts when first sampling this blend. However it’s now one of my all time favourites.

If caramel and hazelnuts were to have a tea baby with vanilla as Auntie, this would be that tea.
