From T2

Description:
Mmmm…Earthy and delightfully nutty, this golden tea is warming, tangy and simply devine. A black tea base is spiced with Australian wattleseed, ground cinnamon and vanilla, this tea can be enjoyed on its own or add a dash of milk for a creamier brew.

Brew:
1 tsp per 250ml, brew 2-4 mins in water at 100c

Serve:
Perfect on its own or with a dash of milk if desired

thank you Alice This was one of the teas that Alice sent my way in our swap. I opted to try this one first out of the bunch she sent me because it was a nice small sample – i suspect this is how T2 sends samples with their orders. I’ve also never had wattleseed ever.

I really like this Alice! It’s an interesting blend that reminds me almost of waffles, though i’m not entirely sure if that’s because wattle and waffle look similar or it’s from the cinnamon and wattle seed. There’s a baked good sort of quality about this while still holding on to it’s black tea base. It’s not baked good like brioche for example..it’s that hint of bread like goodness. Overall quite pleased with this one! thanks alice!

Courtney

Waffles, yum!

Woo good to know. I almost bought a whole box so I could try it myself but then the sales person offered to give me a take home sample so I went with that. Maybe I should buy a box. It looks to me like they use an Australian black tea base too.

T2 were bought out by unilever about a month ago so they might find their way to the US soon, who knows!

alice

Oops forgot that you are in Canada and not the US, they might turn up in Canada too who knows. They are an interesting brand with really sleek packaging and stores. I could see them being popular internationally.

Sil

Even if they managed to expand to the US that would be good enough :)

Different and a lot smoother breakfast tea than others I have come across. Tea has a aromatic scent, slightly reminds me of baked apples. Vanilla and cinnamon really kick in at the end.

Sample sipdown!

Many years ago I visited the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. They had this quaint little ice-cream shop with Aussie bush tucker flavours like wattleseed, quandong, lemon myrtle and even emu.
Wasn’t game enough for emu ice-cream but I happily tried the wattleseed and haven’t had a frozen dessert so lovely since.

This is such an underrated T2 blend. Didn’t even know it existed until it popped up on Steepster. It tastes like waffles and sweet cinnamon and of course, wattleseed, which has that specific nuttiness unique to the Australian wattle tree. This will be a definite purchase.

Heading back to the Blue Mountains in a couple of weeks. Maybe this time I’ll be brave enough for the emu ice-cream.

Sounds intriguing. I’ve never even heard of a wattle tree, but now I’m curious!

Well I’ve heard of duck fat ice cream, so maybe it’s a similar thing? :P

And this tea sounds awesome!

Sami Kelsh put this on my radar and I’m so grateful—I grabbed a sample of it last time I was in store thanks to her rave tasting note, and I’ve had it with a dollop of milk for dessert twice.

Yum.

With a bit of choc chip shortbread, this was dreamy. A lovely black flavoured tea that I’ve managed to overlook in all my years of T2 drinking, huh!

I initially read this as “Aussie Waffle Breakfast” and was admittedly a little saddened after rereading :’D
Waffle flavoured tea though- I could be on to something!

Who needs actual breakfast when you can have waffle tea!?

I got this tea when lovely Gentleman actually suggested we go all the way out to Shoreditch just to visit the T2 shop when we were in London last weekend. Bless his beautiful heart.

I also got it because I knew basically nothing about wattleseed except that I’d never tried it before, and it was an Australian thing. T2 being an Australian company, I thought it’d be appropriate to give this one a go. And I’m so glad I did. Straight out of the bag I get a scent of malty, sweet tea, redolent with cinnamon, chocolate, and almond. Then I went and forgot I was making it and sort of let it steep for 9 minutes.

And you know something? Still delicious! A little tannic, but that’s to be expected with such an overbrew. It’s, like, my ultimate comfort flavour combination. The cinnamon is sweet and warming, lightened by the roasty, toasty presence of almond with hints of cocoa, bolstered by robust black tea that I’m quite sure would be nice and smooth if you brew it for 3-4 minutes instead of like ten. It’s a keeper, that’s for sure. Highly recommended!

For all the T2 blends I’ve drunk in the past, I’d never even really noticed this one. Huh! Thanks for bringing it to my attention :)

Sami Kelsh

Oh man, it’s so good. Do it!

Sample obtained…!
