Got it as a free sampler from T2 when I picked up some other tea.

Pretty good spin on a black breakfast tea. I find plain black breakfast teas to be too bitter usually, but this one is quite nice without being too sweet. Its not listed and maybe my pallate isnt as developed but I get a strong chocolate note.

This one is still leftover from my swap with Cameron B. I must say that it definitely tastes like buttery pancakes! I was surprised at the degree to which it does. The aftertaste is bit bitter tasting, which is a little strange since I used a shorter steep than I usually do. If I were at home, I would add some milk to counteract that, but I’m at work, so oh well! I’ll resteep it with some milk later and see if I can bring that buttery flavor out even more.

It’s a solid breakfast tea without being bitter. I don’t get the pancake inspiration, but I swear this does remind me of raisin bread. I distinctly get raisins and cinnamon and bread or pastry. My husband and daughter think I’m nuts, though, about the raisins, so maybe it’s just me…but it was definitely there! I don’t love this as much as some of the other T2 teas I’ve tried, but I do think it’s good and I will enjoy all of it.

Upgrading my rating a bit, and I will repeat here my update on Melbourne Breakfast, since I’m making these both the same newer way (tl/dr: More is Better!):

I’m finding I prefer much higher amounts of leaf than I had been using, so like a level(ish) tablespoon (a bit under 4 grams) for two infusions in my 300 ml cup, sweet and a splash of milk is delicious … Also pertinent: instead of using an infuser in my cup, I used a small teapot. The infuser is pretty big, but free floating then strained is better.

This has been promoted to “Will definitely buy again.” :)

So this is meant to be a pancake-inspired black tea.

Personally, I’m underwhelmed by it. I taste a little bit of cinnamon, maybe a hint of vanilla or butter.

Mostly it just tastes like a bland black tea base, not flavorful in the least. I don’t even know how to describe the flavor other than “tea-ish”, which sounds ridiculous.

How do you describe generic-tasting black tea?

Oh no, what a shame. The description sounds so good. I was tempted to buy a box of this when I last ordered from T2 but chose Caramel Brownie instead. I’m happy with my decision after reading this! :)

To be fair, I haven’t been the biggest fan of most of T2’s blends. The only notable exception I can think of at the moment is French Earl Grey.

For generic black tea, I think of a Lipton tea bag kind of flavor. I do happen to disagree with that description for this tea, though, just to be fair! :)

This is one of the better pancake-inspired blends I’ve tried. The black tea base isn’t really anything remarkable, but it blends well with the flavors of vanilla and cinnamon. I enjoyed it hot and straight, but I preferred it with a splash of milk. It’s not a tea I’d repurchase, but I might hold onto the rest of the 100g. It’d probably make a nice latte.

I used a recipe from T2’s website, and made this one up as a salted caramel latte. The tea itself is described in terms of pancakes, so it seemed a bit of a stretch from that to salted caramel. It worked, though, so that was a surprise! Apparently, adding 1 tsp of honey and a pinch of salt can have a fairly drastic effect!

I can’t say all that much about the tea just now, as I’ve yet to try it plain. It stood up well to the milk and additions, though, and contributed a lot of its own flavour – I wouldn’t say pancakes, perhaps, but there was a certain “bakery” kind of quality, a maple-like sweetness, and a little bit of astringent bite. Combined with the salt and honey, I could definitely imagine salted caramel.

What I wanted from this one was a warming, comforting, just-in-from-work kind of cup, and that’s what I got. I’m enjoying being a bit more creative, too – it’s inspiring to do something different!

I’ll write a more in depth tasting note for this one once I’ve tried it on its own, but for now I’m very happy with it!

I tried this tea in my local T2 and I was suprised with the sweetness of this tea. It was like drinking pancakes with syrup but not in an overly sweet way. It was very confusing though but I enjoyed it regardless. Its now on my wishlist

This is a flavoured tea, not a tea whose flavour complexity comes from blending different tea leaves. It came in a gift box of various black teas, and I thought they were all real tea. It’s like buying wine when the wine-maker has added some sugar and vanilla essence but still calling it wine! It has a cheap maple cla our that has an almost chocolate smell. If that’s what you want, then fine, but I was in the mood for real tea made with a blend of black tea, and I did not get it.

Delicious. This was a change from my usual T2 Melbourne Breakfast, but the concept of vanilla & cinnamon intrigued me. And it was a good choice! The pancakes impression is seriously strong. If I didn’t know that I was supposed to be tasting cinnamon, I’m not sure I’d identify it as such, so if you’re not a fan of that flavour in your tea, I wouldn’t worry. I’m not sure this will make it onto my “must always have available” shortlist, but I’m definitely going to enjoy it while I have it. Buttery, maple, and cosy.
