Time for Tea Please?
On a quick visit to Birmingham I made sure I had enough time to pop in to T2 other than there pop up shop in the London Selfridges this was my first ever visit to a fully fledged store.
What I loved about the store on first entering was the use of contrasting colours between the black fixtures and the co,our full packaging of their tea. Especially when combined with beauTEAful tea wear.
Tea Tasting – Choc Pear Pudding
Firstly I love the packaging design, it’s very different from their normal packaging but is still eye catching in an almost elegant way.
Time to get sipping! As expected with a black based tea the brewed liquid is brown in its colouring. The aroma to me is fairly light but you can certainly smell the cocoa.
On first sip it’s very intriguing, it’s light in flavour yet rich too. The contrast of the cocoa and black tea is full and rich, yet it is softened with the pear tones. The combination of flavours works perfect. Maybe a little subtle for taste but still tealicious.
Tea Tasting – Boho Rose
I love a floral tea! I don’t know why but I just do. So I was very interested to try this tea. Especially as it was blended with sparkling water. It’s not ever crossed my mind to blend tea with sparkling water to make a fizzy iced tea of sorts.
Mmmmm first sip was delicious. Perfectly rich and floral with an underlying natural sweetness. Particularly as an iced brew, it makes such a refreshing sipping experience. The mix of the tea and sparkling water is just beauTEAful , if only I’d found this tea for summer brewing it would have been perfectly refreshing on a hot day.
My first T2 visit didn’t disappoint !
Happy Sipping 🙂
