Seriously, I would wake up earlier knowing this tea is waiting.
Good things come in small packages and boxes.
|This is not a funny-colored nickel!|
Remember my earlier post about needing to purchase a suitcase for all the tea I bought?
This place, T2, was one of the reasons.
|Even more options!|
Whilst others were walking about Westfield Bondi Junction Mall with their brightly-colored orange shopping bags full of tea, I was pulling a suitcase! Basically because of this place.
So I thought I would dedicate the next several Tuesdays as T2 Tuesdays. Because, well. I bought a lot. (really deep way understatement. And the Australian dollar was in my favor, so I'm thinking, "25% off sale"! And I got that cool purple Australian Luggage suitcase to bring back and reload with more tea.)
We are talking weeks/even months here, people.
And if you think Teavana is nirvana? Not even close to T2.
Anyways, on to the review (and to planning a return trip to Australia and this place! And a hotel which has an electric tea kettle and a tea chest in each room)
This week - T2 Tea Melbourne Breakfast
|a little banged up from transit|
Price: $13.50 US (Yes! You can order this online in the United States! Or travel to their Soho and Brooklyn stores)
Size: 25 teabags
Type of Tea: Black
Steeping time: 4 minutes
Mix ins: Tastes wonderful on its own, but really dances with a splash of milk/Natural Bliss. Or Fat Free Half and Half.
Fragrance: Vanilla, malty, Vanilla. Did I say Vanilla?
Ingredients: Black tea, natural and artificial vanilla flavor
Opinion: This was actually the first tea I sample smelled when I entered the Sydney store. Very helpful and nice sales associates. I thought Numi and Mighty Leaf Vanilla Bean teas were the ultimate vanilla - move over, y'all. You inhale and exhale vanilla with each sip of Melbourne Breakfast.
