You may have heard of T2 before, or if you are like me and obviously live under a tea shaped rock, you haven’t. The first time I heard of T2 was when at the Taste London festival in the summer, where they had a stand. One of my Australian friends pointed out that it’s an Australian company and that they do really good tea, and a lot of it. So when I moved to Cheltenham in August and discovered that they recently opened a T2 shop, I was intrigued!
They stock a wide selection of black, fruit and herbal teas, with some very interesting flavours (Toasted Marshmallow anyone?)
Since it’s nearing to Christmas, I opted for the Sweet Spice tea after trying one of their samples. It tasted very much like mulled wine, so a great alternative to alcohol for those designated drivers around Christmas time!
What I love about this tea is that the sweetness comes from the little meringue pieces – how cute! Definitely recommend!
Onyx London Orange Cookies Black Tea
£8.28 for 90g.
£13.80 for 200g.
Onyx London is a company that has recently launched by one of my patisserie course friends. A lovely couple who obviously absolutely adore tea!
This tea was gifted to me by them, and even though I’m not usually a big fan of orange flavours, I didn’t find it too orangey at all! I really liked it’s light flavours which leaves a hint of spice in your mouth afterwards. This tea is perfect for those times when you just want to curl up on the sofa with a blanket, stick on your favourite Christmas movie and just chill out. They also have a gift option too, so also a brilliant Christmas present for your tea fanatic friends.
Keiths of Cirencester Christmas Coffee
I actually cannot remember the exact price, but I reckon around £5.00 for a bag. They also do not have a website.
I recently mentioned my trip to buy this coffee in one of my previous posts here. I have however since tried it, and am really liking this one. I have bought Christmas coffees in the past (I think my last one was from Harrods) but none have compared to this one. It has a bit of a nutty flavour, and a very light spice to it, whilst still tasting like normal coffee, if that makes sense at all! These flavours are not strong, but I just really like using it for my morning caffe latte. With the milk, the flavours really stand out. A great one for Christmas morning I think!
The shop is located in Cirencester on Black Jack St (GL7 2AA)
