From T2

What’s life without a little bit of chocolate? Have your green tea and eat it too, with this mouthwatering blend of cocoa husks, brittle pieces, almonds, Gen Mai Cha, chicory root and blackberry. Savor the warm nutty flavor with hints of chocolate and hazelnut praline, and be taken to greener pastures with every sip.

i do believe this is the oldest tea in my current cupboard, and I finally opened it today. The T2 retail shop I bought it from is long gone, sadly, and I remember getting it on impulse. You know how it goes, they always have a couple of teas brewing for tasting when you’re in the store and somehow you end up buying. Sneaky devils!
I admit I had below low expectations. Although unopened and still sealed, this tea’s been languishing in the back of my tea shelf (technically two shelves at this point) for years. Essentially, it’s a genmaicha with chocolate flavor. Sounds rather disgusting at first glance, but it works – I really like it. The genmaicha is very faded at this point, so I’m not getting a ton of nuttiness, but the chocolate is very cocoa-y and really pleasant. Imagine if I had opened this up years ago – probably would have been excellent. So weird, but really good.

Flavors: Cocoa, Nutty

I’ve only found one tea I like from T2, and I’ve been disappointed so many times that I stopped ordering from them. This does sound intriguing though, especially because the chocolate element is from cacao and not flavoring…

Sakura Sushi

Hmmm, just one? Which one is it? I’m curious. I was on a T2 Terrific Toffee binge for awhile, but I do tire of their teas over time. Lamington was another that I really liked. I find that I’m really particular about flavored teas at this point, and always seem to go to my tried and true favorites, so the odds of replenishing any T2 teas are slim at best.

French Earl Grey is the one I like (though I find the name very misleading). It’s a fruity Earl Grey. I will say I tend to dislike chocolate flavoring, so perhaps that’s why I don’t enjoy a lot of their dessert blends. :(

Although I see they have their advent calendar out… Hmm… XD

Advent day 1

I’m drinking this on day two because yesterday was such an unexpected long day away from my kettle that I couldn’t caffeine by the time I got home. I’m super excited for a flavored genmaicha! It seems like it is a tea that is often overlooked in the world of flavoring tea. The cocoa/brittle part makes me think of Nina’s Japon, but this has a lighter flavor and nutty finish that makes me think peanut until I read that it’s supposed to be hazelnut. I can see that now. It’s not bursting with flavor, which is how I prefer my teas, but it has enough to be interesting.

Slightly disappointing… I had high expectations after reading the reviews on the T2 website.
People describe it as life-changing, Ferrero rocher (say what? definitely not) creamy goodness. Well, I’m not a massive fan.
Usually love green teas, love Genmaicha but this one is an odd egg in the basket. I don’t like the cocoa flavour in it and the smokiness, somehow it just tastes artificial.
Won’t be going back to this flavour, regular Genmaicha is definitely more my cup of tea!

Another Sampler Sipdown

This one was surprisingly very good amidst all the meh teas that came as a part of the sampler. The dry leaves smell like a pancake breakfast. The tea itself is very nutty and the taste like toffee or candied pecans. It was delicious and sweet. It would make a great dessert tea. I was surprised by how much the sweetness did not overpower the tea.

A lovely popcorny genmaicha, the chocolate/cocoa is very subtle and almost unnoticeable. If you like T2 Singapore Breakfast you’ll probably like this too.

This one definitely needs to be brewed at a lower temperature, or it’s just nasty. Brewed correctly, it only has a mild genmaicha taste that is well balanced with the green tea and the sweeter nutty flavors. I didn’t realize it was a genmaicha tea when I bought it, or I probably wouldn’t have done so as I don’t tend to care for them. However, I like it now that I have it. It does have a strong genmaicha scent, which I don’t personally care for.

I’m also so intrigued by people who brew greens at boiling or very close to, and claim to enjoy it. They are so much better when brewed correctly! It was a major revelation for me when I learned that. I can’t handle greens brewed above 190F or so now (unless they are ones meant to be brewed hotter).

Luckily this was free. Hated it because it was bitter and only tasted and smelt like 100% green tea. I ain’t tasting no ferrero or chocolate or anything remotely hazelnut. A bit of a let down when I saw many reviews about how chocolatey this is.

Still hate green tea with every bit of my soul.

The tea mostly has a popcorn scent, which is due to the use of Genmaicha as its base. I would prefer a stronger hazelnut chocolate flavor which was, unfortunately, masked by the popcorn scent. Maybe normal green tea as its base would do the trick. Then again, its just my preference.

One of my favourite green teas. Deliciously sweet and satisfying. I would recommend to brew for the full 3 minutes at 80C.

Love at first sip! This is my go-to tea when I want something in a flask to take out and about. Quite forgiving of varying temperature ranges and steeping times. I’m a big fan of genmaicha and this takes it to the next level—a delicious, divine, dessert-y level!
