10 Best Sweet T2 Teas To Warm You Up This Winter
Celebrate the season sipping on a sweet, winter warming tea!
Some of us drink tea for the caffeine, others drink tea for the herbaceous remedies. But, some teas can also be a sweet treat, especially during those cold winter nights. Warm your icy hands on a hot cup of brew and let the sweet aromas swirl across your shivering face.
Most people would aim for hot chocolate, but there are other options that can be just as flavourful and decadent – you just need to know where to look! That’s why tea is just the perfect solution to warming up and still being able to indulge in sweetness. And our friends at T2 have the goods!
Forget the loganberries and peppermint, these 10 winter teas are just as flavoursome, sweet and devilish as the next.
The sweetest treat ever to leave France and grace the world is Crème Brûlée, translated exactly to “burnt cream”. And now this sweet dessert can now be sampled in tea form thanks to T2. It’s a rich black tea blended with vanilla, caramel and hazelnut flavours to bring the crème brûlée experience to life. Breathe in the tantalising aromas after a hearty dinner, and match with an equally sweet dessert.
Merry Berry Meringue
The Merry Berry Meringue is a fruity tisane in a girthy 100-gram tin. It’s like a classic Christmas pavlova brewed in a hot cup of tea, perfect for Aussies and New Zealanders alike. The punchy and sweet meringue notes dance in creamy flavours topped off with kiwi fruits, blueberries and strawberries. Slightly tangy, super moreish and born to shine at tea time. Or any time!
As the name suggests, this loose leaf tea is a fruity explosion of berries and other exotic fruit. Expect a concoction of cranberries, blueberries, dragonfruit, goji berries and even kiwi fruit. Who knows, your tastebuds may tap out from too much tantalising sweetness. This tangy brew could swirl your emotions and send you dancing at tea time.
Hot Jam Brownie
Don’t worry, it’s not possible to get a sugar overload from a tisane tea, but the Hot Jam Brownie may just be your placebo. With more jam than a 1980s rock band and a palate of gooey chocolate mixed with creamy flavours in a black tea base, you may need to loosen your belt after a cup or two. How can something so indulgent be rather healthy?
Toffee is the classic sugary treat that every child has experienced, and T2 has brought it back in a sweet tea form for winter. Featuring chunky nougat pieces and melted caramel in a velvety black tea base, your senses will revert back to kooky carnivals or even good ol’ grandma’s house. What better way to finish off a hearty dinner!
Strawberries & Cream
This Strawberries and Cream tisane is T2’s most revered loose leaf tea. It tastes just as good as it sounds, teeming with strong strawberry flavours, a hint of tang and plenty of creamy goodness. One of the best teas for winter, it elegantly captures the simple dessert it aims to mimic, featuring other flavours of rosehip and hibiscus to round off the perfect digestif.
The origins of the lamington are hard to pin down, but one thing we do know is how good it tastes. And this tisane brew, featuring chewy bits of coconut and an underlining swell of chocolate, plays the part. It even includes hints of raspberry jam to balance out for a full-bodied black tea brew. Best served at afternoon tea with pluckable desserts.
Lovers of the notorious Jaffa lollies will be swooning over the Jaffalicious loose leaf tea from T2. Because what goes best with chocolate? That’s right, oranges! This full-bodied black tea brew features smooth dark chocolate and tangy orange, offering a quintessential combo that delights at tea time. Hell, it even works at breakfast time!
The Apple Crumble loose leaf tea showcases all the necessary ingredients that go into an apple crumble. Expect a palate of apple, cinnamon, chicory, and hazelnut brittle. Brewed for three minutes in boiling water, and you’ve got the best slice for the better part of an afternoon. Match with a bowl of ice cream and you’ve got a delightful digestif.
Finding it hard to cut down on your chocolate addiction? Then grab yourself a box or two of this Hot Choc loose leaf tea. It’s mixed in a black tea brew featuring cacao nibs, cocoa husks, choccy pieces, and a dusting of cacao for your hot cocoa overload. Sip away with a bag of marshmallows, and you’ve got a wild night in on a cold winter’s day!
Note: all these teas are loose-leaf, so consider getting a filtered teapot or a mini strainer. Don’t fret, T2 sells an array of teapots and accessories. Go ahead, treat yourself!
