T2 Monk Pear, T2 Green Rose and T2 Girly Grey
It’s no secret that I’m a tea lover; I drink more tea a day than what doctors recommend you drink water – which is actually a problem because I don’t like water and black tea is allegedly is a mild dehydrant.
It was my sister who first introduced me to T2; the first time I smelt their signature Earl Grey blend I was in olfactory heaven. That delicious, intense perfume of bergamot couldn’t compare to the supermarket leaves I was used to. I was an instant convert. These days I find myself working in very close proximity to a T2 retail store and often go on shopping sprees there during my lunch breaks. I spend more money at T2 some weeks than I do on fashion. It’s a fairly inexpensive way to treat myself and I feel good supporting an independent Melbourne business!
At first I only drank their Earl Grey blend exclusively; but I became so accustom to the flavour that I stopped being able to enjoy it. I now mix up my blends regularly to ensure I can enjoy the full aroma and flavour of all my favourite T2 blends such as Monk Pear, Black Rose and Earl Grey Royale. They say you should never store your tea in direct sunlight so I picked up these beautiful frosted black aluminium canisters which look lovely on the kitchen counter. They also have a range of some of the most gorgeous patterned crockery around; but the minimalist in me prefers the simplicity of white.
