If you have been following our blog over the last couple of years you may have seen our Christmas tea advent DIY or our love of Christmas tea blends so you can imagine our delight when we were invited by T2 to attend a preview event of their Christmas collection, Joy 2 the Wild. This was exciting in two parts, the first being invited to a bloggers evening (does that make us proper bloggers!?) and the second being CHRISTMAS TEA!!!
Never being one to say no to tea we of course went along to their Regent Street store, walking across Oxford Street with the Christmas lights up got us in the festive spirit.
After being welcomed by their lovely staff we were ushered inside and given tea cocktails and mince pies to warm us up before looking at the new collection and watching demonstrations of various tea-gadgets. T2 never fail to impress us with their beautifully designed teaware and delicious blends.
There were plenty of tea samples to try including Choc Molten Marvel, Paradise Punch and their super festive blend Christmas Breakfast. We were delighted at the sweet chocolatey-ness of Choc Molten Marvel and this will definitely be one we’ll be stocking up on. Christmas Breakfast was all you could ever want from a festive blend, with ginger and cinnamon notes, with vanilla and nutmeg. We also tried their Vanilla Matcha as an iced latte which was reminiscent of a vanilla milkshake and so delicious!
After drinking our weight in tea and making a few cheeky purchases, we selected a gift from the range to each take home (thank you T2!!) before realising we were the last ones in the store and should probably head leave…
Kate chose to take home this double walled glass tumbler, perfect for cold-brew tea or watching tea-flowers unfold along with the perfect gift box Twenty Adventures which contains 20 delicious teabags, perfect if you want to try some new blends, or aren’t sure which to buy for someone.
Becca chose Into the Forest which features a selection of 12 teabags and this gorgeous fern printed stoneware tumbler, perfect for sipping your favourite brew from.
Discover the whole collection yourself with T2’s Joy 2 the Wild gift guide.
