That amazing cold chocolate white tea with cinnamon and vanilla soy
T2 at Westfield's in Bondi Junction is massive. To begin with, they're generous with their samples out of many of the other T2 stores visited in Sydney. That is a plus.
The staff are super attentive and helpful. A great place to buy those boxes of T2 teas, of which can easily last you a month if you consume a cup a day. My favourites are the Detox and the Chai varieties.
Cool and quirky
Your tea supplies are also available. You'll need a little spoon, and a diffuser that sits in your cup no matter how long.
Now to the most exciting part of the experience: the taste tests. Firstly, I tried some cold, milky tea infused with T2's Chocolate Black Tea - as well as with their Cinnamon tea. This tea sample was made with Vanilla Soy. Super delicious. This is when you're in the mood to fill that little orange T2 cup. Bins are also provided to throw your cups away afterwards.
The delicious Sencha Peach tea
Meanwhile I take in more of the ambience, and I go for a taste of their cold Sencha Peach tea. This one is refreshing, and I love it how they've included a couple of fresh limes in it.
The jug for my third tasting of tea was just too good to pass up. On this, one of the staff had only just filled this one up. Loved the mixture of freshly cut strawberries and lemon with ice. The main T2 tea blend used was the Strawberry Bliss Chai, as well as the Sencha Peach again. Lovely. This one was a little too strong and sweet for my liking. I was already quite full of tea at this point, and therefore luckily I only poured the equivalent of two sips into another little orange cup.
So it's lovely T2 tea.
Wonderful and quality tea. If you want great customer service at T2, then come to this one at Westfield Bondi Junction.
