I was recently gifted a box of T2’s Melbourne Breakfast tea – nice huh? I mean, celebrating a little personal milestone with tea – I APPROVE!
Anyway, the tea. It’s black tea, lightly flavoured with vanilla and honey – a bit like English Breakfast with a melted caramel dropped into it. As much as I love a bit of the sweet stuff, I was momentarily dubious on the vanilla/black tea combo. But, it really works! There’s still that slightly bitter black tea taste (particularly if you brew strong like I do) but it’s tempered with the buttery, sweet vanilla taste. T2 tells me it’s best at breakfast, but also goes well with a sweet treat like cake or pastries or fruit toast even, which I can definitely see.
Me? I like it as an afternoon pick-me-up, a little ooh-its-not-chocolate-but-its-still-sweet trick to the psyche, or even a dessert-fake-out.
What about you? Have you given Melbourne Breakfast a go? What do you reckon?
PS: Happy Easter from Tea Freaks! Have a goodun everyone!
