T2: Creme Brulee

Having first discussed my love of tea a year ago and with Autumn once again around the corner, I thought I would discuss of one of my favourite teas.  Crème Brulee from the Australian teashop T2, is both delicious and heartening. The T2 website describes the tea as:

“A silky, decadent sweet treat. Velvety vanilla plays with caramelised hazelnuts in a gorgeously golden brew. An intense aroma enhances a refined and delicate infusion. Creamy and dreamy, this buttery caramel delight sings the song of after-dinner contentment.”

This description is one that suits the tea to a tee (see what I did there). The flavours and aromas of the Crème Brulee tea are wonderful and so aromatic. Similar to that of a chocolate flavoured black-tea, Crème Brulee offers a robust flavour, with the lingering aftertaste one of sweetness.

Much like its dessert counterpart, I find the best time for this tea is during the evening. Whether it is relaxing with a book, TV, movie or any other relaxing past time, Crème Brulee is a lovely companion to contentment.

While not being too overly sweet, Crème Brulee is a tea reminiscent of its namesake; namely it is a decadent yet homey treat.  Great with either milk or without, Crème Brulee proves to be a perfect winter night treat. Crème Brulee is a tea that is both comfortable and luxurious, one that while evoking images of a gourmet desert , fits in right at home in any kitchen.
