T2 Gorgeous Geisha

When I’m asked for recom­mend­a­tions for teas at T2, T2 Gorgeous Geisha always makes the list. It’s a straw­berry and cream fla­voured sen­cha that I enjoy above all oth­er teas I’ve had the pleas­ure of try­ing at T2.

Steeping 2.5 grams of looseleaf in 200 ml of 75°C water for 90 seconds yields a lightly golden brown liquor with a com­fort­ing mel­low sweet smell of straw­ber­ries and cream. The lus­cious fruity straw­berry notes come through with a creamy smooth­ness from the first sip ahead of the sweet veget­al green tea notes, before re-emer­ging in the fin­ish as the per­fect faux-dessert tea. There’s no acid­ity to the sweet straw­berry notes in this fla­voured tea with the creamy ele­ments cre­at­ing a smooth­er mouth­feel than Lupicia Apple & Berry. It’s a pleas­ure to drink.

This box of T2 Gorgeous Geisha con­tained 100 g. The tea was packed in Australia and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2010.
