As I embed myself in British life, I’m growing more and more fond of tea. But it was with much excitement that I discovered my favourite tea store from back in Australia had recently expanded to my new city.
T2 has opened several locations around London, but last weekend, I checked out the King’s Road store. It’s a perfect little sanctuary to escape the hustle and bustle of the shopping street and enjoy a nice, little (free!) cup of tea.
There’s a huge selection of inventive tea blends along the walls of the store, with plenty of tasters set up as well so you can discover new flavours and try before you buy.
The store also stocks beautiful tea accessories, from cups and saucers to strainers and containers for tea storage.
But it’s the tea that’s the real star here. My personal favourites are Girly Grey (Earl Grey with an extra dash of orange and lemon) and Tummy Tea (peppermint, liquorice root, fennel and marigold flowers). The knowledgeable staff are also happy to help you make new discoveries based on your tastes and provide advice on how to make the most of your tea.
If you’re into tea, make sure you check out T2!
