A Travellers Best Friend with T2

“Winter has always been my favourite time of year to drink hot drinks… there’s just something so comforting about curling up with a warm cup when it’s cold outside. A few weeks ago I was introduced to the two new additions in T2’s Brews with Benefits range and I was immediately hooked!”

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll already know that I love herbal tea, especially when it comes to travel. What I don’t love is that $5 price tag that comes with purchasing tea at airport cafes. A year ago I knew there had to be a way to make my tea obsession affordable whilst on the go – and there was! Most airport restaurants and in-flight services will give you a cup of hot water for free, so before I travel I make sure to stock up on my favourite blends and pack them into my carry on. T2 sell boxes of 25 or 60 teabags and for as little as £8, so right away that’s already a ton of money I’m saving!

Today I thought I would share with you the new additions to the T2 range and my favourite ways to enjoy them.

Wakey Wakey

A cup of Wakey Wakey is my go to drink when I need that kick of energy. Especially when I’m catching early morning flights! The tea is packed with antioxidants, restorative properties, naturally occurring caffeine and a super ingredient: yerba mate, known for its nutritional benefits containing 24 vitamins and minerals and 15 amino acids.

Brewing this tea is super easy and I love the initial fruity aroma I get when scooping the blend into my infuser – no doubt a result of the goji berries. All you need is one teaspoon of tea, fill your cup with water (temperature 80 degrees celsius) and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. I don’t have a fancy kettle so to reach the desired temperature, I fill my cup with ¼ cold water and the rest with boiling. The result is so delicious! Light and refreshing yet subtly sweet.

If  you’re like me, sometimes in the winter you still get a craving for something cold. This drink is sooooooo good as an iced tea. Just brew it for double the time and pour it in an ice filled glass.  I actually prefer this tea iced, but you’ll have to try it out yourself to decide if you like it better hot or cold.

Dandylightful

This is hands-down my favourite T2 drink right now. The dandyelion root gives my body a spring clean, which is perfect for detoxifying after a busy trip, and the cacao gives me antioxidant benefits as well as tasting incredibly delicious! I love sipping on this tea if I’m doing work or when that late afternoon sugar craving hits. Try it with soy or almond milk and a little honey, you’ll thank me later!

 For brewing, you need two teaspoons of tea, fill your cup with water (temperature 100 degrees celsius) and let sit for 5-7 minutes. Drink as is or add some milk and honey as suggested above. You honestly don’t know how good this is until you try it. It’s winter in a cup!

I first discovered T2 back home in Australia and when I arrived in London and found out it was here as well, I was beyond excited! I have so many T2 products back home but one I can’t live without is my explorer flask. It’s perfect for my travels but whats even better is on Fridays T2 have ‘Fill It Up Fridays’ so if you own a T2 flask or bottle you can take it into one of their stores and they’ll fill it up for free! It’s a tea lover’s dream.

Special thank you to T2 for gifting me with their wakey wakey and dandylightful tea
