6 Tasting Notes
Absolutely gorgeous and uplifting tea, due to the ginger and pepper a little goes a long way. As with most teas that doesn’t contain actual tea leaves (i.e. herbal, rooibos, fruit tisane, etc.) it’s a good idea to use a little less but leave it steep for longer. Great with honey and lemon for when you have a sore throat, or mixed with a fruity tea to balance out that spicy ginger and pepper.

The T2 matcha is of a surprisingly good quality, and I enjoy it iced with lots of fresh lemon and maybe even a dash of soda or sparkling water, or hot with vanilla soy milk or any vegan milk with maple syrup. Really does need to be prepared properly, as will all matcha- whisked with 80 degree © water.
Seeing a lot of negative reviews on this tea, however I think the issue is brew time. With all teas that don’t contain actual tea leaves (so not black/white/green) I brew them from a longer period of time to a) really let them infuse and b) get the most out of my tea. Coco Loco is purely coco husks, which is fantastic if you’re looking for a dairy free chocolate drink. It honestly does taste just like chocolate if you brew it this way, for at least ten minutes to really get the flavour to come out. This tea is great blended with others e.g. Yerba Mate, and I make it at home with T2 Chilli Kiss and frothed milk. I just love knowing I’m getting a delicious chocolate flavour without the sugar, dairy and added chemicals. Big thumbs up from me! :)
