It’s only a small unit, but there’s a great energy in there from the buzz of conversation and orders being shouted around the kitchen and cake displays. Some of the most colourful and thought-out food displays I’ve seen. I want their hand-written labels on everything in my life.
T2 is an Australian-born company, with a love for every element of the tea growing and brewing process. There are a few stores in the UK with the majority of them in London – lucky me! I first wandered into the branch on Regent Street on a rainy afternoon, and was greeted with a choice of 5 teas at their tea bar. The Shoreditch branch, and presumably the others, have a tea bar with various teas from the store on rotation. There’s an tester tin next to all the tea on display to have a good sniff of, and if you don’t mind waiting the barista will brew you a sample of anything you want to try.
