I was having a leisure day in Melbourne, wandering the streets of the artsy neighborhood, Fitzroy, when I came across T2. Located on Brunswick Street, T2 is a tea lover's dream, with locations in major cities throughout Australia. Catering to the novice tea drinkers and connoisseurs alike, this tea shop is heavenly, offering freshly brewed tea samplings and a loose leaf tea selection that will please most any palate. I personally fell in love with chocolate chip chai.
T2's collection of tea sets and dishware are lovely as well, and vary from traditional to whimsical in style. During a recent visit, I gravitated to the Moroccan and Rose tea set series. They are gorgeous and fun. T2 also sells great gift sets, honey, jams, and cookies. Tea shopping has never been so fun.
