T2 is tea done differently. Celebrating difference to make a difference. Creating a generation of tea lovers to unite the world for good. Like their teas, their people are a unique blend. They come together to embrace their differences, celebrate diversity and create a brewing force for good in every T2 community. Embracing diversity means celebrating the fact that each person is unique, and recognising their individual differences is both liberating and beautiful. Their take on tea serves up a modern twist on an ancient ritual. From single-origin pure teas and unique flavours to bespoke teawares and innovative brew tools, there’s something to suit every tea lover. Conscious of everything they do. From first leaf, to last sip. Continuously striving to reduce their footprint and give back to the very ground that gives so much. As a brewing force for good, every cup of T2 is an opportunity to have a positive environmental impact.
