The people at T2 know how to put on a party. Last night I visited the Regent Street store to witness Chai baristas from all over the UK battle it out for a place in the International T2 Chai Championships in Australia where the winner will win a once in a life time trip to the Chai motherland, India!
With a Mumbai Meets London themed evening of chai-infused treats, Indian delicacies and some of the best macaroons I’ve ever experienced, T2 is certainly more than just tea.
The Venison Keema Samosa with Tamarind Chutney and Chai Spices was a dream and I’m pretty sure we ate far more than our fair share of these little morsels of heaven. I was very impressed with the Dhokla (steamed lentil cake), the Mumbai Maple Chai tea and of course, the Green Tea Macaroons that were by far the most intensely creamy and delicious macaroons I’ve ever experienced.
Well done to Krisi Smith from Bluebird Tea Co for winning last night, I’m rooting for you!
