Do T2 teas contain caffeine?
Black, green, oolong, and white teas all contain various levels of caffeine. Tea is a natural crop, meaning it is difficult to determine exact caffeine levels, and we therefore cannot provide definitive figures. The table below lists the average levels of caffeine that can be found in different teas. All of our herbal and fruit tisanes are naturally caffeine free. Please note that this chart is intended as a guide only.
Black tea / 25 – 90mg
Oolong tea / 12-55mg
Green tea / 8 – 36mg
White tea / 6 – 25mg
Coffee / 50 – 170mg
Are T2 teas halal/kosher?
At the moment T2 teas do not have halal or kosher certification.
Does T2 sell decaffeinated tea?
No, here at T2 we do not decaffeinate any of our teas. The decaffeination process involves a lot of chemicals that can affect the flavour and quality of the tea. For this reason we do not have decaffeinated tea as part of our range, and instead have plenty of naturally caffeine free herbal tisanes for you to enjoy. Check out our herbal tisane range here.
Are T2 teas organic?
At the moment we have a small but delicious range of Australian Certified Organic (ACO) teas and tisanes. Check them out here.
We travel the globe searching for only the very best teas and tisanes, and pride ourselves on choosing teas from suppliers with strong ethics and approaches to growing tea.
How should I store my T2 teas?

I purchased a tea online and I don’t like the flavour. Can I return it?
Unfortunately only items that are in their original saleable condition can be returned.
Does tea expire? Is it safe to drink tea after it’s expired?

How does T2 determine the volume of a teapot?
We fill our teapots 2-3cm below the shoulder of the teapot when determining its volume. This ensures there are no issues with water escaping when pouring at a 45-degree angle, which is the safety point for pouring without putting your fingers onto the lid.
What is T2’s position on ethical sourcing of products?
Our product team has relationships and processes with our suppliers to ensure our standards are met. This process includes the following:
