In the literature generic tensors are usually denoted by elements of the Latin or Greek alphabet like T=(T_{\al\bet}) or \eta=(\eta^i), etc. Tensor bundles with base space M are usually denoted by T^{p,q}(M); its elements are tensors of order p+q, where p is the order with respect to the contravariant indices and q with respect to the covariant indices. I wouldn't bother creating fancy symbols but rather adopt the norm.
