We Are Tea - Review

We Are Tea, founded by husband and wife team, Spence and Suzy, they opened a teashop in the heart of London in 2007. The teashop offered a unique and valuable opportunity for Spence and Suzy to engage first hand with the consumer and perfect their tea blends prior to launching their retail range. This coupled with their philosophy of ethically sourcing top quality whole-leaf teas direct from artisan producers and hand-packing them in the UK, has resulted in their multi-award winning teas securing their first multiple retail listing. 
You all know I love a cup of tea, and when it comes to tea everyone has their preference. We Are Tea’s range of teas are organised into a unique colour-coding system to help differentiate between the types. For example teas in the ‘black tea’ section offer strength and depth of flavour and are a great way to start the day while teas in the ‘green tea’ section are generally lighter and more delicate. A helpful guide for novice tea drinkers.

I was sent Chamomile Flowers, Gunpowder Supreme, Ceylon with Vanilla, Earl Grey Supreme, Revitealise and Super Berry to run my taste buds over.

There is a clear description for each tea, detailing the ingredients for each special blend. There is no guidance on exactly how long you should brew each tea, as this is a very individual choice. When it comes to strength everyone differs while some people like flavour brewed long that packs a punch others enjoy a mere tickle. Ooh I like that, in future I shall have to ask 'How do you like your tea? -  a tickle or a punch!' Ha ha.

Tea bags 
Usually when you have a special blend of tea, it's loose in a tin. You then have to brew this in a teapot before pouring through a strainer. But with We Are Tea available in biodegradable whole-leaf teabags you get to enjoy a special special cup of tea even at your desk at work. 

So far I have tried the following teas:-

Ceylon with Vanilla
Whole-leaf black tea carefully scented with real vanilla. True to its description it gives you the impression of indulging in a sweet treat, if you like sugar in your tea but want to cut back on the sweet stuff then this is the tea for you. It is light, refreshing and the vanilla gives it almost a sweet taste. I brewed this tea for approx 6 minutes and served without milk or sugar.

Earl Grey Supreme
A blend of the finest whole-leaf black teas scented with oil of bergamot and sprinkled with cornflowers. This was a delight to drink, I was wary about it being strong so only brewed this for one minute (just a tickle) without milk or sugar. It had great flavour and then the taste of oil of bergamot came through. I think I would choose this over the Ceylon with vanilla, this is more of a tea to drink every day.

I am looking forward to trying the remaining tea, in fact I am taking a few of them to work.

But you do not have to just take my word for the teas tasting beautiful in only 4 years We Are Tea have been awarded 36 Great Taste Awards.
