Fabulous Finds - We Are Tea

℅ We Are Tea

I am a habitual tea drinker and I have been for most of my life. I always feel like I'm doing something good for myself when I drink a cup a tea… I mean, it's no secret that tea has a great reputation for providing loads of health benefits. It's also an incredibly soothing & relaxing treat you can give yourself anytime - it's the ultimate small luxury.

That said, I'm always on the lookout for new, exciting teas to try… I actually have a bit of a tea shopping problem and often have to put myself on hold because it stacks up faster than I can drink it.

I was intrigued by We Are Tea the first time I heard about it. With flavors like Gunpowder Supreme, Super Berry, Activitea and Daintea, how could I not be just a little curious? I decided to do a bit of a tea tasting to see if We Are Tea lives up to its reputation, tasting Super Berry, Activitea and Moroccan Mint.

Super Berry

I have to say, I love this infusion tea. It's pink, fruity and smells amazing! I'm not even sure what it smells like, but it's incredible and it wraps you up in warm comfort like a big bear hug, but doesn't actually taste too much like tea. I highly recommend this tea for people who claim to not like tea - it has its own flavor. Super Berry is also naturally caffeine free, so it's perfect for drinking just before bed time when you need that extra little bit of warmth before crawling between the sheets. Ingredients include red berries, hibiscus, rose hip, apple pieces and orange peels… All good stuff and delicious too!

Activitea With Ginseng

Also known as the energy tea, this is the cuppa you want to drink when you'd have rather slept in, but duty calls. It's spicy flavor is invigorating to the senses. It kind of reminds me of mulled wine, but not at all sweet… Ingredients include black tea, sunflower petals, red rose buds, rose petals, fennel, aniseed, licorice root, cardamom, black pepper, ceylon cinnamon bits, ginger bits, cloves and ginseng. There's no keeping you down after a cup of this magic potion - perfect during the holiday season when over-indulging makes waking up in the morning a bit cumbersome!

Moroccan Mint

From We Are Tea's range of green teas, Moroccan Mint is refreshing and an award winning tea to boot! I can certainly see why - it's everything you want from a peppermint tea, yet it's also green tea, which we all know is an amazing antioxidant. Ingredients include green tea and peppermint leaf - it's as simple as that, but balanced to perfection! I feel that Moroccan Mint will become a staple in my kitchen - it's just that perfect! It's also amazing either steaming hot or ice cold… Don't you just love a bit of versatility?

We Are Tea offers all of their flavors either in tea bags or as loose leaf, so you can enjoy them however you please. You can also use these teas to create cocktails or even to cook with! Check out the We Are Tea blog for inspiration, recipes and more.
