We Are Tea Review
Here at Girls Afternoon Tea we appreciate a really good cuppa. We were therefore delighted to be sent some samples of tea from award winning premium UK tea suppliers We Are Tea.
Members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, We Are Tea support smaller ethical tea estates across the globe. They pride themselves on serving only the highest quality loose leaf tea that’s sourced the right way.
There is no comparison between your general supermarket teas and the teas from We are Tea. Their loose leaf teas are brought to you in 100% biodegradable corn starch teabags. These clearly display the variety of tea leaves and infusions contained within the bag and their unique fragrances.
English Breakfast Black Tea
“A full bodied breakfast blend of the finest Assam”
A favourite choice for us, breakfast tea can be enjoyed at any time of day. This didn’t disappoint and offered a strong, flavoursome cuppa without being too overbearing and definitely had a smooth taste. We would highly recommend it.
Moroccan Mint Tea
“Rolled green tea leaves from China and peppermint leaf from Poland”
Deliciously scented, this was a very refreshing tea which cleansed the palate. Sometimes green tea can have a chemical after taste but this definitely offered pure and organic qualities. This was well liked by our tea testers who said their mouths felt very fresh for some time after drinking it. Another recommendation.
Super Berry Fruit Tea Bags
“Packed with red berries, hibiscus, apple, orange & rose-hip and caffeine free”
This loose leaf tea smelled divine and its texture and deep pink colour wouldn’t look out of place in a pot pourri bowl. As recommended we added one teaspoon per cup and let it infuse for approximately three minutes. This pretty, pink tea was light and fruity. The majority of our tasters were not normally fans of fruit teas as sometimes they can be bitter. However, this was definitely smooth and, we felt, could be drunk straight without feeling the desire to sweeten it. Our non-fruity tea fans thought it was a very pleasant cuppa and would definitely drink it again.
“Hand picked flower head tea from Egypt”
This caffeine free tea had a very delicate aroma and a very light and smooth taste. One for relaxing in the evenings and would be a popular choice.
