Stepping out of my comfort zone with We Are Tea *

I am a very British person. And being a very British person, you can take an educated guess that I love tea. Honestly, is there anything better than spending the time to make yourself a perfect cup of tea – knowing that it’s for you and only you. Getting yourself some biscuits to dunk and settling into your favourite chair or your bed, putting on your favourite film or YouTuber and relishing in the fact that this is all for you. Tea is a marvellous thing and although that sounded a bit OTT, that’s genuinely how I feel sometimes when I make myself a cup of tea! 

However… when it comes to tea, I am not very adventurous. Actually, I am the least adventurous person ever. I stick to my good, old-fashioned builders tea with 2 sugars and a dash of milk and don’t even think about the other tea possibilities which are out there. Until I was given the chance to work with We Are Tea – an independent, ethical tea brand who very kindly sent me some different flavoured teas to try which were very much out of my comfort zone.

I really liked be packaging of these individual teabags; I thought they looked very sophisticated and I like the coloured fonts on the front too. I think packaging can say a lot about a brand and I very much thought that they’re a company that work to high standards because of the look of their packaging. Never underestimate the little details folks!

They sent me 7 different teas; – which was very lovely of them and I like that they sent me a wide range of teas which are quite obviously going to be wildly different from each other. That way, I can really get the full tea experience! Having not really ever drank these types of teas before, I did learn after the first 2 that I definitely needed to keep the bag in the water for longer than I was doing. I made myself the Super Berry one and my mum the Moroccon Mint flavour and whilst they both smelt very strong, the taste wasn’t quite as. But I definitely think this was down to me not leaving the bag in for long enough. I’m new to this!

So I did try all these teas they sent me; I really liked the Super Berry one (despite not pkeeping the bag in for long enough), the Chamomile one I just couldn’t get to grips with. I have tried Chamomile tea before – like once – and I didn’t like it then so I think that one is just down to personal prefernces. With these fruity and healthier tea, I definitely think that it takes a while toget used to them. Especially afer being so used to “normal” tea for so long. But I’ve heard the health benefits of Green tea, Chamomile tea and a whole bunch of others and it would seem almost a shame not to even try and like them for those reasons alone.

My expericne with We Are Tea has been a positive one – they’re a wonderful brand who are super helpfula nd friendly and always active on social media if you ever need to find them! Their range of teas is spectacular; definitely one to suit ever taste and need. As for me, I’ll keep trying to like these more “exotic” teas and I’ll certainly be trying some more.

So… question of the day: what teas do you like? Are you unadventurous like me or do you like a whole range of tea?

  3. I’m an Earl Grey man myself, but whenever I visit York I make a point of visiting Bettys tea rooms where they have the most marvellous selection of teas from all over the world – Highly Recommended!

    1. Oh thanks for the recommendation! If I ever find myself in York I’ll keep that in mind (:

  4. Hi Jenny! I am just like you. Loves tea the old fashion way. English tea with 2 sugars and a dash of milk. Love this post and that you tried something different. Looks yummy too x

  5. I do like a good fruity tea to be fair but I really don’t like regular old English breakfast tea so these would be interesting to try!

    1. What?! I reckon I could make you a tea you’d like… I am the QUEEN at tea (normal tea). However anything other than normal tea I can’t do haha 😂

  6. Love your blog posts Jenny 👌🏼

    1. Thank you (:

  7. I love trying new teas! But I do always have one pack of normal green tea in the house cause I need my cup of green tea in the morning hehe!

    1. I’d love to be able to drink green tea in the morning!

  8. I generally find that taking time to make a brew is a time to stop and take stock of everything, take a break or just enjoy being in moment. Bring on tea time!

    1. Yes! I love this!

  9. Hi, I love my cups of tea. You just can’t beat a nice cup of tea with a friend catching up.

    1. Very true; tea often makes everything better! (: xx

      1. Sure does 😊

  10. I have to be honest….I don’t really care for tea😳 my roommate in college made me sleepytime tea and I had to sneak down the hallway to dump it down the sink🙈 it was just nothing I was used to. I wish I did like tea! Fruity teas sound like they would be so good! I just haven’t been brave enough to try any!

    1. What on earth is sleepytime tea?! I have never heard of that phrase before in my life – is that a special sort of tea? Haha 🙊 xxx

      1. Hahah well I’m in America, so maybe it’s just a thing over here😂 it’s a tea that’s supposed to help calm you down and ready for bed. http://www.celestialseasonings.com/products/herbal/sleepytime-classic

  11. I actually don’t like normal tea but like green tea and jasmine tea, mind you I did have green tea from a restaurant once that was hideous, I don’t know what they did to it 🙂

    1. You don’t like normal tea?!?! Oh my goodness me I think I’m gonna faint. I have never tried Jasmine tea so maybe that’s next on my list xx

      1. Haha yeah one of those weird ones 😛 it’s really nice I couldn’t drink it all the time but every now and again it’s good 🙂

  12. This post is just perfect for me!! Tea is amazing! I am not that adventurous.. usually early grey! I do like berry tea! Or lemon and green tea! But yeah.. this is awesome! I wish I spent my time reviewing teas.. if only it fitted in with a fertility blog!!! 😂

    1. Haha I’m sure you could definitely fit that in somehow – how to relax when you’re stressed and include them? That’d certainly fit (: xxx

      1. Oh absolutely!!! You’ve hit the nail on the head!

  13. This past year I’ve gone looseleaf tea mad and my favourites are Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Apple & Cinnamon Green and White tea. Keep trying new ones, also when making green tea don’t use boiling water as it will taste bitter use water off boil about 80 degrees.

    1. Thanks for the tip! What is white tea? xxx

  14. I love tea! Peppermint is one of my favorites… and blueberry tea. Blueberry tea is amazing!

    1. Okay blueberry tea sounds REALLY nice!

      1. It is!!!

  15. I do like tea, especially herbal & fruit ones! Will have to check these out 👍

    1. I want to love fruit ones more!

  16. Completely unadventurous in this house. Though I do drink decaff when I’m trying to be healthy. But as it’s disguised as normal tea does that even count?

    1. Haha that definitely counts 😉 xx
