The Prize

With an impressive range of artisan teas, ethically sourced from producers across the world, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to which We Are Tea to brew. For teas that look as good as they taste, try the pretty whole rose buds or whole chamomile flowers. For a refreshing and healthy kick, pick the gunpowder supreme, whilst tea connoisseurs will love the large-leaved, full-bodied and honey-like, yellow gold oolong.
