Echinacea, rosehip, elderflower, olive leaf, calendula petals, hibiscus, holy basil.
Echinacea benefits include acting as an anti-inflammatory and fighting against skin problems such as Eczema, Psoriasis and skin infections. This wonder herb began life as an effective natural painkiller & is now used widely to prevent colds and flu.
Rosehip tea is a good source of vitamin C; amazingly rose hips contains 50% more vitamin C than oranges! Because of the high vitamin C content they are an excellent immune system booster. Regular intakes of rose hip extract has been linked to lowered cholesterol levels.
Elderflower due to its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties it can be used to treat sinus infections, the flu, common colds, skin irritations, stress, allergies and other respiratory issues. Elderflower tea has been known for its flu-fighting ability due to its high levels of vitamin C.
Olive Leaf extract benefits include cardiovascular and immune system support, as well helping to increase energy levels and promoting healthy blood pressure. The history of the olive leaf tea go way back to the 1800s where crushed leaves were used in medicinal tea to treat fevers and then later to treat the symptoms of malaria.
Calendula oil found in the petals has great healing abilities. It is a packed with antioxidants that can help heal skin wounds and burns. Additionally, calendula tea can help ease menstrual cramps.
Hibiscus flowers have inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Drinking hibiscus tea relieves high blood pressure and can help reduce cholesterol, as well as helping to keep the digestive system & immune system healthy.
Holy Basil tea is high in antioxidants and helps your body detox. The essential oils in Holy basil have antibiotic properties and can help prevent fungal, viral & bacterial infections.

THE PERFECT HERBAL TEA
Infuse in freshly drawn boiled water for 3 to 4 minutes.
Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your fruit tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooooooo!
GUILT FREE SIPPING - THE ETHICAL TEA PARTNERSHIP
We’re a nation of tea monsters consuming over 165 million cuppas every year and growing. To keep up with the worlds growing love affair with tea in a socially just and environmentally sustainably way, the Ethical Tea Partnership was formed. Working with individual tea estates, we help producers & smallholder farmers raise their performance against international social & environmental standards to produce ethical tea, as well as address key issues holding back tea sustainability in the global tea producing regions. Funded by us and the other members, this training and support is free for the tea producers (yay).
Last year we were in the office discussing single use plastics and knew that we had to address this in any way we could. We coined the umbrella term guilt-free sipping to cover all our commitments to the environment going forwards. One of the biggies is removing pesky plastic from our packaging completely this year, we already have 100% biodegradable and compostable teabags and takeaway cups.
We Are Tea has partnered with Amanda Hamilton to create a range of health and wellbeing teas, which use natural ingredients to do good AND taste great. The functional tea range takes a refreshingly no-nonsense, need-state-led approach to health and wellbeing. Staying clear of food fads and diets, the philosophy behind the Super Teas is that small, everyday changes can make a real, long-lasting difference. This could be taking the stairs instead of the escalator, walking instead of driving or switching out your morning cup of strong coffee for a delicious mug of Sleep, Soothe, Cleanse, Protect or Alert. Each herbal tea has a combination of carefully selected ingredients to help give your body and immune system that extra boost. Staying healthy has never been easier or tasted so good!
