SLEEP for Good NightWe Are Tea
CATCH SOME ZZZs - THE BEST TEA TO HELP YOU SLEEP
There aren't many things that a good night's sleep can't fix, so we created this ultimate night time blend to help you along the way. Settle your mind, sink into pillow and let this herbal infusion melt the pressure away. No sheep counting required!
Fun fact: stop your gadgets from keeping you up at night by having screen free time before settling down to sleep. The blue light given off by LED screens on laptops, tablets & phones can slow down the production of melatonin (this is the hormone that tells our body and brain it’s time to sleep – it’s the same reason that jet lag and flying over time zones messes up our body clock!)
Chamomile, lavender, rose, holy basil.
Chamomile tea has high levels of powerful antioxidants & works at relaxing the muscles in the body by soothing the nervous system, calming muscle spasms and helping you to relax in the evening. It can also be commonly used to relieve low level stress induced anxiety and help to reduce cortisol in the body.
Lavender is a wonder herb used for its sleep inducing qualities as well as being a well-known stress reliever in aromatherapy. According to a study at Southampton University, lavender was shown to increase your sleep quality by 20%.
Rose contains high amounts of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. When used aromatically, rose calms and soothes the mind. There have been studies to show that the oil extracted from rose petals can induce sleep and calm the mind.
Holy Basil is different to the basil we grow in our garden. A natural substance that helps your body adapt to stress, promotes mental balance and improve sleep quality. It can be used to lower elevated cortisol and regulate blood sugar.
Our resealable pouches contain 12 biodegradable pyramid tea bags. Our plastic free tea bags are made from soilon, a bi-product of corn starch and can fully biodegrade under the correct conditions in 3 – 6 months.
THE PERFECT BEDTIME DRINK
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!
