We Are Tea

Posted on January 27, 2016

The name kind of suggests what We Are Tea do, and although the people working there are not strictly ‘made’ of tea, they do provide award winning whole leaf tea. Different to the usual ‘dust tea’ that brews very quickly, whole leaf needs to steep for longer, allowing the tea to better infuse, giving a fuller and more complex flavour – or so I’m told.

I mention this because before Christmas I was contacted by We Are Tea, they’d seen four portraits I took a few years back for Contact the Elderly, and wanted to use them on the packaging of a new line of tea. All profits made were given to Contact the elderly. A worthy cause and some great tea, I’d drink to that.
