A little story about our sponsors:


Chief Tea Officer Tina was inspired by Taiwanese bubble tea concept and British tea drinking culture to develop a delicious, well-balanced tea latte beverage. With her love for a quality cuppa and her desire to make a positive impact on society, Tina made a career switch from IT to just tea, and HumaniTea was born! A proud social enterprise, HumaniTea supports wellbeing and sustainability initiatives through wholesome tea. Spreading Me Time, Tea Time, Any Time, we encourage people to take tea breaks throughout the day and night to find mindfulness.

Tackling the problem of obesity-causing sugary soft drinks, we craft the UK’s 1st chilled ready-to-drink plant-based tea lattes bottled into recyclable aluminium cans. Brewed with actual tea leaves, creamy oat milk, and ethically sourced, quality ingredients, our refreshing Matcha and Earl Grey Oat Milk Tea Lattes exclude artificial flavours and emulsifiers, contain low sugar and low calories, and provide boost of antioxidants and natural energy without a caffeine crash. We use oat milk instead of dairy, which is perfect for people who are vegan or lactose-intolerant, because oat milk is one of the most eco-friendly milks available in terms of both emissions and water usage.
