Tastes Like

Created in collaboration with Tate Modern, this blend is inspired by the work of Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama, to complement her sell out Infinity Mirror Rooms exhibition. It is a super sparkly fruit blend packed full of cherries that brews a pinky red whilst smelling & tasting just like cherry pie.

The blend is a nod to her famous pink & red dot art as well as her playfulness with colours & shapes. It also contains gold sprinkles that shimmer when brewed to reflect the visual spectacle of the Shimmer rooms. The blend works great iced, hot or cold brewed and can even be enjoyed with a splash of coconut milk

You can try the Tate Modern’s limited edition Shimmer CosmopoliTEAn, as part of their dining experience based on her work until the end of the exhibition. Or you can make it at home using the recipe here.

Love this Arty tea

This is a great combo for me as an art lover. Love the collaboration with Tate and the flavour is a great substitute for cherry coconut bliss which I was gutted was limited edition.

Awesome as a cold brew

This has become my favourite cold brew tea. Love it in water, I'll be sad when I run out.
