  • Creating the perfect tea by trying out over 100 different recipes!

More about Lauren & Elena:

Once upon a time in Melbourne 2 little (and very adorable) girls were born. They had a strong passion for tea that only got stronger as they grew older. They spent their childhoods attending every tea party that was on offer. And when no tea parties were on offer they would host their own. One summer when the temperatures got too high to handle the two girls had to make their teas over ice to keep all their friends cool. Their friends loved the new iced teas and the more tea parties they hosted the more the word spread of their magical teas. People began to travel far and wide just to taste their iced teas. The two girls grew up to be Lauren & Elena, also known as ‘Those Girls’ who make the amazing iced teas.
