Our Philosophy: Exploring the World of Loose Leaf Tea in Australia
With a shift toward healthier lifestyles, Australians are seeking loose-leaf tea as a healthy alternative to coffee and other high-sugar beverages.
We strongly believe in the health benefits of tea and herbs and use only the best organic loose tea leaves and botanicals to maximise their beneficial properties. Our organic loose leaf tea range includes herbal, green and black loose-leaf tea blends hand-curated on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
Why We Believe Loose Leaf Tea is the Best Choice
We like to offer the best loose leaf tea in Australia. Compared to tea bags, loose-leaf tea offers the tea drinker a more authentic tea experience and a healthier beverage.
Tea in commercial tea bags is generally lower in quality, freshness and is often from large plantations which use pesticides to grow their tea and herbs. The tea is also cut into very small unrecognisable pieces, in order to give instant flavour and strength.
Teabags have also been shown to contain plastic, in order to seal the bag and add to its durability. Loose-leaf tea, on the other hand, is plastic-free and can be brewed completely without using plastics.
Loose-leaf tea is also made with less processed tea leaves, so they retain more of their natural oils and deliver a fuller and more complex flavour. You will fall in love with the natural flavours of our loose-leaf tea blends and enjoy sipping them any time of day.
