Let's Meet Love Tea

Love Tea is a Melbourne brand that was started in 2006 by two naturopath students, Emma Watson and Damien Amos. They started their business with clear ethics and values centred around quality product, responsible business, our health and very importantly our planet.

Over the years their business has grown and now they have a large stunning, range of loose and bagged tea all blended and packed in Australia.

Love Tea | Commitment To Organic

Love Tea have been committed to organic ingredients from the start of their journey. They are certified organic by ACO (Australian Certified Organic) and they source certified organic ingredients from all over the world.

Love Tea works direct with the growers and cooperatives to find the best ingredients possible. They pay fair trade premiums for the ingredients purchased from fair trade farms and continually strive to learn more about the challenges that the producers face.

Love Tea believe organic ingredients taste better, are better for your health and are better for the environment. In fact, their vision is that the term organic is no longer relevant, as the only inputs used in agriculture are those from natural origins.

Love Tea | Commitment To The Planet

Love Tea are very focused on our planet and environment and show their commitmet in many ways. Firstly their packaging is all biodegradable - the boxes, pyramid bags, even the tea bags.

The pyramid bags are made from a material called soilon which is made from plant starches, namely corn, beet and sugar cane. The bags are sealed using ultrasonic sealing so no glues or waxes are used. The bag used to keep the tea fresh is made from cello which is a biodegradable plant-based cellophane, made from renewable wood resources. Both items break down in a well functioning home composter. Love Tea boxes are recycled, biodegradable and all printed with vegetable inks too. Plus, everything is packed here in Australia to minimise on footprint. They are also members of 1% For The Planet. They donate 1% of their annual net revenues to a range of environmental organisations worldwide.
