Our Values

From the very beginning, Love Tea was created with personal values distilled into purpose. Purpose to live by the values that we believe are inherent in all of us.

To have a positive impact on the world we love and those we share it with.

This very purpose manifests itself in the choices we make in our operations each day, in our supply chain, our certifications, partnerships and in our friendships.

Organic

When we were studying Naturopathy in 2006, the word organic had a different meaning to what it does today. Big corporations didn’t need to include it in their offerings and organic t shirts weren’t yet on trend. Today, with the growing demand for more sustainable, and at the very least, more responsible business, organic is here to stay. It has paved the way for the next step of sustainable agriculture, which is to not only choose organic, but also regenerative by nature.

At Love Tea we choose to use high quality, certified organic ingredients in our products. We believe organic ingredients taste better, are better for your health and are better for the environment. Our products are not grown with synthetic fertilisers or herbicides, have no hidden ingredients, and have no additives or artificial flavours. They simply contain pure and natural ingredients just as nature intended.

Fair trade

We believe trading fairly and with integrity, really should be the only way we work together as nations, organisations, human beings and inhabitants of our home planet.

Unfortunately, changing unjust industries that were established in a different era, will take time and effort. We don’t underestimate the collective effort we can all bring and the positive change we can all make, simply by the products we choose to support.

At Love Tea we choose to fairly source the majority of our ingredients directly from the growing communities and cooperatives who produce them. We pay additional premiums for the ingredients grown on fair trade farms, and we are continually learning how we can have a more meaningful and positive impact on the lives of growers and their families at origin. Our goal is to have every relevant component in our supply chain sourced as a fair trade minimum.

For The Planet

We truly love our home planet. We want to look after it and live harmoniously within it.

We believe we can be part of the positive change to look after our mother earth, by improving the way we conduct ourselves and our businesses while we’re here.

At Love Tea we are dedicated to donating 1% of annual revenues to a range of environmental organisations as part of our commitment to 1% for the Planet. We believe it is our environmental responsibility to reduce our negative impact on the environment and continue to offer our support to not-for-profit organisations who have a single motivation, which is to solve the environmental crisis for future generations.

Our health

Our goal is to design products which support each individual on their journey to wellness, and ultimately help them become the best version of themselves. Our founding Naturopath, Emma Watson, continues to put an extensive amount of time, energy and care into researching the therapeutic efficacy of each of our unique products. Our intention is to create products which offer optimum therapeutic benefit, whilst maintaining exceptional flavour.

Created with care

We create our products with care and the very best intention. From the development and design process to packing and shipping, we care deeply about the choices we make and the impact on the world around us. Care truly is, at the centre of our every action.

Starting with a big dream in a small home kitchen, we have evolved into a more specialised arrangement today. We skilfully craft, blend and pack each of our products in Melbourne. We are a family owned and run business, and we are proud to be producing our products in our home country, Australia.

Love Tea acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which our company is located and where we operate our business. We pay our respects to their Elders both past and present. We recognise the ongoing connection of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to their Country.
