Organic, Fairtrade and made with Love

Love Tea loose leaf products are hand blended here in Australia. We use a large range of herbs tea and spices from local and abroad, all of which are certified organic. The black tea we use is certified fairtrade, grown bio-dynamic and carbon neutral, and of course all our blends are made with one essential ingredient…Love.

Organic

Through every stage of production from plantation all the way to your cup, ingredients used in our blends are certified organic.

Choosing organic ingredients is a more sustainable option, as many of the harsh chemicals and pesticides used in conventional farming are absent in organic farming methods. By not using harsh chemicals, there is less energy and resources used in producing them and zero residues left to potentially contaminate the environment as well as resulting in cleaner, fresher tea with a stronger natural taste.

“If you’re taking the time to brew a pot of tea then it should be the finest tasting and highest quality product possible.”

Go organic…. better for our environment, better for us all.

Naturopathic blends

The Love Tea range has been designed by Emma Watson (Bachelor & Advanced Diploma of Health Science Naturopathy) BSc NAT.
Each ingredient has been carefully selected with not only the finest taste, but also the greatest therapeutic benefit in mind.

Australian Family Business

By choosing Love Tea blends you are supporting a small family business, whose aim is to provide the world with the finest blend of organic, fairtrade ingredients for you to share with the people you love.

Fairtrade

At Love Tea we have chosen to source as many ingredients as possible direct from the farms, plantations and regions that produce them.

“our main selection principles are to buy ingredients that have a traceable Fairtrade practice in place.”

In the next 12 months we have grand plans for our own personal evaluation of all our direct fair trade supplier practices. We endeavor to bring you back a personal report, feedback and stories from the farmers and producers of the teas, herbs and spices that we all enjoy so much.

Fairtrade certification benefits marginalized producers and workers in four critical ways.

1. It provides producers with guaranteed prices that are higher than conventional world market prices, particularly in volatile tropical commodity markets.
2. It supports organisational capacity building for the democratic groups that are required to represent small-scale producers (via cooperatives) and workers (via unions).
3. It enhances production and marketing skills for participants and their families which extend beyond Fairtrade Certified production.
4. It provides a social premium to finance broader community development projects such as health clinics, schools, better roads and sanitation, and other social services.
