TEA MATE Q&A
- It's just pure tea of the best quality, sourced from around the world. We use no additives (such sugar, colours or flavourings). - Wherever possible, we source tea from organic and sustainable farmers. - Did you know that many tea brands use plastics and micro-plastics in their tea bags? That's carcinogen in every cup, coupled with plastic that ends up in our environment. TEA MATE encourages loose leaf tea use and the tea bags we do sell or share are biodegradable and plastic free. - We support various causes such as planting trees, mens health and have sworn to give 1% of net sales to help the planet. - We're Australian through and through.

Tea mate was started by two friends who saw that tea didn't have to be with all the flowery branding, plastic tea bags and artificial flavours and colours. After one of the guys suffered post concussion syndrome from a snowboard accident and the doctor asked him to drink more tea, the health benefits and healing properties become clear. Couple the health with TEA MATE's co-founder wanting an alternative to coffee, tea started to become something before an xbox game, a backyard snowboard sesh, a conversation starter after a Saturday night. TEA MATE started with a true need to heal ourselves and has grown into a community of tea mates.

Cabarita Beach is between Byron Bay, Northern NSW and the Gold Coast, QLD, Australia.
Tamborine Mountains looks over the Gold Coast, QLD, Australia.
