When thinking of tea production, Australia might not be the first country that comes to mind, but it boasts a thriving tea industry gaining popularity among tea enthusiasts. Australian black tea, in particular, stands out with its distinct flavour profile and locally sourced production.
Across various regions such as Northern NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, and Queensland, Australia produces two main types of tea – Australian black tea and Australian green tea. The country's tea producers are typically small-scale, crafting limited quantities that are sold through boutique outlets. Among the popular black tea varieties is the Australian Daintree Black Tea, cultivated in Far North Queensland's tropical region. Named after the UNESCO World Heritage site, Daintree Rainforest, this Australian black tea offers a medium-strength brew with lower caffeine and tannin levels compared to other black teas. Its smooth, slightly sweet flavour, enriched with earthy undertones, beautifully captures the essence of the Australian bush.
Venturing into the green tea realm, the Australian Sencha Green Tea from Victoria's Alpine Valleys region stands out. While similar to Japanese Sencha in flavour characteristics, it boasts a softer character, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a distinctive Australian green tea option.
At Tea Lovers Australia, we sell a wide range of home-grown Australian black tea and green teas varieties. Among the sought-after Australian black tea blends are Australian Daintree, Australian Bushfire Caravan, Australian Breakfast, Australian Lemon Myrtle, Australian Mint, Australian Chai, and Australian Lavender, each offering a unique and enjoyable tea experience.
Tea Lovers Australia also takes pride in its exceptional Australian Caravan blend, infusing mild smoky flavours reminiscent of billy tea over a campfire. Additionally, popular blends like Australian Lavender, Australian Mint, and Australian Chai incorporate lavender petals, fresh peppermint, and chai spices, resulting in a refreshing and aromatic tea journey.
Although Australia's tea production may be modest, the commitment to high-quality, sustainable tea cultivation through eco-friendly practices ensures an ethically produced and delicious tea for consumers. In an ever-growing trend, more tea enthusiasts are seeking teas that have been ethically sourced, with careful consideration for the sustainability of the natural environment.
