Naturopath and co-founder of Love Tea, Emma Watson always knew she wanted to help people. From a young age, she had the innate desire to improve people’s health and wellness. This was the driving force for Emma to study Naturopathy.
“I am a big believer in nourishing your body as often as you can” Emma says.
“I have found that working with herbs and natural medicine is such a great way to help improve and optimise people’s health.”
During her second year of university in 2006, Emma started blending teas with an array of different herbs, trialling combinations and recipes to see what worked and what didn’t. After a lot of time and care perfecting the blends, Love Tea was born.
This was when Emma met co-founder Damien Amos, who was raised on a bio-dynamic farm in New South Wales.
“Damien had a great knowledge of herbs, organics and a real desire to create products with the least amount of negative impact on the environment. He also studied Naturopathy, being a natural extension of his upbringing.”
By 2012, Love Tea offered over twenty different teas, with the demand for holistic, certified organic teas growing rapidly. Five years on and today, Love Tea offers 72 unique tea blends, including immunity, digestive and liver cleanse – to name a few.
One of the most unique features of Love Tea is their dedication to being environmentally responsible.
“Damien ensures we source the highest quality certified organic ingredients. Most ingredients are sourced directly from communities who use sustainable practices and are certified fair trade, if and wherever possible.”
Furthermore, 1% of their annual net revenues are donated to different environmental organisations around the world, in an effort to reduce their negative impact on the environment.
“We visit tea plantations regularly which helps us stay connected to the growers and communities”
