Our Story

Mayde with Purpose

At Mayde Tea, our story is steeped in a profound appreciation for the natural magic that resides in the world of plants. We've embarked on a journey to cultivate simple daily rituals that elevate your well-being, and it all begins with a passion for harnessing the incredible healing properties of botanicals.

Naturopath & Nutritionist Kate Dalton, the heart and soul behind Mayde Tea, discovered the transformative power of tea on her personal health journey. Today, she ardently shares her love for plant-based healing and the art of natural living through our exquisite Mayde Tea collection. With unwavering conviction, Kate believes that Mother Nature offers us the finest resources for safeguarding our health

Our humble beginnings trace back to a small studio nestled in the serene beauty of Byron Bay in 2013. We’ve grown into a brand embraced by over 400 of the finest cafes, restaurants, health studios, and beauty salons. The recognition we've received for our best-selling Serenity and Chai Latte blends has been a testament to our commitment to quality and authenticity. And the blossoming Mayde Tea-loving community? It warms our hearts and fuels our passion.

As our tea range flourished, we enriched your brewing experience with timeless tea additions like our Stainless Steel Infuser, Iced Tea bottles, and more. Every step we take is guided by a profound purpose: to honour your health and tread gently upon the planet we call home.

A Journey of Healing and Discovery

The tale of Mayde Tea began over a decade ago, amongst pursuing a double university degree and a bustling cafe job. In the midst of this whirlwind, Kate Dalton found solace in crafting herbal blends to ease her own anxiety and digestive woes. Armed with the wisdom of herbal medicine from her studies, she marvelled at the transformative power of plants and the prospect of helping others facing similar health challenges.

The 23-year-old visionary who launched this enterprise could never have fathomed the incredible journey that lay ahead. What began as a personal hobby, a venture into the world of herbs, evolved into something truly extraordinary.

The concept of Mayde Tea germinated when Kate struggled to find a product that aligned with her needs – an organic, handmade herbal tea formulated by a qualified naturopath/herbalist. It had to be more than just tea; it had to be medicinal, eco-friendly, and deeply nourishing. Fueled by her commitment to her studies and her unwavering dedication, she decided to create it herself.

Along the way, Mayde Tea has forged remarkable collaborations with some of the most inspiring individuals and brands. Our product range expanded to include latte powders, quickly becoming some of our most beloved offerings. We even ventured into the world of ceramics and other tea-brewing accessories to complement our exquisite teas.

Each product we introduce to the world has been thoughtfully crafted and received with boundless love by our ever-growing Mayde Tea community. It's a journey of passion, purpose, and unwavering commitment to the transformative power of nature's gifts.

Our Philosophy

At Mayde Tea, our philosophy is deeply rooted in a profound respect for our planet and a passionate commitment to your well-being. Guided by these principles, we've crafted a set of values that define who we are and what we stand for.

Certified Organic Ingredients:
Nature is our greatest source of inspiration, and we believe in harnessing its purity. That's why we select only Certified Organic ingredients for our teas. From the moment they're cultivated to the final sip, you can trust that our ingredients are grown in harmony with nature.

Crafting teas is an art, and our skilled hands are at the heart of it. Every blend is meticulously crafted, ensuring a harmonious marriage of flavours and aromas that delight your senses.

Naturopath Formulated:
Our commitment to your well-being goes beyond the tea cup. Our blends are formulated by our founder and qualified naturopath, Kate Dalton, ensuring that each cup is infused with nature's healing wisdom.

Free From Artificial Colours and Flavours:
We believe in the unadulterated beauty of nature. Our teas are free from artificial colours and flavours, allowing you to experience the true essence of each ingredient.

Recyclable Packaging:
Sustainability is not an afterthought; it's woven into every aspect of our journey. Our teas are delivered in packaging that's not just eco-friendly but also recyclable, reducing our footprint on the planet.

Conscious Consumerism:
We recognise the impact of consumerism on our planet. We encourage our customers to make mindful choices, choosing products that align with their values. Our commitment to high-quality, multi-purpose products ensures they not only taste good and feel good for your body but also add aesthetic charm to your home.

Sustainable Production:
Our dedication to sustainability extends to the production process. We avoid ingredients and methods that don't align with our values, ensuring that every step of our tea-making journey honours the environment.

Offsetting Carbon Emissions:
Taking action to protect our planet is not just a philosophy; it's a commitment. That's why we've partnered with Greenfleet to offset our carbon emissions. A percentage of our profits each month contributes to planting biodiverse forests in Australia. These forests act as guardians, absorbing carbon from the atmosphere, enhancing soil and water quality, and providing vital habitat for native wildlife.

At Mayde Tea, our philosophy is more than words on a page; it's a way of life. It's a commitment to nurturing nature, honouring health, and leaving a positive imprint on our world. Join us on this journey as we sip tea and savour the beauty of a sustainable, harmonious future.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Mayde Tea acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community.
