About Us

The Better Tea Co. was founded to help people take care of their mental health and wellbeing.

The handcrafters (and regular testers) of Better Tea Co. offer a growing range of wellness teas that are hand-blended in New Zealand.

Tea is well known for its calming and medicinal properties and when combined with stress-reducing steps, such as deep breathing and focusing on your senses, tea is an excellent addition to your calming ritual. 

We’re incredibly environmentally conscious. Our packaging is entirely recyclable and reusable. We also support local when we’re sourcing our packaging and ingredients, buying from Kiwi companies producing high-quality, beautiful creations.

More than Tea

We are dedicated to supporting mental health and all those who are affected by it, whether directly or indirectly and donate 5% of our profit directly to the New Zealand Mental Health Foundation.

We want to connect people with the support and recovery opportunities they need while continuing to encourage talking openly about mental illness and what it's really like for those who experience it.


I created the Better Tea Company after looking for a natural, herbal solution to help manage my own mental health.

I come from an incredibly stressful corporate background, with stress and anxiety being part of my everyday life.
I needed a solution, one that was effective, yet delicious.

Once I found that solution, I wanted to share it with others and now offer a collection of wellness teas that help support a mindful and healthy life.

I welcome you to discover our range and create your own daily tea ritual."
