Madura - Excellence in Tea
As Australian pioneers of eco-sensitive tea cultivation, we make pure, natural tea that is unrivalled in freshness and flavour.
Naturally low in caffeine, high in antioxidants and full of flavour, Madura tea is cultivated in harmony within the world heritage rainforests and unpolluted rivers of the Tweed Valley, near Murwillumbah.
Our plantation offers a safe haven for native flora and fauna and is home to more than 250,000 tea bushes, providing a naturally occurring ‘carbon sink’ for the region.
Madura is Australia’s first sub-tropical tea plantation, established by a third-generation tea planter from Ceylon in the late 1970s. Ten years later, the company pioneered production of Australian green tea, recognising its natural health benefits.
Today, Madura is owned by four local families and remains Australia’s foremost wholly owned and operated tea company.
We blend and package more than 24 tea styles in loose leaf, teabag and silk infuser– from traditional brews such as English Breakfast and Earl Grey, to exotic blends including Green Tea infused with locally grown Lemon Myrtle.
The teas we import to blend with our own are sourced directly and only from estates that share the Madura commitment to ethical and sustainable tea farming and production practices, with a primary focus on people, environment and quality.
Our blended tea is rigorously tested for contaminants, and packed at the Madura estate to guarantee its quality from plantation to cup.
We also ensure through routine independent testing that Madura tea maintains a naturally low caffeine level of around 2.8% – making it the tea of choice for a healthy lifestyle.
At Madura, there is no compromise on quality.
