Mayde Tea | Kate Dalton is helping us heal through the natural properties of plants.
After facing her own health crisis, Kate began exploring naturopathy and natural plant-based remedies to heal herself. Along the journey, while studying and managing a café in Bondi, she started experimenting with herbal tea, which after seeing incredible results for herself – she started sharing with friends.
From there Mayde Tea was born.
With simple beginnings and a one-woman-show, Mayde tea is now stocked in well over 300 retailers across Australia, and hold sustainability on the forefront of their vision.
What struck me as we chatted through this interview was how strongly Kate stuck to her values, and the integrity of what she was creating in the process of building Mayde Tea. From the tea itself, right through to the sustainably sourced packaging it reached her customers in.
As with all great businesses, it certainly hasn’t come without its challenges, but Kate’s steadfast belief in keeping her product as close to its natural origin as possible, has guided her strongly to create this much loved Byron Bay Based brand.
“Mayde Tea was born out of a deep love for the natural healing properties of plants. We cultivate simple daily rituals to enrich your wellbeing.”
