We are an average family of four, living on the Gold Coast. We are mindful of well-being and are attentive to living a healthy lifestyle. Having a Japanese heritage, drinking herbal tea has always been a big part of my life. And as such I have always been on the look out for something new and different to try. Then I came across lemon myrtle tea. It's rich aroma and taste had me hooked from the first sip. After realizing it also had amazing health benefits, I knew I had to introduce this beautiful beverage to as many like minded tea lovers and people conscious of their health. Since then Chaya was born, and I have been busy ever since selling lemon myrtle tea.
