Why Choose AUSTCS as a Charity
When we talk about tea in Australia, it can mean a wide range of products. From our traditional black, green, oolong, and white teas, all of which are produced from the Camellia sinensis leaves. We also enjoy a vast array of flavoured teas, as well as herbal and fruit infusions (tisane), and we are quite happy to refer to them all as tea.
Tea, can be enjoyed by every Australian, we can enjoy its benefits, its social aspects, the array of diverse tea cultures reflecting our multicultural population, we can even enjoy teas brewed for generations by the world’s oldest continuous culture, the sixty five thousand years of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples culture. Tea brings people together, culture helps build community and with your generous donations we can help Australians have a greater awareness of tea, its pleasures, benefits, and culture.
* AUSTCS is recognised as a charity through the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC), the Australian Tax Office (ATO) and
