  • Are the AUSTCS seminars mainly business events?
    No! AUSTCS is open to all members of the Australian community. We hope the events we host will be filled with a good cross-section of enthusiasts, tea businesses and members of the community who have a connection or passion to see the development of a recognisable Australian tea culture. Without tea enthusiasts, there is no tea community.
  • Can I volunteer?
    Yes! AUSTCS is a voluntary run organisation and so we are always looking for new people to volunteer. In 2024 we particularly need your help, your skills, your time, to make a real difference to this unique organisation and its future sustainability. If you're interested in volunteering, drop us an email:
  • Will the Members annual general meeting (AGM) be held at the Seminar?
    No. AUSTCS now holds the AGM online, making it easier for those members who are not attending a seminar to still be involved and vote. All AUSTCS members will receive an email notification of the AGM, its time, date and private link for access. This email will be constitute your invitation.
  • Will there be a seminar or event held in 2024?
    No. Although, having said no AUSTCS will continue to support and promote members who wish to arrange events during 2024. Let's also not forget International Tea Day (ITD) which is held on the 21st May each year. AUSTCS will certainly be getting behind the day, as well as the promotion and support of any ITD events in Australia. Let us know if you have a tea related event or an ITD Tea Party planned. Contact
  • What is happening with AUSTCS?
    At the 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM). Those members who attended passed a motion which allows for a one year break from a regular AUSTCS year. Two Directors Amanda Low and David Lyons are investigating new ways for AUSTCS to move forward into the future. Amanda and David are also looking for volunteer assistance from you. Maybe you have skills, time or willingness to help them with this task. If so contact them Make 2024 a positive year for yourself and AUSTCS!
