A Cuppa Down Under

Australians love to have their daily cuppa. In fact, in an informal survey conducted by Bushells Tea, Aussies drink around five cuppas a day. There are certainly reasons that people should. During the reign of the Han Dynasty over China, tea was first understood as a medicinal aid. Today, both traditional and modern medicine continues to praise the benefits of tea. The glutamic acid analogue Theanine is present in tea and allows one to feel relaxed as well as observant.

The tea giant Lipton is a United Kingdom based firm who produces both ready-to-drink and hot leaf tea products. Lipton is owned by the dual-listed Dutch and British firm Unilever, and is a company whom many individuals trust to provide their daily cuppa. The Lipton Company has been recently stating how sustainable agriculture has become a goal for the firm, considering that many of their plantations are in foreign nations. Ostensibly, the company has requested that tea estates that work with it should be rain forest certified.

Tetley was founded in Yorkshire in the early nineteenth century. In the early twenty-first century, however, the company was given a radically new outlook as the Indian Tata Group purchased Tetley. Many of its Asian holdings were thus formed into the pre-existing Tata Tea Limited, which is now also known as Tata-Tetley. Tetley today is the largest tea company in the United Kingdom, and continues to maintain a strong Australian presence.

Like Lipton, Bushells is a part of the Unilever Group. However, the Bushells name is an Australian brand with a uniquely Australian history. Interestingly enough, this may be increasingly important as the Bushells firm reports that the way in which most Aussies enjoy their cuppa these days is in a uniquely Australian fashion. In 1883 Alfred Bushell founded the first Bushell’s shop in Queensland and just like the tea drinkers of yesteryear, modern Australians continue to sing the praises of this firm. The company is socially responsible, and thus has provided funds through its Community Cash program, which has benefited many community causes. It is also a sponsor of the Driver Reviver program and has given many drivers a free cuppa through this plan.

Some individuals have stressed the concern that tea contains a higher amount of caffeine than does coffee. However, since a lower amount of dry tea is needed to brew a cuppa than the amount of dry coffee to brew a beaker of coffee, tea ends up actually containing a far lower amount of caffeine than its counterpart. Moreover, with tea’s health benefits, there is little continued concern over its consumption. Tea is a wholesome drink, and the high quality of Bushells makes a cuppa that much more enjoyable.
