Stone & Grove olive leaf teas is the latest brand from Boundary Bend Wellness, a subsidiary of Boundary Bend Limited, Australia's biggest olive farmers and owners of Australia's leading Extra Virgin Olive Oil brand Cobram Estate. So, you could say we know a thing or two about olives and their goodness.
First brewed in late 2018, Stone & Grove has a range of six brand-new olive leaf teas. Something we've been working on for a while. They include a traditional Olive Leaf Tea, an all-Australian Olive Leaf and Green Tea Sencha blend, plus four wellness tisanes - Energy, Detox, Women's Health and Immunity.
This isn't just another Instagram tea. Refreshing isn't it. Stone & Grove teas are made using our estate grown olive leaves from our trees in North-West Victoria, picked and handcrafted from tree to tea in 12 hours, and are specifically designed to promote general wellbeing (not to make you go to the toilet). Now, not everyone may know what antioxidants actually do, we can safely say they do good, and these teas contain a lot of natural antioxidants that are anti free radicals and anti 3pm-itis.
"We're thrilled to have crafted a premium tea range with the health and healing benefits of natural olive antioxidants to help people be their best. And in doing so, we're utilising our olive leaves and helping with the sustainability of our farms," says Tim Smith, Director of Stone & Grove.
We could keep going on about the benefits and using big antioxidant words like Oleuropein and Hydroxytyrosol, but it's best to see and drink for yourself.
