The Daintree Tea Company is located on the Cubbagudta Plantation, situated in the heart of the Daintree Wilderness area in North Queensland. High rainfall of around 4 metres per annum and a temperature range of 25 to 35 degrees, along with granite alluvial red soils, all combine to make the perfect growing environment for a unique tasting tea, free from tannic acid and pesticide residues. These conditions result in a product which provides the discerning tea drinker with a more natural flavoured and environmentally friendly tea.

Established in 1978 by the Nicholas family, who still own and operate the business, their home overlooks the processing plant, down to the tea hedges used to produce the green leaf which is processed and packaged on the property.  ‘Cubbagudta’ means ‘rainy place’ in the language of the local Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people.  Harvesting plucks the soft green shoots on a regular basis, approximately two weeks apart. Once plucked, the young leaf is transported to the processing factory, where it is firstly withered, then crushed, oxidised, dried, sorted and packaged.  A mere 24-hours passes, from the time the leaf is first picked to packaging , ensuring one of the freshest tea products available on the Australian Market.
