Ethical
The Urban Cottage formulates products predominantly using Australian grown/sourced ingredients, with priority given to Australian businesses that employ, support, or partner with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander growers, suppliers, and communities. The brand makes and packages by hand in small batches to ensure high quality, zero waste products that contain nothing but organic and premium wild harvested botanicals.
Sustainable
The Urban Cottage sources ingredients/materials as close to them as possible in order to reduce their carbon footprint. The brand also sources from businesses that have eco and sustainable practices in place (solar power, rainwater collection, hand harvesting/drying/packing). Urban Cottage reuses incoming packaging for outgoing postage and/or completely plastic free postage materials, they package products in compostable, recyclable, or reusable materials, offer a jar return system to close the loop on packaging materials and finally they package their teas loose leaf to reduce environmental impact by encouraging home composting and zero waste tea-making.
Responsible
Urban Cottage donates a portion of every sale to Aboriginal, female led businesses, causes, and organisations around the country that offer healing services and support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. The brand also makes contributions to Pay the Rent.

What our experts say...

Review

I just love watching this brew in my clear teapot. It starts out pale blue, before a plume of bright red drops directly down from the diffuser. The dry aroma is as the blend looks – like freshly cut flowers. Upon brewing, I inhale the scent of spring blossoms on a summer breeze – wish I could bottle it! The flavour itself is subtle, floral, and cleansing. It’s not at all acidic like some rose and hibiscus blends can be. This is wonderful iced, too. I really appreciate that ingredients have been sourced and wild harvested in a way that benefits first nations growers, suppliers and communities, as well as the extra steps this small business takes to reduce waste and give back to first nations communities.

Review

This tea is lovingly designed for women – supporting balance, soothing the stomach and easing pain/cramps. The loose leaf mix consists of whole ingredients such as crimson rose petals, gulbarn leaves, and maarr grass which together create a truly beautiful and fragrant product. The rosey coloured tisane gives off light lemon and floral flavours and is the perfect addition to any self-care ritual. It is inspiring to see that The Urban Cottage focuses on supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through the local businesses they choose to partner with, as well as the charities they contribute to.
