Arakai Estate

Artisan Growers and Tea Makers

In the fertile soils of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Brendan and Kristie Collins are producing award winning teas from their picturesque tea plantation.

Featuring black and green teas that boast a subtle and complex mix of floral, aromatic & sweet notes.

Their Spring Flush Green & Spring Flush Black teas come from the first harvest in Spring after a Winter dormancy. This first Spring harvest is the prime cut of tea, prized around the world for the unique qualities of flavour, aroma and cup smell.

They only get one shot at this harvest and everything is put  into ensuring a uniform plantation and clean harvest. Many a late night is spent in the processing factory gently coaxing the finest qualities from the leaf.  It can take up to three days from harvest to the final dry – always tasting, smelling and sorting to ensure only the best leaves make it through the process!

From the late Spring, Summer and early Autumn harvests come their ‘Premium’ range of Green and Black tea. Using the same process and same high level of quality control in harvesting and sorting to create these light and refreshing teas.
