Nerada Tea has over 1,000 acres of planted tea on the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland and produces approximately 1.5 million kilos of black tea a year – that’s about 750 million cups of tea. Nerada Tea’s visitors’ centre (located on the plantation) is open to the public Monday – Friday.
Please note our Visitors Centre is closed in February. Visitors can discover how tea is grown and processed on the viewing platform and see the factory operating, buy fresh tea or a special gift or simply relax and enjoy a Devonshire tea… Fairtrade and the environment are at the heart of the company.
Nerada Tea supports the Fairtrade concept which ensures growers in developing countries get a fair price for what they grow and the company does not use pesticides on its Australian grown tea.
Unlike traditional tea growing countries such as Asia and Africa where the leaves are harvested by hand, Nerada Tea has sophisticated mechanised harvesting machinery that can harvest up to 4,000 kg
