Brewed By Belinda is an award-winning boutique tea company creating organic artisan loose-leaf tea blends and herbal/fruit tisanes. The company was started by Belinda Hellyer in 2015. Belinda holds both a Certified Tea Master and Certified Tea Blender qualification with Australian Tea Masters.
Our fancy suite of blends is inspired by “the arts” and is the place where Belinda’s two great life passions – tea and the arts – pash.
Belinda’s background is in the arts as a performer, producer and arts manager. She has always taken a creative approach to her work armed with a pot of tea by her side. She has loved tea forever - it brings people together, soothes a weary soul and can ignite a creative spark.
Each of our 16 teas have been deeply thought through and conceived. Many of our teas have been specially created to support the mind, body and soul in the creative and artistic process. With others, we've put an arty spin on your favourite traditional brews. Above all, the teas are delicious, healthy and celebrate wellbeing as well as high kicks. Our range is simultaneously elegant and a little bit funny.

All of the teas and tisanes are hand blended with genuine jazz hands in small batches.
All blends are made with 100% ORGANIC ingredients. There are no nasties. We care greatly about the land, the farmers, the pickers, their families, you and your family.
We have chosen premium ingredients at every opportunity. Our teas are of gorgeous quality from some of the most adored organic tea estates in the world. We strive to give you beautiful fresh tea, herbs, spices, peels and petals to bring you health, nourishment, calm and creativity.
We do not use any added flavours. Flavour is for punks ;) We believe that ingredients in their purest form create the most beautiful brews. All of our blends are VEGAN FRIENDLY.
Our teas can be bought packaged in three ways. Our gift style canisters, handmade in Japan by skilled craftsmen, are the most beautiful thing and are 100% recyclable. They have a gold metal inner plug in lid to keep your tea ultra fresh. We also sell in foil lined, air tight zip lock stand up pouches (say that 3 times!) in both standard and bulk sizes. We care greatly for our environment and, as such, we are happy to offer a refill service for your canisters or pouches.
To make things easy for you to get brewing, we also have a small range of lovely teaware for sale. Oooohhh fancy…
We believe a glimmering creative spark is at the essence of each of us and if we can cut through the demands of daily life and connect with ourselves, and the things that inspire us, creative wisdom will follow. We believe tea is the answer.
