Koala Tea Story In the years before 1993 â€“ the year Howard Rubin & Elle Fikke founded The Koala Tea Company, Australia had no organised herb growing industry, and no Australian made or Australian owned herbal teas.The few herbal teas that were available were all imported. Howard and Elle left Europe in 1986 when the Chernobyl disaster contaminated their herb farm in Wales, UK. where they had set up an alternative health clinic and a herbal tea company. They decided to start a new life and business in Oz. But embarking on their project with no supporting industry or assistance, Howard & Elle found they had some serious work to do.
When they found there was no herb growing industry in Australia, Howard & Elle had to organise and show farmers how to grow organic herbs. They began building a working model organic herb farm on their new property. As news spread, so too did interest from farmers wanting to know how they could grow organic herbs. Starting with 15 members in 1987 the Organic Herb Growers Association Inc. was established and in 2007 their organisation counted 665 members.
An Australian Herb Growing Industry To encourage their fledgling herb growers, Howard and Elle set up a new business, Herb Farms Australia, which marketed the fresh herbs. Over a relatively short time Herb Farms Australia grew with domestic and export markets, and when major herbal companies began showing interest in Australian grown medicinal herbs, they saw this as a signal that the time was right to start the Koala Tea Company.

About Koala Top One Tea -No worries No worries tea is the first organic tea Koala tea released. Marketing in Australia for 25 years and selling as champion with good reputation, Koala tea also sells its tea to the world. The exclusive formula with four herbs in No Worries tea originated from Howardâ€™s love to his wife. In 1983, since the British farmer Howardâ€™s wife had been long-term depressed because of early menopause, they saw doctors all over the Europe. However, due to the side effects of various drugs, his wife became worse and more depressed.
At the time when Howard was sparing no effort to seek herbal natural therapies, Elizabeth II was forced to inherit the throne because of her father George VIâ€™s death. Plus political pressure, Elizabeth II suffered from body and mind imbalance along with torment. Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain immediately blended chicory root, lemon balm, peppermint, lemongrass and other herbs as the formula to cure the queen. After drinking three times a day for a while, Elizabeth II recovered sooner than expected.
No Worries Tea was the very first tea which Koala Tea created. Anyone who comes to Australia will hear the phrase “no worries” spoken over and over by most people. Therefore we believe that “no worries” can be the best representative of Australians. Moreover, Australians are crazy about surfing. That’s the reason why we combined this with a great picture of our koala on a surfboard. As the name implies it is a relaxing tea.
We made the recipe using herbs which will generally relax you, including organic lemongrass, organic lemon balm, organic roasted chicory root and organic peppermint. Having no caffeine, this organic herbal tea was the first Australian herbal tea to be accepted into the Australian supermarkets. It has been our number one best seller for the past 20 years. Even Bob Carr, the premier of NSW, bobbed up at Koala Tea Company for this cup of tea.
Our Pride During the past 30 years, Howard dedicated to the establishment and development of the Australian organic industry. In 2016, Howard Rubin was presented â€œHall of Fameâ€? in Australian Organic Annual Awards 2016 to thank his contribution. Australian Prime Minister John Howard together with previous Australian Agriculture Ministers once visited Koala Tea and gave organic herbal tea the highest affirmation.
Elizabeth II visits Australia In October 2011, Elizabeth II visited Australia in her role as Queen of Australia and Head of the Commonwealth. At a reception in her honour held at Parliament House in Canberra on 21 October 2011, the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, described the Queen as "a vital constitutional part of Australian democracy". Elizabeth II and the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard drink Koala â€œNo worriesâ€? Tea
