Here’s How You Can Help Out Young Aussies’ Mental Health Journeys With Yr 3pm Cuppa Tea

MOOD tea mental health

There’s nothing better than indulging in a three o’clock cuppa on a blustery winter day. It’s wholesome, comforting and innocently fills the ‘little treat’ box we’re all trying to fill.

It’s the simplest form of serotonin booster — which is exactly why MOOD tea is such a game changer.

MOOD tea is a social enterprise that launched back in early 2021 with the goal of actively helping young folks struggling with their mental health. It does this in two ways — the teas are made with ingredients that are known to have positive benefits, and all profits go towards funding youth mental health projects.

If you’re a disciple of chamomile, earl grey or peppermint, MOOD tea is now available across 865 Woolworths stores across the country, meaning there’s never been a better time to switch up your routine.

Chris Freel, CEO of UnLtd and MOOD says that the expansion of the product into Woolworths will “have a flow-on effect to help even more young lives who benefit from their charity partner programs,” which we absolutely love to see. Since its launch, MOOD’s profits have gone towards front-line mental health support systems such as batyr, The Sebastian Foundation and BackTrack.

Each tea features unique ingredients aimed to help improve your mood. Like Ashwagandha Root to reduce stress, Siberian Ginseng to promote mental alertness and Skullcap Root to promote sleep.

We’ve had a packet of the ‘Get On Up’ pineapple and cinnamon flavour on rotation here in the PEDESTRIAN.TV office, and I can attest to the fact that it slaps. Seriously, it tastes like a drinkable hot cross bun, not to mention the packaging is absolutely adorable as well.

Early last year, we sat down with founder Jenni Hayward ahead of MOOD’s launch to chat about why raising mental health awareness amongst young folks is so important.

“Whilst there is still a lot of work to be done, young people are leading the way in embracing openness and vulnerability when it comes to sharing their mental health journeys. We want to normalise talking about mental health – it shouldn’t be any different to talking about your physical health,” she said.

You can suss out the range online, and a box of ten will only set you back $7, making it inflation-budget-friendly and a generous addition to your weekly shop.
