​The Wandering Teapot is a great tasting tea brand that goes beyond just being a quality tea shop. Our tea makes a positive impact for people struggling with poverty and homelessness by giving 100% of profits back to life-changing projects.

Our social enterprise was proudly established in 2018 as an initiative of the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre to help combat the crippling rates of youth unemployment, poverty and homelessness that affects this beautiful region.  With the overwhelming support of local business, sponsors and government we have been able to launch two tea house cafes over the last 12 months, and establish our own tea manufacturing facility to package the finest selection of teas.

This project is the building foundation to provide an empowering workplace for vulnerable youth to learn life-long skills whilst helping others in the community. We are so proud of our first intake of youth crew, who have contributed to bring to light this wonderful enterprise. 

Join our mission today we promise you will enjoy the taste whilst doing good for others!

I became homeless and I suffered with anxiety and depression.  Since working at The Wandering Teapot my confidence has built so much.
