A word from the boss

Hi I’m Kate, I started The Vegan Teahouse in July 2012 shortly after I became a vegan and realised there weren't many vegan options around that didn’t cost the planet, my body or my wallet! All I wanted was a brownie! So I decided to make my own.

So with the never ending strength and support of my beautiful family & mates plus ongoing puppy cuddles, I started and haven't looked back.

It’s been an amazing journey so far, I've met some incredible people, learnt heaps and I pinch myself daily to make sure I’m not dreaming! I get to do something that I’m passionate about every day. How cool is that! Thanks for coming along for the ride – Kate xx

About The Vegan Teahouse

The Vegan Teahouse has a vision, to reduce the incidence and impact of animal cruelty by providing a fun, local and yummy approach to nourishment, we are purveyors of fine vegan eats and hand crafted loose leaf tea blends.

Having started our journey with a market in Sydney's Newtown, we are now based out of MAKER Kitchen. A shared commercial kitchen, education space and coffee bar co-owned by Kate and her business partner Annabelle of My Little Panda Kitchen. We are growing, experimenting with new ideas and loving every second.

Our big thing is to provide affordable yummy food, it’s about accessibility –  Our hand made treats are always vegan, gluten free & refined sugar free & our loose leaf teas are caffeine free & blended using Ayurvedic principals, which means that almost everybody can enjoy them without worry.

We have always been big on supporting local business and good sustainable practice! We harvest the lemon myrtle for our Camille tea from trees on Lord St in Newtown, we waste as little as possible and are avid recyclers & composters!

We want to challenge the TRADITIONAL BELIEF that food must have dairy, refined sugar and eggs in it to taste good. We think we are doing it!
