About us


Hi, my name is Amy and I am the Director of High Tea with Harriet, a family-owned, artisan tea company, with a unique range of truly enticing teas to try. Do you love tea? Love the wonderful ritual of tea? Love how one little cup can warm your heart and brighten your day? So do we! 

My love of tea began early on with much-loved visits to my grandmother. She just loved tea and at her house, tea and biscuits were always part of the experience of getting together. She had a beautiful old tea caddy that sat on her kitchen shelf and housed her special tea of the day. I would always look at the caddy with longing as I knew it meant an afternoon of tea and bikkies and chats out in the sunshine. It was these special moments that made me want to create my own a range of teas that was really special - delicious, high quality teas in hand-designed, classically elegant packaging. The ritual of tea is such a lovely thing and creates moments to remember. 



Amy worked as a writer and crew member for ABC TV Production for a decade before launching her tea company 5 years ago. She worked on various television shows including Spicks and Specks, Rove, Shaun Micallef's Mad as Hell, Talking 'Bout 'Your Generation, ABC News and Current Affairs, Letters and Numbers and The Einstein Factor. After a full year and half of research and design, Amy and Marcus launched High Tea with Harriet. 3 months later, their daughter was born (that was quite the multitask!). It has been a true voyage of hard work and discovery while we have been developing and growing our company over these years. We have come so far and we thank you for your support as we head into a new and dynamic phase of our business. We are very proud of our teas and we hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!


Marcus works as a Theatre Manager for a Performing Arts Centre, he also runs High Tea with Harriet so he's a very busy man! He is a trained actor and writer and also works designing and constructing sets for theatrical productions. He is a talented woodworker and all-round good guy!


Andy and Sophie are both professional opera singers with a lifetime of experience in touring productions. Between working on tour with Phantom of the Opera and My Fair Lady, they work with us as our office managers. They are fun, clever, wonderful women to have around the office!
