Sovereign Tea


In collaboration with Brewed by Belinda, this is black tea blend was created for Unbound Collectivefor their exhibition APRON-SORROW / SOVEREIGN-TEA as part of Tarnanthi 2021. 

In the worlds of Unbound Collective:

this Sovereign Tea is made with love to honour and respect all Aboriginal women who were indentured to domestic service across Australia. All Sovereign Tea profits are made to an Aboriginal women's shelter, with special thanks to Vitalstatistix, Flinders University, and Tarnanthi Festival 2021 of the Art Gallery of South Australia. We acknowledge that our tea is made on Kaurna Yarta using local and imported ingredients: Daintree black tea, malted whipstick wattle seed, and organic red rose petals. As the label instructs: We live, labour, love, agitate and drink tea on the unceded lands of Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, and we acknowledge all our Kaurna community – past, present, and future. So… put the kettle on, steep your brew, savour the blend, and stir with intent. This tea can be purchased at the Art Gallery of South Australia, and 100% of proceeds goes to an Aboriginal women's shelter.
