Melbourne Bush Foods Native Tea - Gumby Gumby


Gumby Gumby! Melbourne Bush Foods' heavenly Native Tea is a must have for every pantry. This unique and truly special traditional plant has been used for thousands of years by Australia's First Nation People for its natural healing powers. Its antiviral and antibacterial properties, immune stimulating effects have been studied extensively, and it contains a feast of good-for-you elements that can help your body function better, naturally.

Gumby Gumby is a drought and frost-tolerant plant that is native to many states of Australia. The Parmanyungam name literally means Medicine Plant and belongs to the original custodians of this traditional medicinal tea. Australians are blessed with access to many wild plants like Gumby Gumby with amazing healing properties – no herbicides or pesticides here! You can trust that each batch we sell at Melbourne Bush Foods is harvested by hand in order to preserve its quality while also minimising the environmental impact.

This delicious indigenous tea can be enjoyed hot or cold and can tide you over when those 3pm cravings hit. Get all the goodness of the bush without compromising on flavour with our unique blend of native Australian herbs.
