Jordana Edwards, founder of Clean Tea and The Breastfeeding Tea Co. has been nominated for the 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards.
The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The AusMumpreneur Network celebrate and recognize Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation. The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
When asked what inspired her to become a mumpreneur, Jordana shares that she “wanted to start a business that combined my love for tea and my journey to improve my health. Reaching out to my mum who was a naturopath and medical herbalist we created our first 3 beautiful organic tea blends: Clean Tea, Detox Tea and Dream Tea.”
There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Jordana explains, “as a mum of three, I found starting a business was not only a great way to build my independence but also a wonderful way to ensure I was able to balance the time I wanted to spend with my kids and attend all the important events working in an office didn’t allow.” Jordana found herself needing to return to the workforce but no desire to return to a job that didn’t fulfil her. After searching for the perfect solution, in 2013 Jordana founded Clean Tea and started as a market stall in Byron Bay.
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Jordana has found plenty of wonderful benefits from starting their own enterprise.”When I started Clean Tea, I didn’t realise at the time, but I was actually choosing to follow her healing path. I am so grateful that together we have been able to create tea blends that are beneficial, satisfying and therapeutic. Each tea is still skilfully created by my mum and I, our small team of women who hand label, blend and package every tea…each packet of Clean Tea is made with love.”
