Fresh, fragrant and full of flavour!Aussie Pepper
Aussie Pepper is family owned and operated and proud to grow premium Australian pepper which is pesticide free and sustainably farmed at Silkwood, near Innisfail in Tropical North Queensland.
Donna Campagnolo continues the family tradition of being committed to growing high quality pepper that will enhance the flavour of any food.
In 1986, Louis and Levis Campagnolo - "L & L Pepper" - started planting piper nigrum plants and progressed to establish the first and only commercial pepper farm in Australia. Whilst most pepper is grown in Southern India, Indonesia and Malaysia, the latitude and climatic conditions in this pocket of Australia has allowed this crop to thrive with their experience and care.
The Daintree is a rainy place.Daintree Tea
The Nicholas family started the Daintree Tea Company in 1978 with the planting of the Cubbagudta (rainy place) tea plantation.
Greg Nicholas continues to operate this Australian tea business today and employs locals in various roles to process and pack the tea on site in the middle of the Daintree rainforest.
There are approximately 4km of hedge per hectare and the tea is mechanically harvested. Only the tender tips are taken and then processed and packaged on the farm. The moist warm climate of the Daintree Rainforest with nearly 4000mm of rainfall per year and an average temperature range of 25 to 35 degrees, make it ideal for growing the tea plant, Camellia sinensis.
Love the pepper, I don’t want to ever run out.
Lovely product. Great that I can purchase products with low food miles to me in North Queensland
Absolutely love this pepper. I was never a fan on pepper till I knew someone who had some. Just the smell was incredible. I have bought multiple bags, have shared with many, and now put it in every cook up.
We live in Sydney and both big tea drinkers. We have loved Daintree tea either the bags or the loose tea for years. The tea has a beautiful taste , Australian grown, a wonderful product. Give it a go. V&P
I love this pepper and will be the only ground pepper I will use from now on.
Great pepper. Amazing flavour. Easy to order
Bloody good stuff
Bought this tea whilst on holidays in Cairns last year. So good, I purchased a few boxes recently. My favourite tea now!
We love the pepper so much
great tea great service
Smells divine, love buying Aussie food grown in nth qld
Securely packed and immediately shipped once order received. Best value for a good quantity of Australian grown pepper and tea. I bought more than I need but it will last much longer as it is much fresher than supermarket products. Flavour and fragrance is great.
Great product. Bought some when in Cairns a few months ago. Loved it so ordered 2 more lots.
Great cinnamon. Really good taste. Goes on my breakfast every day!
It’s the freshest & tasty pepper -
