four delicious, new herbal blends will enhance your mood… and help save lives
The therapeutic properties of herbal tea have been known for centuries. From soothing chamomile to reduce stress and Rooibos to improve blood circulation, to the stomach-calming properties of peppermint and delicious ginger root for aiding digestion.
But now, a selection of new fruit and herbal teas has been launched to raise money to fight youth suicide, the biggest killer of 15-44-year-olds in Australia.
MOOD Tea was created by a group of Australian media companies and includes four unique premium blends designed to make you feel more positive, whatever mood you’re in.
And BIBO is partnering with MOOD Tea by giving away four packs containing 48 individually wrapped bags (12 of each blend) worth $50 with every BIBO water bar.
Not only that, for a limited period, we'll also throw in a glass travel mug worth $30!
That's $80 in free gifts!

lift the mood of a generation
Jenni Hayward, General Manager of MOOD says, “Youth suicide is one of the monumental issues of our time. It takes more young lives each year than cancer or car accidents.
"We couldn’t accept that. So together with our amazing industry partners, we created MOOD to literally lift the mood of a generation. We want to make it easy for people to save young lives while taking an important moment for themselves each day. By choosing MOOD, consumers can sip selflessly knowing that all profits fund youth mental health programs.”
All the profits from MOOD Tea will be donated to selected Australian organisations helping at-risk children and young people. These include:
Backtrack Practical and emotional support for young people from rural and remote communities who are having a hard time stabilising their lives and want to boost their self-esteem and skills for work.
Batyr Engaging, educating and empowering young people to have positive conversations about mental health and smashing the stigma.
