Bushells was founded in Brisbane in 1883 as a tea shop by Alfred Bushell and soon proved to be popular. Alfred's sons, Philip and Walter joined and helped expand the business in 1899 and Bushell and Co moved into George St, Sydney, by then supplying tea across Australia. During the Great Depression of the1930s, chicory became a popular coffee substitute and additive and Bushells began making coffee and chicory essence. Coffee and chicory essence is still used in the present day to make cakes and iced coffees.
