The new campaign, launching in August, has been created by The Monkeys, part of Accenture Song and focuses on raising brand awareness and encouraging trial by bringing to life the unique flavours of MOOD tea.
The campaign will run across TV, Cinema, Digital, Radio, Print, Outdoor, Retail Media and Social channels. MOOD’s media agency partner Carat has secured over $10m worth of prime-time inventory to support the campaign thanks to over 30 media owners.

Three of the most creative entries will win a $1,000 Woolworths Supermarkets eGift card and a year’s supply of MOOD tea each.
Chris Freel, CEO of UnLtd and MOOD tea commented: “It’s such an exciting week for our industry as the product that so many have been part of creating and promoting, is finally hitting the shelves of 865 Woolworths stores across the country. We are extremely grateful to every individual and company who has supported MOOD and we should all feel incredibly proud of what we have achieved together.
“Next time you’re at your local Woolworths, make sure you buy some MOOD, grab a selfie, and help us spread the word so that we can help to save more lives, one cup of tea at a time.”
