They say - pure air, pure sunshine, pure water and fertile soil give Zealong New Zealand tea a remarkable freshness in flavour and fragrance that excites even the most jaded tea drinker. Grown as nature intended, Zealong’s hand-picked leaves are thicker and have more flavour, allowing up to six or seven infusions from one serving.
So come try there tea with stunning views over the only tea plantation in New Zealand.
Zealong Tea Tours run at 9.30am and 2.30pm, Tuesday to Sunday
