Zealong | Organic Oolong Teas
$2.50 – $98.00
The story of Zealong begins with a single flower. Inspired by a Camellia tree flowering in his neighbour’s backyard, Zealong founder Vincent Chen realised something no one else had — the climate in Waikato, New Zealand was perfect for growing tea. The fertile fields and temperate climate of Waikato proved perfect for growing the delicate Camellia trees. And so, Zealong was born.
Returning to Asia on the hunt for the world’s purest Camellia trees, Vincent found 1500 trees from which he could begin his dream. But due to New Zealand’s stringent quarantine process, only 130 cuttings survived. Vincent was determined to make it work. Tirelessly nurturing the small plantation on the outskirts of Hamilton, he and his team found success in the humble cup of tea. Those initial 130 saplings have now become an estimated 1.2 million Camellia trees, which are spread across 48 hectares of some of New Zealand’s most fertile soil.
Producing great tea isn’t enough at Zealong. It has to be done the right way. The natural way. Free from harmful chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals, Zealong’s tea is among the purest in the world. Zealong knows exactly what’s in its tea — right down to the row of trees it was picked from. Zealong is certified organic, and certifications include BioGro, ISO22000, HACCP and USDA, meaning it is one of the most trusted tea producers in the world. Zealong has also won awards far and wide including prestigious awards at the AVPA ‘Tea of the World’ ceremony.
