New Zealand’s only commercial tea estate has just released a brand new tea collection: Aptly sub-titled “Zealong’s Own”, The Heritage Collection is uniquely Zealong – a nostalgic interpretation of the age-old favourites Breakfast, Grey, Chai, and Chamomile, blended with all-natural ingredients.
In true Zealong style, everything about the new Heritage Collection has been thoroughly considered, putting New Zealand’s mark on some of the world’s favourite tea traditions.
The teas’ key ingredients have been carefully selected and combined to be reminiscent of their origins while emphasizing their distinctive Zealong roots. Each infusion is complex and layered, yet they are all still unmistakably recognizable as being Zealong’s award-winning tea.
“Tea is such a home comfort for many people, and we tend to have fond memories and certain rituals attached to that,” said Zealong General Manager Gigi Crawford.
“With the Heritage Collection, we aimed to recreate the iconic tea flavours we’ve grown up with, using our own Waikato-grown tea.”
The result is four wistful blends which will be sure to please the most discerning palates, made with certified-organic natural herbs and spices, with no added oils or artificial flavours.
Zealong’s Own Breakfast
100% New Zealand grown, roasted black tea
A smooth and mellow Zealong tea with a hint of citrus and a sweet honey aftertaste. Delicious with or without milk at any time of the day.
Zealong’s Own Grey
100% New Zealand grown, roasted black tea, red rose petals, lavender, jasmine blossoms, lemon myrtle, bergamot peel and peppermint
A unique take on a classic blend, Zealong’s own Grey is a delicate combination of well-loved herbs and flowers, and just a slight hint of bitter citrus.
Zealong’s Own Chai
100% New Zealand grown, roasted black tea, cardamom, black pepper, cinnamon, ginger and clove
This gutsy chai mingles with our Zealong Black tea, evoking all the exotic flavours of faraway places and leaving one with just a suggestion of lingering smoky char.
Zealong’s Own Chamomile
Chamomile, 100% New Zealand grown, roasted black tea, lavender and lemon myrtle
This distinctive blend of dreamy Chamomile with a touch of lavender and low caffeine Zealong Black tea will calm and soothe you while you relax and unwind.
