The tea factory

All about our tea


Zealong’s factory is where we create the world’s purest tea from freshly picked leaves. Our tea masters oversee the process assisted by a team of highly skilled technicians and ensure that we get the best out of our New Zealand-grown tea leaves. It’s a labour-intensive 24 to 36 hour process from start to finish requiring a mix of modern technology and ancient skills to achieve perfection.

To meet stringent ISO22000 HACCP food safety standards, the factory is treated as a restricted entry ‘clean zone’. All staff and visitors are required to observe strict rules on personal hygiene, clothing and footwear.
