Tea Tours

A Journey Through Tea History and Culture

What is in the Tea Tour?

THE HISTORY OF NEW ZEALAND TEA

It all started with a camellia tree. The flourishing Waikato plants mean New Zealand is not just pure and clean, it is also the perfect environment to grow one teas that excel in aroma and taste.

THE TEA WALK

The tour guide leads visitors along the tea trail through the history of tea as they explore unique sculptures and scenic stops to learn how tea is picked and processed.

THE ART OF THE TEA CEREMONY

A ceremonial Zealong tea tasting teaches the art of tea appreciation, of appearance, aroma, and taste, followed by an optional Signature High Tea at the Tea House overlooking the Estate.
