Zealong Aromatic tea served to China’s President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister John Key at official event

On Friday 21 November 2014 at an official lunch, our Quality Control Manager was very honoured to personally serve our freshest Zealong Aromatic tea (harvested last week) to China’s President Xi Jinping, Prime Minister John Key, China’s First Lady, and Mrs Key. Their 500 guests also enjoyed Zealong Aromatic tea during their lunch at Skycity Auckland, using our Z-cup Elegance. John Key’s guests were surprised that tea is actually grown here in New Zealand and they enjoyed the experience.
