Zealong GM Gigi Crawford visited Japan recently to attend the annual ALFS Bazaar. ALFS is an organization of ladies from Asian-Pacific countries and the Bazaar is held once a year to showcase local products and cuisine from these countries, with a part of the proceeds going to charitable institutions in each member country.

While there, Ms. Crawford introduced Zealong Tea to many people, including Japanese First Lady Madame Akie Abe, who really enjoyed trying New Zealand grown tea.
