Kerikeri Tea partners Gary and Tracy are proud to be New Zealand's largest certified organic and fair trade tea company.
All of their tea is sourced directly from premium organic tea estates around the world from where it is shipped straight to Kerikeri in the north of New Zealand's North Island for custom blending.
Kerikeri Tea also source their tea seasonally just after each estate picking, so that their stock rotates faster and their tea remains fresh throughout the year.
Because it is imported directly from tea estates and not through tea brokers in Europe Kerikeri Tea believe they offer the freshest tea in New Zealand.
Kerikeri Tea is certified organic By Asurequality Ltd. All of their tea is certified organic from IFOAM—accredited organisations including Naturland, National Association for Sustainable Agriculture, Australia (NASAA), Institute for Marketecology (IMO), and Japanese Agriculture Standards (JAS).
Kerikeri Tea are also committed to a zero waste policy: they do not use plastic and their their tins are reusable and recyclable.
