Zealong Tea Estate Releases Botanicals Range For The USA Market

Zealong Tea is a highly awarded organic tea enjoyed by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and winner of several top awards at the 2017 Global Tea Championships. They've just launched a new Botanicals range for the US market.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) Zealong is New Zealand’s only commercial tea plantation. The tea plants are nurtured in New Zealand’s unspoiled air, soil and water; and sold to some of the world’s most luxurious department stores such as Harrods of London, and Europe’s top tea houses such as TeeGschwendner of Germany.In true Zealong style, everything about their new botanicals range, just released on the USA market, has been thoroughly thought through and extremely well executed. The teas look beautiful (especially the lady Gatsby with her red rose petals, and the jasmine in the Green Heart); they smell wonderful (that’s what real herbs and spices do); and the key ingredients (manuka, ginger, tulsi, peppermint, rose, cinnamon and kawakawa) have been carefully selected and combined to be beneficial for health. Each flavor is complex and layered, yet they are all still unmistakably Zealong’s pure, award-winning tea. 
The Botanicals range has been developed with the US market in mind:

Lady Gatsby: Rose, Cinnamon and Manuka Green Tea 
The lady of the range beautiful with her bright petals contrasting with the dark tea leaves and spices. Not only does this tea look fabulous, the naturally sweet and floral taste makes it an excellent morning or afternoon tea.

Green Heart: Lemongrass, Jasmine, Ginger, Tulsi, Kawakawa Green Tea 
For a cleansing and calming tea – this is it. The delicious lemon and ginger flavour is mellowed by the jasmine and lifted by the tulsi (commonly known as holy basil in India for and used in traditional healing), and kawakawa (a pepper-like New Zealand coastal plant)

Fire & Ice: Ginger, Spearmint, Peppermint, Manuka Black Tea 
Fire & Ice is perfect to describe the contrasting warmth of the ginger and manuka with the coolness of the spearmint and peppermint in this fabulous black tea.

Ice Breaker: Spearmint, Peppermint, Kawakawa Green Tea 
This is a really refreshing blend with the liveliness of the spearmint, cooling peppermint and hint of pepper from the kawakawa. Like the others in the botanicals range, this tea is choc-full of goodness from the green tea to the added herbs and spices.

Zealong tea has been given the thumbs up from daily drinkers to the world’s top tea experts. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is a fan of Zealong tea, and the experts agree: Zealong's green, black and oolong single serve (pyramid bags) were recently judged top in their respective categories at the 2017 Global Tea Championship in Colorado.

The Zealong Botanicals range are packed in the same premium pyramid bags. Unlike most pyramid tea bags, which are usually made of nylon (plastic petroleum) Zealong's teabags are made of a non-GMO plant based starch so they are free of the synthetic polymer fibers, staples, glues, binding agents and bleaches typically found in pyramid and temple tea bags. Zealong tea bags are safe for you and the planet.

Zealong is also one of the very few tea companies to hold ISO22000 HACCP certification - the world's highest food safety standards. Their traceability system can identify batch specific teas by day, block and processing method which far exceeds industry standards. They are certified and audited by Swiss Consultancy SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company and they are USDA certified organic.
