Zealong Tea

When you think of New Zealand you don’t usually think of tea growing but here in the Waikato at the Zealong Tea Estate that’s exactly what’s happening. Being the only tea growers in New Zealand there have been plenty of challenges along the way but the Zealong team are overcoming all the odds. To find out more, be sure to watch the Zealong Tea episode from our series called Thinking Forward which airs later in the year on Country TV. The series is all about innovative rural business ideas and is sponsored by Campbell Tyson Chartered Accountants.
