This year we've been on a mission to get more locally produced ingredients into our teas. We actually started on this path a wee while back and this week we've begun to introduce the first of our new ingredients into our teas starting with this Rosemary from Kerikeri in the beautiful Bay of Islands.
Our grand plan is to convert at least 35% of our currently imported ingredients over to locally produced ingredients by the end of the year.
So far it's taken a lot of work to hunt down the right growers but we're stoked to have built up a strong network of people who we know share our passion for producing a supreme product. But for us, it's not just about us getting our hands of the best ingredients, it's also about supporting these growers and helping them to build and sustain their rural economies.
Long live rural New Zealand!
