About New Zealand

White column with Zealong Tea Estate Logo, fields of tea in the backgroundPhoto © Zealong, All Rights Reserved
New Zealand is a country in the southern hemisphere. The climate in much of New Zealand is moderate and humid, suitable for growing tea. The main difference in climate between New Zealand and the cooler regions of Asia in which tea has been grown historically, is that the rainfall pattern and temperatures of New Zealand are both more constant year-round, whereas south and southeast Asia have strong seasonal precipitation due to the monsoon in that region, and the cooler regions have more variability in temperatures due to the dry winters.

Historically, tea was not grown in New Zealand, but in recent years it has begun to be grown here. Oolong tea grown in New Zealand is available from Zealong, which sells in the U.S. through Chicago Tea Garden.
