2 Years of Brewing Fine Tea
11 years in the making
Meerup tea Estate is a family run farm, we do it all from growing, processing to packaging the tea. Our backround was mainly based as cattle and avocado farmers. In 2007 we embarked on our tea journey, little did we know those tiny green seedlings would turn into such tasty tea. In 2013 after 6 years of patiently nurturing and weeding the tea plants we searched for an appropriate tea processing plant. The tea processing plant was established after collaboration with Kawasaki in Japan, we could not have done this without our excellent interpreter, Hiroshi.
The processing plant was shipped over from Japan and was set up by a team of Kawasaki employees, none of whom could speak a word of English. They quickly and efficiently set up the machinery and gave us a two day crash course on how use the equipment. So finally after two seasons we managed to perfect the tea process. We started selling our tea for the first time in September 2016. We really do hope you enjoy your cup of tea because a lot of thought and effort has gone into every aspect of this tea process.
We are committed to the zero use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and all those other things put on food to prolong shelf life. We believe a healthy drink needs to be clean a free of any contaminates.
