Tauranga, which roughly translates to “place of rest or safe anchorage”, is a harbourside city in the North Island’s Bay of Plenty. Hosting a population of around 125,000 permanent residence, making it New Zealand’s 5th largest city. Renowned for its beautiful beach, close proximity to Mt Maunganui and White Island and temperate weather, Tauranga is a top holiday destination with a relaxed and inviting vibe.
Situated in this beautiful township of Tauranga on the East Coast, Maitea is proudly 100% Kiwi owned. Maitea, pronounced ‘My Tea’, opened its doors in 2014 and soon won the Best Specialty Tea House in New Zealand 2018, a remarkable feat. This business is run by two of our internationally recognised tea masters Russ and Moira. At the heart of Maitea there is a truly passionate and genuine love of tea and a strong focus to enlighten the world about the benefits and beauty of tea and to build a true tea culture in New Zealand. Creating specialty teas that are out of this world and bringing back some of the age old traditions that were almost lost within the generations, Maitea is certainly moving forward in making sure these valuable historical treasures remain firmly in our tea caddys.
Maitea offers a beautiful selection of teas, gorgeous tea-ware, tea classes, tasting, custom blending and a very well thought out wholesale partner program – literally something for everyone. With over 100 varieties it isn’t going to be a quick trip in-store or online…there is a lot to consider! I look forward to sharing some of my exciting tea discoveries in my upcoming blogs ♥
