We want to inspire the world to enjoy tea at its best.
In hospitality this means enabling our customers to serve tea perfectly every time.

At the heart of Maitea lies a desire to build the New Zealand tea culture through meaningful relationships and partnerships with cafés,restaurants and specialty stores.   We are totally dedicated to customer service and the highest quality tea. In the same way that we build great partnerships with our tea farmers, we also aim to build great partnerships with our customers.

We put time and effort into working with our wholesale customers, and are committed to ensuring these partnerships are mutually beneficial. We collaborate with businesses who share our vision and our uncompromising commitment to offering great quality.

Maitea offers custom blending to both individuals and businesses.

These custom blends are lovingly created by our Tea Masters with special attention to detail and taste. For more information or to request a custom blend, contact moira@maitea.co.nz 
We can also provide blends in loose-leaf form, and customers are free to provide their own packaging.
We are proud to provide these key aspects to our custom blending
  • Absolute confidentiality.
  • Blended in New Zealand
  • Highly collaborative approach to blend creation
  • Qualified and  experienced Tea Masters and Tea Blenders 


    Our Certified Tea Masters are specially trained in tea blending.

    We have had many years of experience in creating signature blends for businesses, special events and individuals.

    A custom-made tea, or tea range, is a very special, unique thing to have, and working with clients to create them is one of our specialties.

    We custom blend private label teas for our clients in two ways.

    1) The client can provide their own formulations with exact measurements of each ingredient, and we can replicate it.

    2) We can create signature formulations from scratch, based on each client’s requirements.
