Bell Tea guarantees freshness of our teas through ensuring product reaches stores and food outlets in a great condition, and they meet our quality standards. Bell has a barrier proofing in the packaging to keep the air out. All our unprocessed tea is packed in foil lined sacks to provide a moisture barrier and keep the tea dry.

Correctly stored, tea can stay fresh up to three years. It's much better though to keep your tea turning over so we recommend buying small quantities often.

Bell Tea is packed right here in New Zealand! The tea bags are made from natural fibres, with the main source being the Abaca plant (a close relative of the banana), with a small amount of food grade plastic necessary to heat seal the teabags.

All our Bell Tea is packed into fully recyclable boxes.
