Zealong Tea Estate and Hamilton Gardens day trip
Leave behind the bustle of Auckland city and head south to the Zealong Tea Estate. This is the only commercial tea estate in New Zealand, producing 100% organic award-winning tea. At Zealong you will get a guided tour showing you how they produce their teas and enjoy a ceremonial tea tasting and savour not only the taste, but also appearance and aroma of the tea leaves. What will be your favourite – a traditional green tea, an aromatic oolong or one of their zesty blends using native botanicals?
Afterwards we go to Hamilton Gardens and you will have some time there to buy some lunch at the gardens cafe and explore the 21 gardens. The Hamilton Gardens represent the art, beliefs, lifestyles and traditions of different civilisations or historical garden styles. Hamilton Gardens is the most popular tourist attraction in the Waikato. You can see more about the gardens here.
We return back to Auckland before the traffic builds up.
