We are Tea and Herbal Tea creators based in Nelson, New Zealand and couriering nationwide. Our teas are lovingly created in small batches using organically-grown, sprayfree, NZ herbs which are naturally air-dried and blended for wellness benefits. We also use additional Certified Organic International tea, herbs and spices in our blends. Our Teas are packaged using compostable bags, re-usuable bags and shipped in Home-compostable courier bags. We stock over 40 selected retail outlets around NZ and also make signature blends for businesses and custom-blends for individuals. Our full range of Teas is available at and all up to date news is posted on our active Facebook Page.



About Us

About Us

Heke Homemade Herbals is owned and operated by Emma Heke aka The Tea Lady. We started with an idea, 4 herbs, a steep urban garden, a love of tea and a loathe of lawn-mowing. Initial trials of 4 herbal tea blends at the Nelson Market and via our Facebook Page saw immediate success with stock Sold Out and backorders. The next year and a half demand always outweighed supply and more and more NZ growers were sought and international suppliers came on board too. In 2017 we won the Business Innovation Award at the Nelson/Tasman Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. In 2019 we entered one Tea (Awake and Aware) in the Outstanding NZ Food Producer Awards and won a Silver Medal for our Tea and also an overall Runner-Up award for our Sustainable Packaging. In 2020 we entered another Tea (Soothe) in the same awards and again won Silver. We've had some excellent coverage in the New Zealand Life and Leisure magazine, Stuff and Wild Tomato.
