Our Teas and Herbal Teas are made with Certified Organic/Organically-grown/Sprayfree/Certified Wild-Crafted herbs, fruits, flowers and spices. 

We grow some ourselves, have NZ sources all over the country and just import what doesn't grow here or we simply can't get enough of. 

Why Choose Us?

Our teas are lovingly created in small batches and blended for wellness benefits. Top quality teas at affordable prices. We use Certified Organic (imported), Organically-grown (NZ), Spray-free (NZ) and Certified Wild-Crafted (NZ) herbs and spices.

I LOVE Heke Homemade Herbal teas! Emma is helpful, knowledgeable and is a pleasure to deal with. The sleep tea has changed my life because instead of tossing and turning like I always did I now drift off easily every night ( this sounds like an infomercial but it has really worked). My partner is now converted to Sleep tea as well and so I make a pot for us to share every night. Could not recommend more highly !

Our Story began with a Love of Tea and a Loathe of Lawnmowing!

Heke Homemade Herbals expanded to create nearly 70 different blends, supplying over 60 retailers throughout NZ and graduated from Facebook Messenger sales to this website. Won Silver Medals at the Outstanding NZ Food Producer Awards in 2019 (Awake & Aware) and 2020 (Soothe).

We still make small, hand-crafted batches and package the Teas ourselves but have moved out of home and into two custom-made cabins on the property. I now 'go to work' (down 5 steps and around the corner, lol). As well as the Tea Blends on this website I also create teas for Corporate Gift Baskets, Wellness Centres, Retreats, Cafes, Hairdressers, Gift Shops, Organic shops and other NZ Businesses.

The best place to keep up to date with all things Heke Homemade Herbals is our website page. You can DM me questions there and I'll answer them myself. Not a chatbot in site!

I love creating tea blends and connecting with customers. Still passionate about what I do 9 years on. Keeping our Teas full of flavour, colour, texture and wellness benefits through using top quality organic herbs, and absolutely no additives, is where it's at for me.
