After chasing the sun and sailing the Mediterranean for 3 years, two young and adventurous kiwis decided to bring their love of the ocean & international flavours back home to New Zealand. Taking inspiration from the nautical life & years of hospitality experience, they have created teas both above board for health, and below deck for those cheeky, adult only brews.
Teas can be enjoyed hot or cold. All of their teas are additive, preservative & added sugar-free. The intense flavour arises from a slow dehydration process for maximum intensity of flavour. Because of this, all their teas can be brewed in flasks for over 2 hours, gaining strength but not bitterness.

Charity Tea started with a single call from a friend working for a non-profit organisation in Haiti. She told Gill (Charity Tea Founder) about a baby girl who had been abandoned at the local hospital in Les Cayes, Haiti.
Unable to forget this call, Gill decided to make this “her problem” and sent money to feed the child for a year. Within a few days, she heard about 6 more hungry children. She learnt that in Haiti many children only had 1 or 2 meals a day. These meals often lacked proper nutrients. More so, she learnt that food was not provided to children in the hospital. Children that were abandoned or had no one to feed them simply had to go hungry.
She started Ten18 International (www.ten18International.com), a charity that raises money in New Zealand to support hungry children here at home, and in Haiti.
To help raise funds for the work of Ten18 International Gill also launched Charity Tea – a luxury brand of loose-leaf organic tea; health-promoting blends that nourish the drinker and nourish hungry children. Revenue from sales of Charity Tea supports our charitable purposes.
Charity Tea currently partner with the Kai Kitchen Trust in New Zealand to support their school lunch programmes, and we partner with Little footprints Big Steps in Haiti to run feeding programmes.
Founder of Charity Tea and Ten18 International; Gill Bredl is a passionate and dedicated social entrepreneur. She is the founder of Charity Tea, a luxury organic loose leaf tea brand that uses its revenue to address issues of world hunger. She is community and inclusion focussed; passionate about social justice and ethical trade. She has 3 wonderful children and a dog; and enjoys movies, reading, beach walks and learning the violin.SKU: n/a

Mammas Milk Bar
Wendy is the owner and mastermind of Mammas Milk Bar. She is a mum of 2 wee babes and started Mammas Milk Bar to help support women during their pregnancy and breastfeeding journeys based on her own experience.
During and after her pregnancy, she struggled with two things:
- Boosting milk supply in a HEALTHY way
- Finding clean protein that had NO nasty stuff to support my needs through my journey from pregnancy, postpartum to breastfeeding.
BOOSTING SUPPLY: She had low milk supply and didn’t want to rely on sweet treats or cookies(!), so she created healthy versatile blends using the best locally sourced ingredients
PROTEIN NEEDS: During pregnancy and breastfeeding, protein needs can increase between 70 to 100+ grams per day. Usually, a mama can meet all her protein needs by having a varied diet. But some women struggle because of morning sickness and need an additional boost. This is where clean protein powders can help.
So now Wendy brings these to every mamma out there, from a place of love and Aroha, from one mama to another. Authentic and honest clean protein, and healthy lactation booster blends, made from highest quality ingredients like dutch cocoa, real vanilla bean, organic coconut sugar, etc.
As a mum, it is so important to know what’s going into your body for your baby. Mammas Milk Bar uses 100% natural ingredients like real vanilla bean, dutch cocoa and organic coconut sugar.SKU: n/a

Kristina Ivanova, based in Auckland, is the mastermind behind Milk 2.0, your healthy plant-based milk alternative.
Although there is already has a large variety of plant-based milk products readily available, Kristina has always felt that something was missing from nearly every alternative. For example:
- Taste & texture are often completely compromised
- They don’t actually contain a whole lot of nuts (Milk2.0 has 10x the average)
- They’re filled with chemicals and additives
- Products are UHT and HPP processed to extend their shelf life, but the nutritional value of the milk deteriorates over time
Recently invited to the TED conference in Vancouver to showcase our cruelty-free vision for modern milk, Milk 2.0 is also committed to zero-waste and use glass bottles for all deliveries and sustainable packaging for all their products.
Milk 2.0 is reinventing the future of milk and available in natural or chocolate flavour.SKU: n/a
