After working in the nutrition industry for over 20 years, Kim Stirling was looking for a way of holistically helping those who were on a journey to a happier and healthier life. She furthered her studies in natural therapy, completing a Bachelor of Naturopathy and a Diploma in Herbal Medicine before starting The Herbal Teapot & Apothecary.

“Even before I started studying in the natural therapies industry, I was using herbs medicinally for myself and my family, and once I understood even more about the medicinal qualities of herbs they became my absolute passion! I believe that teas and tisanes are such an amazing but gentle way of gaining some health benefits and healing for everyone. I started developing herbal teas for assisting with my client’s health and wellbeing, and during that process I found that I really enjoyed the manufacturing and development of natural herbal products,” Stirling said.

The teas and tisanes are hand blended in small quantities, using organic ingredients sourced from New Zealand and around the world. By using a combination of different herbs and teas such as green tea, white tea or oolong tea as well as dried fruits and vegetables, there is a tisane or tea “to suit everyone.”

The Herbal Teapot products are packaged in Papakura, and have been successfully selling at the Clevedon Farmers Market for nearly two years. The products are also being served in some cafes and restaurants in Auckland and Tauranga via bulk packs.
