The partnership of two Pacific families, united by a passion for the world’s most sensual and exotic flavour and aroma.

The richest grade of Vanilla in the Asia Pacific region calls for lots of tender love and care. The most perfect and natural growing environment meant that we were off to a good start. Add to this our organic growing principles and you get vanilla grown in organic virgin soil, on coconut husk frames at the Heilala Plantation, hand pollinated and dried under the Pacific Sun, then stored at optimum conditions to ensure full flavour develops. This is what gives our 100% Pure Heilala Vanilla (of the Bourban variety) its distinctive aroma, shine and plumpness!!

TATRATEA Original Tea Liqueurs unite the finest brewed black Assam tea with an undisclosed number of other hand-picked botanical ingredients in a unique fermentation process. The TATRATEA process begins with the careful selection of premium teas, herbs and other ingredients.


Each flavor of TATRATEA typically blends some 27 ingredients such as black or white tea, gentian, lemon balm, St. John’s wort, cinnamon and clove and others. After a long steeping process, the resulting tea and herbal base is blended with fruit extracts and distillates and allowed to mature further. Finally, the mixture is combined with the region’s justly famous smooth and balanced mountain spring water, along with a refined alcohol and inverted sugar concentrate. The mixture will again mature before a final filtration and bottling.
