About Us

Tega Tea was built out of our desire and passion for providing healthy, delicious and ethical teas and beverage solutions. Liz Bandelin created Nu-Tea Company in 2003 with a small family-based team. It started with a deep, personal connection with South Africa and a passion for health and wellness and a strong desire to make a difference. The international research on the benefits of Rooibos tea caught Liz’s attention at an opportune time in her life, and sparked her passion to create a premium quality organic specialty tea brand for the North American market.


Our mission is to be the most successful tea company in North America at providing the most unique, healthy and ethical tea experience. In doing so, Nu-Tea Company will meet customer expectations of having the highest quality tea experience, while striving to meet our own expectations of the triple bottom line: People, Planet, Profit.


Our vision is to craft the most naturally delicious, and ethically sourced beverages
