Experience the Tea Fields of Hawaii

Our friends on the big island of Hawaii, who lovingly grow our Hawaii Black and Hawaii Oolong, are helping to host the first ever Hawaii tea tour this November.

Participants in the 3-day tour will get to meet the community of dedicated tea artisans in Hawaii, and:

  • Participate in the harvesting, processing, and tasting of teas,
  • Learn about the cultivation of tea, and how Hawaii’s pristine environment enables rare teas to flourish,
  • Enjoy accommodations within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park amidst a stunning array of native forest, wildlife and cultural treasures,
  • Delight in exotic and special tea-infused meals prepared by tea-loving culinary artists,
  • Immerse the senses in nature and wellness activities,
  • And much more!
