We share our learning and appreciation of farming and rural lifestyle through tasting of tea and private farm tour. We hope you will take time to find deeper connection with nature and an appreciation for the way of tea. We are a small family run farm engaging in farming activities and tea production. Please call or email for an early reservation so that we can put some time aside to share our stories.

Mauna Kea Tea is a beautiful family run business. They make amazing tea mixtures by hand. I love their Coconut Green Tea and cant wait to try their new Turmeric Green Tea.
