Hawaiian Grown Tea

2015-11-11 12.26.46

Doesn’t look like much now but one day this will be part of a beautiful working tea farm…Hawaiian Style!  Ulupalakua Ranch on the leeward side of Haleakala is planting tea at 4700′ above sea level.  What makes this project unique is that rows of tea is being planted between rows of native koa trees.  The koa will grow tall over time while the tea will be manicured to be an understory crop.  Leaves from the koa trees help with nitrogen fixation to maintain soil fertility for years to come.

More than a Drink

Keep calm

An excerpt from a customer’s letter that tea is more than just a drink.

“I am writing to thank you for making such wonderful tea.  As a disabled Army veteran, I don’t often find easy, quick ways to unwind.  Your teas help me to do just that.  Your teas have helped me to successfully manage stress, anxiety and PTSD in a healthy way.

Please let the people at your company know how much I appreciate the time and effort you all put into making your tea.  At the end of the day just know there are those out here like myself who are stealing a much needed quiet moment of peace with the fabulous tea you make.”

Thank you for enjoying our products.

Live well, Laugh often, Love much.
