Tea Experience in the Field

Take a guided walk through the trees and have tea in the tea field. We think you’ll love this environment and the expansive feeling it brings.

Available by appointment only.
This is not suitable for children age 5 and under.

Experience the agricultural and culinary wonder of Hawaii island and experience green tea in the field.

Walk through native Ohia tree forest to the tea house and enjoy our fresh natural farmed artisan green teas and snacks in the fields. 

Walk in the tea field

We will walk through tea fields surrounded by native Ohia forest and fruit trees. You will have some time to enjoy being in the tea field and observe how tea plants grow and benefit from being grown in a variety of diverse vegetation. You may also notice some wild orchids, seasonal flowers and fruits. Occasionally, farm animals come and greet you.

Loose Leaf Tea Ceremony

Tea is prepared and served in Japanese loose leaf style tea ceremony, Senchado. It is guided, in a casual setting. You will learn a few simple steps to appreciate tea using your senses. Tea ceremony experience is not required.

In this quiet experience we would like to emphasize the beauty of being present. You will learn to pay attention to the subtle details of aroma and flavor. Our intention is to share the experience of being on the farm, immersed in the simple beauty of nature, away from the busy-ness of life.

Please note that the farm is rustic. Walking paths are gravel, uneven, and sometimes steep. There is no wifi nor cellular services. We wish for you to come away from the experience with a deeper appreciation for natural farming, green teas, and for your own senses.

We aim to share our learning and appreciation of tea. We hope you will take time to find a deeper connection with nature and an appreciation for the way of tea.

We look forward to hosting you.

**** Infants and Children – We have noticed that some of our younger guests, aged 0-5, and even their parents, cannot enjoy the peaceful waiting for tea. There are exceptions, of course, and usually older children are more able. Even though it is casual, tea ceremony requires people to enjoy a calm period of time. If your child has difficulty with calm, regardless of their age, this is not a suitable activity for them.

Customizing Your Tea Experience

It helps us to know your background knowledge in tea and what tea you like to drink so we can tailor your tea experience to better suit you. Please feel free to share your understanding of tea in appointment notes.
The private group booking (+$50) allows more flexibility to your group’s particular interest. 
We’ve had visitors with varying degrees of experience from beginning tea drinkers who can’t yet brew their tea quite right to serious tea enthusiasts and professionals. They all seem to gain a better understanding of natural tea.

Food or other allergy?

We serve light tea snacks to go with our green tea. They may contain fruit, nuts, sugar and/or gluten. Please let us know if you are allergic to some of these ingredients or have dietary preferences. We’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
