Walk in the tea field

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

Premium Tea Experience

Some people describe the experience as one form of tea ceremony. 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 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 are no wifi and 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.

If you have any questions, please email us at info@maunakeatea.com.

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. We’ve had visitors with varying degrees from beginning tea drinkers who can’t yet brew their tea quite right to serious tea enthusiasts and professionals. They all seem to gain better understanding of natural tea.


Food allergy?

We serve light tea snacks to go with our green tea. They contain fruits, nuts and gluten. Please let us know if you are allergic to some ingredients. We’ll do our best to accommodate your condition.


Regarding Social Distancing and COVID safety:

The entire experience is held outdoors. We host only one group at a time and sanitize serving utensils and cups with hot water as part of the tea preparation. Mask wearing is not required.
