Visiting Mauna Kea Tea

Currently we are unable to offer farm tours.  Sorry for inconvenience. Please check back in January 2020.

Farm Tour and Tea Tasting  |   Open Farm Day

Mauna Kea Tea is open to the public by appointment only. We have a small tasting room overlooking the tea fields and tea from the farm for sale. Since we’re often out in the fields please call ahead at 808-775-1171 or email to ensure that someone will be present to meet your arrival. We believe that each customer deserves our full attention and should be treated as an important guest.

Please call to confirm availability for hours Monday-Friday – 9am – 3pm
