Old Hawaii Tea


Fred has decided to call his tea "Old Hawaii Tea Company" and is ready to start sharing samples for review. We are happy that he has decided to work with Tealet and will be sharing his next batches for review by our tasters. We plan to travel to Fred's tea trees to document the story and let you know more about these historic tea trees in Hawaii. Tea trees that are 40 feet tall should be many years old. The first documented Chinese agriculture workers came to Hawaii by 1800, so it is possible that these trees could be over 100 years old. This is not Fred's first time to work with plants so he has been taking cuttings and is developing a tissue culture program for these trees.

These trees open a new chapter for Hawaii Grown Tea.
