We love sharing the beauty and artistry of tea through our many classes, from basic to advanced. These classes will surely change your entire outlook on the mystical Camellia sinensis. Tea sampling and light pupus provided while broadening your mind and palate, and connecting with other tea lovers!
Our tea talks are designed as an introduction to the tea culture, and Hawaii’s own tea renaissance. Topics are selected in advance by participants or suggested by Teaching Tea. Recommended for varied audiences of schools, libraries, corporate groups, private parties, public and non-profit organizations. Tea sampling and light pupus provided.
E komo mai ~ Welcome! As the only dedicated tea shop on the Big Island of Hawai’i, we offer tea education, quality loose leaf teas, gifts and accessories. We are proud to carry exquisite Hawai’i grown tea, as well as teas from around the world. Come talk story and sip with us!
OUR PHILOSOPHY embraces tea as nourishment for the mind, body, soul & spirit!
OUR MISSION flows from this philosophy…creating a healthy community by sharing a percentage of our profits with special causes.
OUR GOAL…is to contribute to the growth of Hawaii’s tea culture, and to continue learning and teaching about tea. We wish that all with whom we cross paths experience such delight or relief through the simple act of sharing tea.
“The pursuit of tea knowledge – its leaf, liquor, characteristics, rituals/traditions, effects, and benefits – is ongoing and infinite.”
