PONOinfusions Wins Bronze at 2018 Global Tea Championships with Maui Tea Farm Grown Haleakalā Black Tea
December 4, 2016. Aloha friends. We have been updating our website and social media to feature more of our Maui Tea Farm. The Maui Tea Farm is our organic tea and herb farm that we began in 2013, and slowly have begun to specialize in producing high quality, handcrafted, tea and herbal blends all grown on our property. We are one of the only growers and producers of tea (Camellia sinensis) here on the Island of Maui.
Our farm is located in the rich upcountry Maui agricultural region of Kula, and we purchased and began to plant our tea on our farm in 2014. Our farm and tea workshop is situated at 4,000 feet elevation, 30 minutes away from Haleakala National Park. At our farm, you will notice that the air is cool and the climate cloud-kissed, making it a perfect location for premium high mountain tea. We are pleased to begin offering small batches of our handmade Maui grown black tea for purchase starting mid-2017. With our unique location and gorgeous views, we also welcome tea fans to follow our growth and progress on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
We are proud to announce that PONOinfusions teas are now for sale here on Maui.
We have received wonderful feedback about our teas from customers so far!

Aloha kākou! PONOinfusions has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign from early April until June 2, 2013!
Click Here to visit our Indiegogo Campaign Page and to watch our Video.
PONOinfusions’ products connect you to Hawai’i’s precious natural resources and threatened and endangered species, as well as provide an outlet through which those who love tea and Hawai’i can give back. Through your purchase of PONOinfusions’ certified organic and fair trade infusions, you help us do what is pono by supporting Hawai’i based organizations involved in conservation, reforestation, and invasive species management efforts.
There is still more that we need to accomplish before our PONOinfusions products become available for purchase in stores and via our website. We ask that YOU—our friends, family, and Indiegogo community—help us achieve our fundraising goals to help purchase and create our first batch of products!
With your support of our Indiegogo campaign, our PONOinfusions products will be in your hands 6 months after our fundraising goal is reached. If we reach our minimum $10,000 fundraising goal, we will be able to offer our ’ono PONOinfusions products in select Hawai’i stores.
If you help us meet our stretch goal of $20,000, we will be able to offer our PONOinfusions products in Hawai’i and in select stores in parts of the West Coast and the Pacific Northwest!
We would like to express our most sincere gratitude to those who have helped us so much already. We look forward to providing you with healthy, certified organic infusions and carrying forth our mission to do what is pono! We ask that you please help support our cause in any way you can.
Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) for your kōkua (help), and for your support!
