Global Tea Championship Award Winning Tea

Posted on October 23, 2018 by Andrea de Roode | 0 Comments

We've got a winner!  In October 2018, we earned a Bronze medal for our Maui Tea Farm grown Haleakalā Black Tea at the 2018 Global Tea Championships in Boulder, Colorado.  We entered this richly flavorful Springtime grown black tea into the contest along with other USA-grown teas.  We were among two USA grown tea farms to earn medals in this year's competition.

This is an extreme honor, as our unique Maui grown teas and māmaki herbal tisane are all lovingly grown and processed by hand at our farm in Kula, Maui, Hawaii.  We began growing tea (Camellia sinensis) in 2013 along with māmaki (a caffeine-free native Hawaiian nettle).  We grow all of our teas and tisanes using organic and sustainable agricultural practices, with native Hawaiian koa and ohia trees forming a canopy over our tea plants.  Today we have small batches of our Maui grown black tea and māmaki available for purchase through our PONOinfusions site.

To reserve a minimum of 30 grams for our upcoming 2019 harvests for our award winning Haleakalā Black Tea, please email us at:
