Join us in the Yoga Barn for some fun as you learn about teas grown in Hawaii. The tea or ‘kea’ crops planted in Hawaii are maturing and will become more prevalent to the tea drinking community over time. We will sample a variety of teas, show photos and footage from a small family farm on the Big Island and enjoy live traditional Hawaiian dance (Na Hana Nu’i Maui, Mele O’hana) and partake in a mini dance workshop E Pili Mai, as you sip tea and listen to the sounds of the Hawaiian islands. Maholo!

Just in time for Independence Day! Ever wonder what was in those teas they dumped in the Boston Harbor way back when? This special tea event will feature those teas, as well as the very tea Thomas Jefferson sipped while writing our beloved Constitution. You will also learn about Liberty Teas which were the herbal blends created by women for women after the tea was dumped so they could continue their tea traditions, even without tea. Please join us in our special tribute to our Independence with tea and the ‘e pluribus unum players’. We will feature teas handcrafted for this special occasion by quality tea purveyors. Exact date TBD. We hope for July or August.
