Our friend Eva is offering Canton Tea Co followers the chance to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime tea trip.
Last year we were introduced to Eva Lee, a Hawaiian tea artisan. She was deeply involved in the renaissance of tea cultivation in Hawaii taking advantage of its unpolluted air and clean water to grow unique quality teas. Tea was recently reintroduced to the exotic island in 2000 making a very fresh terroir for tea growing. Using research from World Tea Expo to the College of Tropical Agriculture she is growing both tea and the interest towards it within the country. Eva previously presented to us Hawaii Volcano Green tea and Forest White which received a brilliant reception from the Canton Tea club.
Eva is now offering an opportunity to take part on a Tea Tour as part as her Community Cup campaign. Here you will be situated within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park for three days during the peak of the tea harvesting season. You are invited to learn and meet a community of international like-minded tea drinkers as the USA makes its debut in Tea history. The tour involves first-hand experience of harvesting, processing and cupping of the tea as well as trying delicious tea infused meals and meeting America’s first generation of tea growers. The trip runs from the 4th till the 6th of November and there is very limited space. If you are interested and would like to learn more about the tour do not hesitate to contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
