Easy to Hard









The tea world never ceases to surprise us with its variety and complexity. So much so, that we could never hope to design tea experiences for everyone. Do you have a need that wasn't covered by one of our other tours? Want to visit with some tea friends during a time period that isn't covered by our Seasonal Harvest trips or learn about only one specific kind of tea? 

Please don't hesitate to get in touch! We might be able to help and we can most likely point you in the right direction if we can't.


A specialized tea tour for you and your friends.

An in depth study of just one kind of tea processing.

An 'out of season' trip that fits your schedule. 

A series of classes to fit your skill level and taste preferences. 

A specific buying trip searching for a particular type of tea.



How much will it cost? 

Totally depends on what you would like to do!

Can you do a tea trip at any time of year?

The short answer is yes. Just give us enough time to plan it. 4-6 weeks out would be the bare minimum lead time for us. 4-6 months would be better!

When should we visit?

April to May is the spring harvest season, October to November is the winter season and late august to early September is the fall season but we can always find someone picking tea. Just let us know when would be the best time for you and we will see if we can make it work!
