My husband and I stopped into this shop when we were in Traverse City. I was looking at the teas and inquiring about the caffeine levels when the owner took over for the woman who was helping us and directed us to the tea bar. She then gave us some spiel about some high anti oxidant powder they sell there... More

Hello out there. My name is Angela and I am the owner of Light of Day Organics. I am very sorry to hear that you had a negative experience at our farm. We will use it here in the future as a learning tool to prevent confusion about samples vs. tea bar purchases. Again, I'm very saddened to hear that... More

The owner/proprietor was a nurse who cured her Crohns disease with organic teas on Maui. She is very knowledgeable on her products, offers many "sniff" areas for a wide variety of teas including free samples, and most of her teas are grown locally, a big surprise for northern MI. Her teas are very expensive, and this comes from someone who... More

This was a curiosity stop after finding a brochure at a Bed and Breakfast in the area. We like an occasional cup of tea! The teas are custom mixed to create some of the finest teas.

While sharing a girls weekend we strived to include activities in addition to winery visits. A visit to Light of Day Organic Teas provided a wonderful relaxed, zen moment in our day. The staff is knowledgeable and passionate about tea. Came away with the Creamy Earl Grey which might just make this coffee lover give up coffee...

Taste test for Matcha shots, the mixture was very satisfying. My first trip to the best organic tea place in the nature.

Is there anything more delightful than to inhale the aroma of an award-winning tea, taste its features on your palate, then roam the garden, where a new leaf is being cultivated to survive the climate of the 45th parallel? It's unparalleled, and even more so when you consider how gracious they were towards our children.

A great place for tea lovers to visit. Certainly not an all day event, but nice to browse the shop and gardens for an hour or so. The staff is very knowledgeable about tea and they have a lot of information you can browse. Sign up for an educational class if you crave more!
