I can't say enough about my experience here. Such a genuine and knowledgable staff .... the way they encouraged people to walk around and smell each tea to see if it rang true for them. I had no idea tea could taste so good. There was something for everyone there it seemed, from the "Coffee Convert" to the "Hummingbird Nectar".... It was a very rich experience and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone... including kids! What a cool away to introduce them to healthier alternatives (that taste good).

So glad you enjoyed your experience! Be sure to bring the kids back in the summer, it is so much fun wandering around the farm and gazebo in the sunshine... nothing healthier than delicious nutritious tea and playing in the fresh air on a Certified Organic farm!

A nice diversion from the typical tourist stops. The woman in the shop was extremely pleasant and helpful. She went through a thorough explanation of all the teas and their growing process. Offerred delicious samples. Would like to come back during the summer to see more of the farm.

Found the teas quite expensive, but the tasting experience was fun. Expected a discount on purchases after tasting but not available.

Tea is the world's most labor-intensive agricultural product, and we grow it right here in Northern Michigan! What we do not grow ourselves, we source from certified Fair Trade, Organic, and Biodynamic farmers. The price of the tea reflects exceptional flavor and nutritional value, as well as fair wages for all the artisans whose craft contributes to our product. A labor of love yields a product of value... one which we can feel confident drinking and sharing, knowing that its socially- and environmentally-responsible production betters the world and ourselves.

We strive to keep our teas as affordable as possible-- we want everyone to be able to enjoy them! Bear in mind that a little goes a long way. Unlike most bagged teas, one serving of quality loose-leaf tea can usually be steeped at least three times. A single ounce of loose tea or tisane yields approximately 15-25 cups!

This is a really neat tea farm. We tried their heartwarming cinnamon tea at Martha's Leelanau Table in Suttons Bay, MI. We fell in love with it from the first sip, which then lead us to find out where we could purchase it. Our find lead us right to the farm store. When we got to the store there was a friendly welcome by the employee and got to try taste 3 different teas and smell all the different kinds they make. Will differently have to go back some time for a farm tour and try out some different teas!
