Maui Tea Farm Tours
Sitting on the rolling slopes of the sleepy Mount Haleakala is the Maui Tea Farm, a wonderful 14 acre farm that is truly a garden of Eden! Not only do they grow tea and tisane herbs, they also cultivate many fruit trees and vegetables throughout the property, including oranges, tangerines, lemons, apples, pears, lychees, avocado, olives, blueberries, squash, kale, potatoes, radishes, and arugula. Maui Team Farm’s ultimate goal is to create a self-sustaining paradise and homestead on our bountiful property!
