Minto Island Tea Company hosted an open house today that included a tour of their tea production.


Although they are currently harvesting from only a small number of plants, they have been growing tea for over twenty-five years.






We also heard from their tea propagator, Jill, who had a lot of information to share. They had quite a few tea plants grown from seed. We took advantage of that and bought another forty (40) plants that were two to three years old, although they are still in cone-tainers.


Afterwards, we visited their farm stand where we had the privilege of meeting and talking with Sally, Elizabeth's mother. She was fun to talk with and made the farm stand the best part of the visit!
