  1. How can we join?

    We first came to the idea of growing tea after visiting the Azores Islands in the Atlantic where tea is grown on small land holdings.

    We are located in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia where it seldom snows or freezes – where Summers are dry and sometimes hot.

    Where can we get seedlings?

  2. It is fantastic – In October I visited the Azores Island and discovered that tea can thrive in a milder climate – I am now hoping to grow tea the Fraser Valley of BC, 60 miles east of Vancouver – winters will pose a challenge but without at challenge, everybody would be doing it and it would have little meaning –

    Anybody know a source of cuttings?

  4. I am interested in growing tea in New Jersey. Are there any tea farms here now that you know of? and what would I need to grow the tea I am guessing a greenhouse but beyond that I do not know. Thank you.
