Minto Island Growers will be doing a pick and make your own tea class this weekend on Saturday, September the 17th, from 11-3 at the farm. Join Balazs Henger, a local tea expert/enthusiast, for a day of tea picking, processing, and education at the Minto Island Growers tea plot and farm stand.

The class will start with harvesting tea from their nealy 15 year old Camelia Sinesis tea plot, while enjoying an introduction to the history of tea cultivation. Next the class will cover the processing of several types of teas, including green, oolong, and yellow, while tasting various teas along the way. The class will end with a light meal of dishes that feature tea, and most importantly, take home your own hand picked and processed tea!

The class cost is $25. To register, send an email to
