About Hawaii, United StatesUnited States of America, located on a series of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean. The climate of Hawaii varies greatly with altitude and topography, and ranges from having extremely high rainfall to being arid in other regions, and also ranges from tropical to quite cold at the highest altitudes (which reach over 13,000 feet).
Hawaii is the largest tea-producing state in the United States, although its output is still so small that it is not an important player in the global market.
Because the cost of living in Hawaii is high even for the US, bulk tea is not an economically feasible crop. The few teas produced here tend to be artisan teas, including black, green, oolong, and white teas, and tend to sell for a very high price as a specialty item.
The Hawaii Tea Society is a group of tea growers that works to promote both tea production and tea culture in Hawaii.
