How Kayo-Tea Started
Mint has been my favourite plant since I started studying horticulture. I love all the unique aromas from all the different varities. One day back in the summer of 2015 i decided to build a garden bed full of all my favourite mint plants; Spearmint, peppermint, ginger mint, chocolate mint, apple mint, orange mint, strawberry mint, sweet lemon mint and pear mint.
Later that fall i when i harvested these plants to make some teas, I decided to sell a few bags to some friends and family. It was then when a family member of mine suggest I pursue this idea as business. Now after many hours of gardening, here I am supplying tea lovers with fresh local organic herbal teas.
