"Tea of the United States - also known as "TOTUS" is the first national tea competition specifically for USA grown tea. The TOTUS Awards is open to all tea farms, researchers and beginning growers whose tea crop origin is cultivated in US soil.
TOTUS Awards will be held November 2015, headquartered in Hawaii,
hosted by the Hawaii Tea Society in partnership with the Volcano Art
Center, The Kohala Center, Big Island Resource Conservation and
Development Council and Hawaii Farmers Union United."
Any grower can participate and they would love bloggers to write about it!
They are hoping to encourage origin pride of US based tea growers.
