A personal tea garden in Georgia? Yes, you heard it right, we are doing it again. Two years ago, 68 other Renegades joined us on our journey. People from 12 countries, from Sweden to the USA, each adopting a small tea garden at Rioni Estate. A plantation that had been abandoned for 30 years and which we wished to bring back from oblivion. A couple of months ago our fellow farmers received the first harvest from their very own rehabilitated tea gardens - pure, chemical-free Georgian tea!

And now we are ready to welcome new people to the Renegade tea farmers community. During March 2020 we will allocate an additional 46 tea gardens in the Renegade community garden next to the plots which found an owner already in 2018. Adopting a bed of tea bushes means that for the next 25 years you get to enjoy some good, chemical-free tea from your very own tea bushes. It also means that you will be a part of the story of Georgian tea, helping us to save the abandoned tea plantations and to give them a new life. 

Sounds interesting? Here's how to do it:

  • Choose a preferred plot from the map. Want the garden to be on the side of the hill or facing the river Rioni - this is up to you!
  • Choose how much tea you want - Every year you get half of the produce of your garden. In 3-4 years when the bushes have matured, 1 m2 gives you ca 20 g of tea per year.  Therefore, from the smallest area with 60 myou will get ca 1,2 kg of tea (ca 24 packages, that is 480 cups!) per year. The biggest garden with 450 m2 gives you ca 9 kg of tea ( ca 180 packages, that is 3600 cups!) per year. You can see the estimates when you click on a specific tea garden on the map.
  • Click on the "adopt" button and register your commitment with a pre-payment for your tea for the next 25 years.  No additional payments for tea are needed during those years, you only pay for shipping. The shipping fees vary based on your address and the amount of tea, preliminary estimates you can find here.

As the initial 46 gardens were sold out in 2 days and there were many more of you who still wanted to get their very own tea garden, then we measured an additional 26 plots at the Renegade Community Garden. Find you garden below and welcome to the community :)
