A great farm-to-table tour, you have the opportunity to learn about the history and importance of this herbal drink, locally known as “bittas”. You get an overview at Herbal Healers Tea Bar in Hopkins Village before adventuring out to the farm on the Hopkins Road. You will harvest your own collection of herbs and barks as the guide walks you through the farm telling you the medicinal and traditional uses of the different plants, herbs and barks. We will then return to the Tea Bar to preserve the herbs in alcohol; you get to make your own bottle of bittas! The owner, Krishna Castillo, has been making local wine and bitters for many years, learning the skills and knowledge from his elders. In 2015, Krishna was featured on The Travel Channel where his bitters were highlighted. It’s recommended to bring along extra cash as there are many lovely teas and gifts to be purchased at the Herbal Healer’s Tea Bar. This is a half day tour or about four hours.
