THE ISLAND ETHOS
At Pacific Tea, we are blessed to have a growing diversity of cultures and backgrounds. Every day, we strive to cultivate an authentic and passionate island ethos.
As shown below, the Pacific Islands comprises of three main groups: Polynesians, Melanesians and Micronesians. Although each island national is oceans apart, distinct from the rest, they share a common desire - to promote a sense of unity. It's been refreshing to witness the re-emergence of Pacific Island cultural appreciation in western society, particularly a collective effort from the Youth to represent a 'One-nesia'.
Hopefully you'll be able to learn a thing or two about our Pacific neighbours with us!
