    Hawaiian Mamaki Tea Bag Pouch

    The smooth flavor of Kilani Brew's Mamaki Tea blend comes from selecting the best red, pink, and light green Mamaki varietals. It comes in a tea bag pouch and is available at Pop-Up Mākeke. 

    The Mamaki (Pipturis albidus) is a thornless tree from the nettle family.  Endemic to our Islands, Mamaki was brought to our shores by early Polynesian voyagers. Practitioners of Laʻau Lapaʻau (Hawaiian Herbology) cherished the delightful and calming Mamaki for its alleged traditional medicinal properties, including the purported ability to cleanse, detoxify, reduce fatigue, uplift, and strengthen the body.  Mamaki tea is naturally caffeine-free, so it is a perfect drink for any time of day. 

    The University of Hawai‘i’s College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources verified that Mamaki tea has significant levels of antioxidants and helps address depression, fatigue, insomnia, irritability, and digestive and liver functions. The Journal of Food Science found that Mamaki tea has therapeutic value in regulating blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol and reduces inflammation.

    Each leaf is handpicked, and each product is carefully packed by hand to ensure a delicious and relaxing experience for both novice and consummate tea drinkers alike. The mamaki tea has a bouquet of fresh clean hay, an herbaceous body, and a light mint finish. On the palate, it possesses a nutty, earthy, and roasted flavor with herbal afternotes, developing a subtle sweetness the longer the tea is left to steep.

    Recommended Preparation

    1. Place one tea bag in a 6-ounce or 8-ounce teacup.
    2. Pour boiling water into the cup and let steep for 10 - 20 minutes or until a rich color develops.  Mamaki tea can be steeped for an extensive period of time without developing a bitter taste.
    3. Remove your tea bag, relax, and enjoy your cup of invigorating Mamaki tea!
