Mauna Kea Island Organic is a green tea from Mauna Kea Tea. This small, family-run organic garden was established in 2007. It is located on the northeastern side of the Big Island of Hawaii at an elevation about 1,000 feet. The hand-harvested and hand-processed, small-batch production using traditional pan-firing methods yields some unique teas that are meant to be savored. Three leaves and a bud pluck is harvested from June through August.
Beautifully twisted, leaves yield a light- to medium-bodied, clean, and balanced infusion with vegetal, sweet, and savory notes. This is the strongest of the three teas that we offer from this garden.
