Mauna Kea Premium First Flush 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. Two leaves and a bud pluck is harvested during the limited production first flush from February through March.
Beautifully twisted, tippy leaves yield a light-bodied, viscous, and smooth infusion with sweet, savory, and vegetal notes.
