Mauna Kea Premium 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 second flush from April through May.
Beautifully twisted, tippy leaves yield a light- to medium-bodied and smooth infusion that is richer and more complex than the First Flush. Savory, umami, vegetal, briny, and sweet notes.
