Finished my sample of this tea, and it was most impressive. I underestimated the quantity of leaf and ended up with my gaiwan jam-packed with leaf, and got 20-30 infusions out of it. By the very end, it was mostly sweet water, but still pleasant.

I hope to be vacationing in Hawaii in the not-too-distant future, and will try to score some of this while I’m there.

And re: finding Hawaiian teas in Hawaii: I scouted gift shops, grocery stores, health food stores, and airport shops, and found not a whiff of this good local tea—everything I encountered in my touring around Maui was at best tea grown elsewhere but blended/flavored with some herbs/flowers/fruits/extracts from Hawaii.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea for 30 years, but only bought 2 brands of 2 different teas for most of that time. It took me almost 30 years to discover sencha, puerh, and green oolongs. Now I am making up for lost time.

I try to log most of my teas at least once, but then get lazy and stop recording, so # times logged should not be considered as a marker of how much a particular tea is drunk or enjoyed.
