From Arbor Teas

We couldn’t be more delighted to offer this very rare and exceptional organic green tea grown in the United States. Cultivated on the misty slopes of the tallest mountain in the Pacific Ocean, this tea is harvested and manufactured in micro-lots on the Mauna Kea Tea Farm in Hawaii. Its namesake, Mauna Kea (pronounced “MOUN-na KAY-a”), means “white mountain” and provides a rich base of volcanic soil for this small, family-owned tea farm tucked away at 2,000 ft above sea level on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island.

Handpicked from the newest spring growth and pan-fired, this premium Hawaiian organic tea is a work of art. Each dried twist reminds of a bonsai limb artfully created to reveal the whole leaf and bud. Its uniform dark green color tinged with a slight bluish hue is tipped with a silver bud. The nose catches a wild greens aroma with floral notes. The brew is a beautifully clear, light yellow-green that is subtly complex: delicate; smooth; buttery; green; and sweet. Enjoy the slight dryness felt on the backend and note how it becomes more astringent as it cools. A true delight!

The organic certified Mauna Kea Tea Farm uses Masanobu Fukuoka Natural Farming. With a belief that the farm is ultimately a self-sustaining ecosystem, Mauna Kea employs a completely natural approach to farming using only weeds, cover crops, and mulch to increase fertility.

It’s pleasant enough and surely if you don’t like vegetal Japanese teas, it’s a decent alternative in that regard. I didn’t think it boasted a whole lot of flavour, but maybe that was a reflection of my taste buds than a flaw with the tea itself. Very smooth, very light and easy to drink.

I finally bought some new teas. can you believe it? I went all June without any new tea. Crazy!

I’ve been wanting to try Hawaiian tea for a while, so I was excited to try finally get some. It’s a very delicate flavored green tea; buttery and very little astringency. I tend to prefer stronger flavored green teas, but this is still a very pleasant cup.
