Backlog:

This was my first (recalled) experience with Mamaki. I may have tried it before but I don’t recollect.

I enjoyed this! It has a very smooth, pleasant flavor that is buttery and sweet and vegetative. It has a very enjoyable texture, like a thinned broth. Very nice to sip.

Sipdown (mom had the other cup). Apparently Mamaki is a Hawaiian version of the nettle plant; I’ve never had nettle tea before, but this is fascinating. It’s like spearmint without the menthol mixed with chamomile. The flavor is a perfect mix between the two. It’s very calming and pleasant. I wouldn’t have picked this up for myself, so I’m glad LiberTEAS put a couple of sachets in my box! It was interesting to try.

This is a very interesting “herbal tea”.

The tea can be brewed/steeped for up to 60 minutes, but I only did mine for 6 minutes per the instructions for a light brew on the package. My tasting notes reflect this.

This herbal tea has a slight phosphoric taste, but I do not say that negatively, it tastes somewhat buttery but with some distinct mineral notes. Perhaps what shocked me the most were the notes of green tea that I got from this, yes this does actually slightly resemble legitimate tea. Given that Mamaki is caffeine free, this makes the herbal tea a solid replacement for true tea when I am trying to limit caffeine intake.

Mamaki tea! First off, mamaki can be steeped for at least 5 minutes – and traditionally is steeped for 1 hour! So I tried it at 5, 15 and 1 hour steepings!

The longer the steep, the richer the flavor. Lots of yam, corn, sweet potato, little herbal and sweet notes. I prefer the longer steeping – even with the long steep, the tea never gets bitter or dry. Mamaki would be the perfect caffeine tea to leave in your tumbler while you sip away.
