Shaka Tea | Sunrise Tea$11.99
The māmaki plant is endemic to Hawaiʻi, meaning it grows nowhere else in the world. Shaka Tea’s Sunrise Tea is made primarily from the adaptogenic “superleaf” of the māmaki plant, grown sustainably and hand harvested from the ancient forests of the “Big Island.” Inspired by the warmth of a Hawaiian sunrise, this blend also contains local hibiscus, lemon and rosehip. Māmaki is prized in Hawaiian culture for its medicinal properties and this Sunrise Tea contains numerous detoxifiers and powerful antioxidants in each cup.
Shaka Tea supports restorative agriculture and Hawaiʻi’s economic development. They have given away over 25,000 māmaki seedlings to help small, local farmers begin their journey with this ancient medicinal plant. They source from 12 Hawaiʻi-based, independent farmers and always pay a premium for their “hero” ingredient. Supporting the continued cultivation of the māmaki plant also restores the critical habitat of the endangered pollinator butterfly, pulelehua, or the Kamehameha Butterfly.
