Tea growers Chiu Leong and Eva Lee grow, hand-harvest and handcraft this rare tea at their 4000 feet elevation garden in the rainforest of Kilauea volcano under a canopy of native Ohia trees and Hapu’u ferns. This tea is gently harvested by plucking the top bud and two leaves, while Eva and Chiu are accompanied by the melodies of the Hawaiian Apapani songbird. The leaves are long, loose and downy and brew into a rich, clear, golden infusion resembling Chardonnay. The flavor is floral and sweet, deeply satisfying and comforting. Truly the first shade-grown forest tea of Hawaii.
10 gram package yields 20 cups of steeped tea. Three or four infusions with 208°F water.
Limited amount available. This is truly a rare treat!
