Hawaiian Mamaki Tea - .5oz
Mamaki is a member of the nettle family, endemic to and currently only growing in the Hawaiian islands. The plant can be small and shrub-like or a large tree. It is typically found, in the wild, in the understory of the wet forest, on most Hawaiian Islands. Mamaki is best known for its refreshing herbal tea and it's medicinal uses. Native Hawaiian Mamaki tea was traditionally used to treat general debilities, lower high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and cleanse the toxins from your blood system as well as to relieve generalized weakness. Mamaki Tea is a Natural Stimulant Without Caffeine that is loaded with macro and micro minerals that contain catechins; these polyphenols stimulate brain activity and boost metabolic rates and are rich in antioxidants.
Place dried leaves of mamaki into a teapot or teacup for each cup that you want to make. Boil water in a tea kettle or pan and then pour it over your mamaki leaves. Allow your tea to steep for about 10 minutes, and then strain it and enjoy with sugar, honey, lemon, milk alternative or other tasty additions.
