Tea, Black "Makai" - 12g

$15.00Price

Whole-leaf | Tea Hawaii & Co.

 

A tea with a crisp body yielding delicate notes of caramel, barley malt with hints of chocolate, and a slight taste of roasted sweet potato.

 

Johnny’s Garden tea estate grower John Cross of Hakalau at 900-foot elevation. Makai (meaning “to face towards the sea”) is a black tea that is handcrafted with both sinensis and assamica leaves that steep into a crystalline amber infusion. This tea’s flavor profile is smooth and refined with no astringency or bitterness even when steep for long periods. A crisp body that yields delicate notes of caramel, barley malt with hints of chocolate, and a slight taste of roasted sweet potato. Each sip warms, refreshes, and reveals new dimensions of flavor.
