Tea, Oolong "Mauka"
Whole-leaf | Tea Hawaii & Co
Volcano Tea Garden tea estate grower Mike Riley of Volcano Mauna Loa Estates at 3600-foot elevation. Mauka (meaning “to face towards the mountain”) is a tea that is artfully consistent and vibrantly colored with slightly oxidized edges. This tea steeps into a sophisticated, delicate, pale yellow infusion. The flavor is elusive and complex. It is flinty, crisp, smooth and cooling, with mild tropical notes of green papaya and honey that add to the complexity of this enticing tea.
