Shaka Tea | Blue Magic Tea
Shaka Tea’s Blue Magic blend is made primarily with māmaki, which grows in Hawaiʻi and nowhere else in the world and is also treasured in the Hawaiian culture for its medicinal properties. The adaptogenic “superleaf” of the māmaki plant, grown sustainably and hand harvested from the ancient forests of the island of Hawaiʻi, is blended with butterfly pea and lemongrass for a caffeine-free, color-changing tea when you add a drop of citrus..
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.
