This bag of loose Māmaki tea brews up to 5 gallons (see instructions below).


This relaxing, soothing herbal tea in the evening perfectly balances your morning coffee brew routine. Māmaki is amazing – for our bodies, and for the environment. Chill out and sleep well while this plant regenerates both you and the native rainforest of Hawaii.

Teas brewed from the ancient plant have antioxidant, polyphenol, and mineral benefits that outperform black, oolong, and even green teas.

Thanks to the antioxidant powerhouses found in Māmaki - catechins, rutin, and chlorogenic acid - the tea has been linked to a wide range of benefits, including neuroprotection, preventing cancer, treating infections, anti-viral, and even boosting your mood. 

The benefits of Māmaki tea include its balanced mineral profile, including zinc and potassium, which leads some naturopaths to use it for treating high blood pressure. 

This Māmaki tea is pesticide-free and grown on a regenerative rainforest farm in Volcano at 4,000 ft.

How to Brew Mamaki Tea

Hot tea: Use 1-2 teaspoons (1g - 2g) of loose māmaki tea per 8 oz boiling water. Steep for 10 minutes.
Iced Mamaki tea: Crumble 1/4 cup (12g) of māmaki in a 2-quart glass jar. Fill the jar with boiling water and steep overnight. Dilute to 1 or more gallons of iced Mamaki tea, or to taste.

More About Mamaki Tea

As a member of the nettle family, mamaki (pipturus albidus) is only grown on the Hawaiian islands. Ranging in size from small shrubs to large trees, mamaki is found in wet forests across the Hawaiian islands except for Niihau and Kahoolawe and commonly features broad leaves of light and dark green with red veins, which is the most popular variety used for mamaki tea. 

Strangely enough, the mamaki plant doesn't have a distinct flowering season, which means that the small green and white flowers can appear at any time of year, developing clusters directly on the stems that hold the large leaves. The fruit itself features a fleeting taste with a subtle sweetness, which makes it ideal as a mamaki tea.

Throughout Hawaiian history, the mamaki plant has been used as a tonic, aspirin and even a red clothing dye due to the red stems and veins characteristic of many mamaki plants. Other uses of mamaki include detox and cleansing, as well as helping to help fight fatigue. Those who drink mamaki tea often describe it as uplifting and invigorating.

Benefits of Mamaki Tea

While various teas have been heralded for their soothing and calming properties, as well as being a great way to boost your immune system or fight inflammation, mamaki tea from Hawaii is no slouch and has been shown to contain high levels of antioxidants -- specifically three types of phyto-chemicals or polyphenols that can provide an outsized benefit when consumed.

The first is known as catechins, which gives mamaki tea the same kind of antioxidant boost found in red wine, chocolate, apples and berries. A second is known as chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant found in carrots, turnips, radishes and burdock. The third is rutin, a flavonoid or plant compound that is found in the polyphenol family. You'll commonly find rutin in red wine, buckwheat, tomato skin and citrus. 

Furthermore, mamaki leaves have more catechins and rutin than green tea, black tea and oolong tea, and the mamaki leaves also contain macronutrients such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, boron and zinc that provide carbohydrates, fat, protein, fibers and minerals when consumed. Research also suggests that mamaki tea's health benefits include helping to fight cancer, lower blood pressure, reduce stress, boost energy, remedy certain digestive issues and generally help to detoxify the body. Some studies have even shown that gray mamaki leaves may inhibit replication of HIV.

Let's look at a those mamaki tea benefits one by one.

Reduce Risk of Cancer

It may sound too good to be true, but the antioxidants found in mamaki tea can reduce risk of a host of diseases due to how they prevent free radical chain reactions that can eventually lead to cell damage and toxic build-up. By neutralizing the free radicals that promote cell damage, mamaki tea can reduce what is largely believed to be the underlying cause of cancer.

Lower Blood Pressure

Even if your doctor hasn't told you to watch your blood pressure, most of us could do with a convenient way to keep our blood pressure down. Because of the polyphenol chlorogenic acid and its presence in mamaki leaves, mamaki tea can help lower blood pressure as well as being a cholesterol-free tea. Additionally, the chlorogenic acid found in mamaki tea can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems.

Help With Digestion

Due to the catechins found in mamaki leaves, mamaki tea can help support good digestive health in a way similar to green tea. In fact, Hawaiian folk medicine has long relied on mamaki leaves to help fight constipation, indigestion, bloating, gas and irritable bowel syndrome. Catechins themselves are anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidative, which is why they're ideal for stomach and gut issues, and mamaki tea also contains more catechins than green, black and oolong tea.

Boost Your Energy

If you tend to reach for that cup of coffee in the morning to help boost your energy and focus, you may be able to get the same effect sans the caffeine with mamaki tea. Whether you're looking to counteract stress, fatigue or a loss of energy, mamaki tea is a great way to refresh and rejuvenate. The lack of caffeine also means that you won't suffer from caffeine withdrawal by integrating it into your routine, which can help fight lethargy and irritability on a day to day basis.

Detox the Body

Among mamaki tea's many health benefits is that mamaki is also believed to help support liver function via the detoxification capabilities of catechins and chlorogenic acid found within. Essentially the entire plant -- including the leaves, bark and stem -- can be consumed as a laxative and for the purposes of blood purification. Dried mamaki leaves can also be used as a cleansing agent.

Side Effects of Mamaki Tea

Unlike coffee that can load you up with too much caffeine and leave you feeling jittery and out of sorts, mamaki tea has no known side effects even after hundreds of years of use by Hawaiians. Even studies of mamaki leaves have indicated no adverse effects, which makes mamaki tea a great addition to any lifestyle or routine.
