What is Māmaki?
Mamaki is an endemic plant to Hawaii.  It has been utilized by the Native Hawaiian for over 800 generations.
What are the Native Hawaiian benefits of using māmaki? 
Māmaki is used to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and for general debility amongst other uses.
Other Native Hawaiian uses for Māmaki?
Ancient Hawaiians had many uses for māmaki.  The māmaki berries were used for mothers and children suffering from ʻea (coated tongue thrush) or paʻaoʻao (latent childhood disease).    The bark was pounded, much like wauke, to create kapa (bark cloth) and the wood would also be made into kapa beaters.  
Aside from māmaki, what other tea blends do you carry?​
Māmaki Native Hawaiian Herbal Tea (MNHHT) offers four different types of blends in addition to our shredded Māmamki tea; Māmaki & ʻUhaloa Herbal Tea, Māmaki & Kīnehe Herbal Tea, Māmaki & Wāpine Herbal Tea and ʻŌlena Blend Herbal Tea.
What are the benefits of using ʻuhaloa, kīnehe, wāpine and ʻōlena by Native Hawaiians? 
ʻUhaloa is used for colds, sore throat, and asthma months other uses.
Kīnehe is used to lower blood sugar, stimulate the immune system and as an anti-inflammatory amongst other uses.
Wāpine is used as a fever reliever and to improve circulation amongst other uses.
ʻŌlena is used to enhance the immune system amongst other uses.
When should I have a cup of Māmaki Herbal Tea or Māmaki Herbal Tea blends?
Māmaki Herbal Tea & Māmaki Herbal Tea blends can be enjoyed at any time throughout the day.  All herbal teas are naturally caffeine-free, gluten-free and cholesterol-free.
How should I prepare the herbal tea?
Boil 8 cups of water, add one tablespoon of the herbal tea and bring back to a boil.  Remove the tea from heat and allow the tea to steep for fifteen minutes.  This will allow the essential oils and flavors to infuse into the water.  We prefer the herbal tea to be steeped overnight for a deeper infusion.  If you desire a stronger brew, simply add more herbal tea to the suggested recommendations.  Drink hot or cold and enjoy.
What is a cold brew?​
Although most people prefer a hot brew, some may enjoy a cold brew.  To make a cold brew, add 1 tablespoon of herbal tea to 8 cups of purified water in a sterilized container.  Stir and place in the refrigerator for 12 to 14 hours.  You will notice a lighter color, lighter flavor, and sweeter taste.
What can I use to compliment my herbal tea?
Honey or agave are great natural sweeteners that compliment māmaki well.  Mint, lemon and limes are also a great accompaniments to a delicious cup of Māmaki Herbal Tea or Māmaki Herbal Tea blends.
