Haleakalā means “house of the sun” in the Hawaiian language, and is the namesake of the dormant volcano that forms all of East Maui. It is also the home to our Maui Tea Farm and our award-winning premium black tea. We grow our artisanal Haleakalā Black Tea in rich, organic soil enhanced by trace minerals deposited from historic volcanic flows.
We meticulously handpick our tea from the first two leaves and bud of our Camellia sinensis bushes to craft an exceptional whole leaf tea.
We grow our tea without using herbicides, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers.
Flavor profile includes notes of apricot, caramel and honey, accompanied by smooth tannin and slight savory notes.
Our handpicked 2021 harvests are now available in limited supply. Please check back soon if you see this product out of stock.
