Kilinoe Sample


Kilinoe "misty rain" is an eco-grown tea from the volcanic slopes of Mauna Loa, Big Island, Hawaii.

Kilinoe is organically grown on a small tea estate with a system called "eco-farming". The tea plants are grown under a canopy of endemic plant species at 3000-foot elevation and are irrigated with a 100,000-gallon pond filled with Asian catfish and koi.

Hawaii's fertile volcanic soil and island mists make it an ideal spot for tea farming.


Tealeaves are hand-harvested, then hand-rolled and hand-fired (pan-roasted) in a traditional Chinese fashion for a nuanced, complex flavor profile.

Kilinoe is an amazing introduction to Hawaii-grown tea; a mildly-sweet and fragrant tea that never over-steeps.

One heaping spoon (~2.5grams) per 6 oz of 170'F water. Steep 2-3 minutes for the first infusion and an additional minute for the subsequent infusions.
