From KTeas

Each sip of this black tea reveals new dimensions in the flavor profile. The terroir of Hawaii imbues these high-quality leaves with a clean, smooth, refined flavor profile in which you will likely find no astringency nor bitterness. Some of the growers’ descriptors serve best: Crystalline amber infusion. Thin, crisp body. Delicate notes of caramel, varley malt, and rice syrup. Slight taste of roasted sweet potato.

Thanks LiberTEAs!

I am very VERY excited to sample these Tea Hawaii Teas!!! Woot!

Dry – this really DOES smell like Sweet Potatoes! Neat!

This ‘infuses’ very light in color a very faded yellow/brown/with slight orange hue.

Post infusion the aroma is a little less of a sweet potato but still a little bit there with a barley-veggie soup partner that comes in to play! It’s very unique!

Yum. The flavor is very tasty but quite…meek…not that THAT is a bad thing…just that it isn’t a strong flavored nor a bold or brash black tea!

It says it’s grown in the Hakalau area and processed in Volcano Growing elevation…is it weird that I associate this fact with this flavor? I has a bit of a charcoal-likeness to it like you would find in charcoal oolongs, for example, more specifically with the Life In Teacup Charcoal Oolongs which I very much enjoy!

As this cools at room temperature it gets naturally sweeter and sweeter and I think it’s just FAB! Neat tea!


These teas are actually from KTeas.

Amazing! The more I try Hawaiian teas, the more I like them. This is excellence in a tea cup.

Lighter than I expected, almost Oolong-like in its texture. It has very little astringency. Nice complexity. Malty, sweet, and I am even getting that rice syrup note as mentioned in the description. The bit of astringency that I notice here is somewhat starchy.

A wonderful tea.


How interesting, I didn’t realise that Hawaii grew tea at all!
