Juicy and intensely purple maqui berry blended with a hand-rolled dark green tea leaf. Produces a medium golden liquor, rich in antioxidants. Kai’s Maqui Berry was awarded the 2017 Global Tea Championship Silver Medal.
The Maqui berry (pronounced mah-key), is a vibrantly purple super-fruit growing prolifically in the wilds of South America. This berry, also known as Chilean Wineberry, contains the highest anti-oxidant value of any known berry. It is said to have up to eight times the anti-oxidant levels of Acai berries.
Our berries are picked in the temperate rainforests of the Chiloé Island and sent to us by the Lewis family. Chiloé, the second largest island in the Chilean archipelago lies on the western border of the beautiful Pategonia region of South America.
The Ceylon Green Tea
Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon until 1972, is a tropical Island off of the southeastern tip of India. This island is known for producing gourmet black tea with the appellation “Ceylon Tea” still in use. However, we have found the rare green tea produced in the Badulla District of south-central Sri Lanka to be some of the finest green tea we have ever come across.
Our hand rolled Ceylon green tea has a bright and fresh flavor, less grassy and vegetal than most green teas but packed with all of the same green tea goodness.
