Woman-led and cofounded, Shaka Tea is the first in the ready to drink iced tea market to use and brew māmaki. Māmaki is a rare and ancient superleaf that can only be found in the Hawaiian archipelago. Shaka Tea is dedicated to the conservation of the ʻāina (land) and community by which they build their own supply chain. By growing māmaki, they are restoring the island’s essential ecosystem as well as creating a habitat for the pulelehua, an endangered and native butterfly that depend on the māmaki plant.
Shaka Tea’s line of iced teas are all caffeine free, sugar free, sustainably grown, and sweetened with monk fruit. Recent awards include 2020 U.S.A. Taste Champion and 2020 U.S.A. Beverage Champion by Chefs in America, “Best Low/No Sugar Drink Award” in the 2020 InnoBev Awards presented by Zenith Global, and was the #2 Fastest Growing Company in Hawaiʻi. What people love and appreciate about Shaka Tea is their commitment to the health of their customers and support of local farmers, as well as the abundance of unique flavors they continue to put out in their teas.
