Māmaki, an endemic Hawaiian plant in the nettle family, has been known for its traditional healing properties. The small tree grows vigorously in the native forest understory, and is an important component of preserving our island ecosystems. Root & Rise Hawaiʻi’s māmaki is sustainably harvested and propagated in the Pāpā ahupuaʻa in South Kona.
Your purchase of māmaki tea not only supports the vitality of our island’s natural landscape, but also improves the wellness of our treasured community. A product with purpose, 100% of māmaki tea proceeds is channeled directly into Root & Rise Hawaiʻi programs, which provide free, community-based mental health support.
Launched in collaboration with Ke Ala O Ka Lā and WannaBee Pono Honey Emporium, our māmaki tea has helped sustain Root & Rise programs that address mental health stigma, create a sense of belonging and purpose, foster connection to place, and facilitate integration into the community.
