Nakazen: Okinawan Health King

琉球草木根皮茶 健王

50g Bag

The Okinawa Health King tea is made from a blend of 41 natural ingredients to support one's health (ingredients list below).

The base is guava leaves and with the rest of the ingredients, this tea will support your day-to-day health. Nakazen recommends this tea for those who are thinking about natural dietoing methods, those who enjoy fatty/oily foods, and to those who want to glow with beauty. This tea can be enjoyed cold in the summer time and hot in the winter. 

Nuchigusui (ぬちぐすい) is a saying that belongs to the daily lives of people living in Okinawa and can be directly translated to mean, "life medicine". The significance is more expansive and can refer to the satisfaction felt after eating a good meal, experiencing something that makes one feel lighter, and feeling peace with oneself.

A note from the founder Katsuo Nakamoto 

"It all started from my wish for everyone to live a healthy, happy life...

I was hospitalised during my late twenties due to a kidney disease caused by overwork and stress. One day while I was at the hospital a friend of mine told me about a tea made of “kumis kuching (orthosiphon aristatus or cat’s whiskers)”. Without having much knowledge on this particular tea, I decided to try drinking it. To my surprise, the kidney got better after a while, and that is when I felt and experienced the effect of "kumisukuchin" tea. Once I left the hospital, I wanted to spread the word about my experience with this tea. This is how I got into the business, which I continue on until today.

I hope we will be able to provide products that will help support your healthy, happy life."

So many ingredients!

There are so many ingredients in this blend but it works. The flavour is very balanced and very pleasant. I really like the longevity blend so had to try this.
