Japanese Sansho pepper blended with hojicha stems and leaf

 20g

From Ohana Botanic's Creator tea Merchant, Ian: Menehune are forest spirits in the mythology of Hawaii who come to help you with your work. I grew up looking for the menehune who helped clean my room when I was a child, looking into the forests as my family drove home in the evenings from our relative’s house in the mountains above Honolulu.

This hojicha flavoured with Japanese pepper evokes the mystery of the forest with its unique spicy, woody flavour. The sansho pepper ads a bright almost citrus aroma to the tea.
