Pressed Botanical Greeting Cards
A set includes 5 blank greeting cards. Each card is uniquely hand-crafted from native Hawaiian flora. The plant material has been mindfully and respectfully gathered with low-impact, so as to honor ʻāina (land) and keep the habitat intact.
For each purchase, Root & Rise will plant a native tree, shrub, or understory plant into our Pāpā Forest in South Kona, Hawai’i. This effort helps preserve not only our mauka (mountain) habitat, but also coastal (makai) flora and fauna. Our island, a diverse and biologically rich treasure, relies on interconnected ecosystems to provide healthy and abundant water, soil, and air to our plants, animals, and people.
Māmaki Tea (Loose Leaf)
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.
Sustainably grown and harvested in our South Kona Pāpā Forest, our māmaki tea is hand-picked and processed in small batches. As a light to mild tea, the herbaceous flavor with nutty undertones becomes more potent the longer steeped. Both refreshing and soothing, our māmaki tea is naturally caffeine free and can be enjoyed hot or cold.
Through collaborative partnership, Ke Ala O Ka Lā, WannaBee Pono Honey Emporium, and Root & Rise Therapeutic Horticulture intend to co-create inclusive opportunities from "planting to production" to connect to and care for this treasured Hawaiian plant. A portion of proceeds from your purchase support regenerative and community philanthropic projects here on Hawai'i island. Mahalo (thank you) for your support!
please note: This is a 1 ounce bag of loose leaf tea. One big pinch (1-2 tsp) of tea makes one 8oz. cup of tea.
