Naikela Botanicals Perfects Their Tea Blends

Hawaii-based Naikela Botanicals develops plant superfood tea powders using their own farmed ingredients. With a commitment to sustainability in farming and manufacturing, they are set on developing the best cup of tea for their customers. In fact, Aaron Moeller, the founder of Naikela, has dedicated much of his life to creating the perfect tea blend.

In this pursuit, they have developed a group of five elite tea powders. These blends are the result of 20 years of constant R&D. 

The key to their formulation is the hand-picked and naturally dried herbs from their sustainable farm. They use a patented and unique “sun-powered, solar dehydration system”. The herbs are then ground into powder and combined into unique blends for nourishing and mostly caffeine-free tea blends. Research and development in this process covers the formulation as well as the techniques used to process each herb, and with the culmination of 5 great blends, Maikela Botanicals is only getting started. They will continue on this path, working to expand their product line and add new, delicious tea blends to their line.
