The 111-HAWAII PROJECT has started uploading special videos that feature interviews with its participants. For the seventh installment, we released an interview video of Matthew Nagatori, the president of Kuahiwi O Makamae which is a company that manufactures and sells native Hawaiian herbal tea known as “Mamaki tea.” Please take a look at the video.

Mamaki tea is an herbal tea made by drying the leaves of Mamaki plants, which are native to Hawaii and had been growing before the people of Polynesia settled in Hawaii. It is said that ancient Hawaiians drank the tea to purify their minds and bodies. Mamaki tea has recently become a popular Hawaiian souvenir, especially for health-conscious women.
