Ingredient: Organic Gyokuro (parts used: stem)
Karigane (kah-ree-gah-né) green tea is naturally sweet and buttery with a bright green dew. It is known as a “Hidden treasure of the Japanese tea.” Karigane tea is made with stems from Gyokuro tea, a shade-grown tea (the same as Matcha), full of tender loving care, which increases the Umami or rich and satisfactory flavor of this tea plant. Due to the lower caffeine level in stems, Karigane offers blissful richness, natural sweetness, and calm alertness. Our Karigane tea is grown at renowned Sakamoto Tea Farm in Kagoshima, Japan. Try the finest of the fine loose leaf teas!
