Sencha Karigane is the perfect everyday organic Japanese green tea. Named after the stems which are a tea by-product obtained during the refining process of Gyokuro and Sencha tea leaves after harvest. As one of the steps of refining, the tea leaves and stems/twigs are sorted and separated from each other. The seperated stems can be used to make #Kukicha, stem tea, also called 'Karigane' in the Kyoto area.
1st flush Sencha leaves and stems grown in Kagoshima with delightful freshly cut grass aroma, a pretty yellow liquor and refreshing floral, citrusy notes.
Easy to infuse, this tea shows no astringency and is a great fit for informal everyday drinking. Try accentuating the taste with cold or room temperature brewed (Mizudashi), try infusing in cold sparkling water to brighten. Comforting green tea daily ritual.
