This Karigane was selected from a high quality Tencha from Uji, the main producing area for Kyotos and Japans best Matcha. It combines the refined umami and sweetness of Matcha with a well balanced body and aromas reminding of herbs and tard spices. A interesting and gentle tea for daily drinking.

About Tencha:

Tencha is the name given to the tealeaves that become Matcha when ground to a powder. It is ideally shaded for about a month to enhance the amino acids in the young buds, making the tea extra sweet and rich in umami. When buying Tencha you are mostly looking at only the "flesh" of leaves that weren't rolled. Stems and leaf arteries where removed from the rest as they arent giving the desired flavours to the Matcha. Steeped like this Tencha is normally light, flavourful and sweet.

 

About Karigane:

Karigane, word for word 'voice of geese' is the name given to high grade Kukicha taken from high grade teas like Gyokuro or Tencha. It mainly consists of stems and smaller leaves that could'nt be used for the finished teas. They allow to get a taste of highest quality for a fraction of the price of the original material.
