Sourced from Uji, Japan. Karigane green tea is tea made of stem and stalks of tea tree. Sweet, nutty and green and very low in caffeine.
Karigane is a regional Japanese green tea, a byproduct when making sencha and matcha. It is traditionally drunk mainly by tea farmers as not to waste the teas, but also for its light and sweet flavours.
To compliment its sweet green and nutty aromas, we added cornflower to give it a bit of blossom highlights.
To get the full profile of this tea, it is best to brew first brew at 1-1.5 mins, and re-brew the same leaves 3-4 times each time brew a bit longer. That way, you will truly be on a tea journey.
