April 2015 - Karigane from Mie

This month we selected an amazing Karigane (かりがね) from the prefecture of Mie (三重). Karigane Kukicha (茎茶), also called Bocha (棒茶), is a tea blend made of stems, stalks, and twigs. Karigane is a kind of Kukicha made exclusively from Gyokuro (玉露) plants. Gyokuro is a special kind of Sencha (煎茶) grown in the shade, producing tea leaves vibrant green in color and rich with umami flavor. Karigane is naturally very low in caffeine. Its taste is lighter and sweeter
