Karigane | Green Tea
Description: These gorgeous, emerald-green tea leaves are blended with soft Granny Smith-green tea stalks. The cup is sweet, gentle, bright, and fresh. This tea is a type of kukicha.
This tea was produced by a family owned tea company that was founded in 1869 in Shizuoka, Japan. It’s owned and run by the same family for five generations now. We've worked with these folks for six years. Their teas, their skill, and their warmth continue to astound me. Their tea factory is located near the Nissaka area of Shizouka, not far from Mt. Fuji.
