Karigane Kukicha Green Tea, Japan
Highlly prized, yet virtually unknown in the west, rich and fulfilling Karigane is made only from Gyokuro green tea stems. This is a Japanese "twig tea" made in the traditional style. It is made only from Gyokuro green tea, which has more green character and is much less woody than other green teas. This is a tea not to be missed.
Karigane Kukicha Green Tea Jar, 2 oz
Steeping the perfect cup: Fill your kettle with fresh, filtered water. Bring it to just short of a boil, and use a bit to preheat your teapot or cup. Place 2 tablespoons of leaves per 6 oz cup (experiment to find your perfect amount) into your pot or infusing basket. Pour water over the leaves and steep for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove the leaves and serve.
Get to know the tea. Try it gong-fu style - use a lot of leaf and short steeps for multiple infusions.
Please Note: In order to deliver our wonderful new teas to you as quickly as possible, we are packing them in our honey jars (just for now). The actual weight of the tea is listed on this web page. The weight on the front of the jar is for honey, not tea. Each tea varies in density and the contents of the jar may settle during shipping. That said, not all jars will be filled to the rim. Please don't worry if, upon receipt, yours doesn't look completely full.
