  • Description

Our Fall Breeze Karigane is a green tea that was produced in Mie Prefecture in Japan.  Karigane is a green tea that is created from the stems of a high grade Japanese tea.  These particular stems are from kabuse tea (kabusecha).  This Karigane has been shaded to increase the theanine and amino acid contents, which gives the tea a very unique taste and increases the quality.  

Fall Breeze Karigane has been shaded for 2 weeks.  It has a very nice fruity/spinach smell.  The initial taste of the tea has some umami notes of cooked spinach that give way to a nice fruity sweetness.  The tea has a heavy body, which makes it satisfying to drink.

Each packet contains 100 grams of tea.

To brew:

  • Use around 4-6 grams per 200 mL (7 oz)
  • Use water that is below boiling around 70˚C (158˚F)
  • 30 seconds per steep
  • Steep up to 3 times (or more)
These brewing instructions are just guidelines.  If you like your tea stronger; feel free to add more leaves, brew with hotter water, or steep for a longer time.  Same goes if you like your tea lighter.  I generally like to increase steeping times slightly after each steep.  Everyone's taste, teaware, and water is different so use these guidelines to find what works best for you! :)
