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.
