Kukicha Karigane 'Wild Goose' Green Tea

From £8.00
Product code: 17553

Availability: In stock

This tea is made with the stems and precisely cut leaves of the famous 'Gyokuro' tea, which remain after the production of the first flush tea leaf used to make the prized Gyokuro. The result is a tea both low in caffeine and mild in character. It is mildly nutty and has a slightly creamy, sweet flavour with some notes of fruit and flowers.

Details

Kuki is the Japanese word for stick. 'Wild Goose' is translated as Karigane in Japan. This describes that the tea is made with the stems and precisely cut leaves of the famous 'Gyokuro' tea, which remain after the production of the first flush tea leaf used to make the prized Gyokuro. The result is a tea both low in caffeine and mild in character. It is mildly nutty and has a slightly creamy, sweet flavour with some notes of fruit and flowers. It is popularly used by those on a macrobiotic diet. This is the highest quality Kukicha available and it is grown on the island of Kyushu, meaning ‘Fog’ island.

LOVE that the Japanese are back. This tea is yes creamy and nutty like the shop says but I also get a lemony/minty aftertaste that rounds off the tea well. (Posted on 27/03/2014)
