Description

Description

Gyokuro Karigane green tea offers the deliciously luxuriant aroma and taste of a premium Gyokuro tea for a fraction of the cost. This is because Gyokuro Kerigane green tea is made from the stems and veins of the only highest-quality Gyokuro tea leaves, which provides it with a distinctive sweetness of taste.

The reason for the typically high price tag of Gyokuro Karigane green tea is due to its rarity. This is first because there are fewer organic growers of this type of tea in Japan, compared to the more common Sencha tea plant. Secondly, knowing that it is a highly prized type of tea, growers will often choose to share it with their friends and family rather than sell it for profit.

However, Gyokuro Kerigane green tea’s high price isn’t merely due to its rarity. It is also highly sought after for its deliciously sweet aroma and rich levels of teanin. This composition comes as a result of it being grown in the shade for up to 30 days before it is harvested. Gyokuro Kerigane can also be used to manufacture a type of emerald tinged liquor.

While not a difficult tea to brew, there are many different ways of brewing Gyokuro Kerigane at many different temperatures. This variety is another reason for its revered place in Japan’s highly ritualistic tea culture along with its sweet taste.
