Sencha Karigane offers a rich and full aroma and taste, which in many respects is richer than classic Sencha. Karigane comprises not only leaves but also other parts of the tea plant, which are removed in the production of classic Sencha. Unlike Kukicha teas, which usually contain thinner and thicker stalks, stems and the lower, veined parts of the leaves, and which are usually produced from material designated for the production of Sencha or Matcha teas, Sencha Karigane teas contain only stems and the larger lower part of the leaves of Sencha tea. Another difference in comparison with Kukicha teas is the use of a higher quality class of tea, which has a fundamental impact on the flavour of the resulting infusion.
Sencha is harvested several times a year, and teas from the earlier harvests are considered the best quality. Our Sencha Karigane is an Ichibancha, and therefore originates from the first harvest. In comparison with other teas Sencha contains the most catechins, since it grows in direct sunlight without shade, and is thus an ideal tool in the battle against cancer. Sencha Karigane contains less caffeine than classic Sencha.
