Harvested in first flush, this blend combines value with superb taste. 

Unique and sweeter than other varieties of Sencha, our Sencha Karigane is derived from the Karigane, or stems and veins, of high quality Sencha plants. Harvested in first flush, this blend combines value with superb taste. With a gentle aroma and smooth finish, this tea can be brewed with hot water or steeped in room-temperature water for up to 6 hours for a refreshing, hot-weather drink. 

Sencha has more catechins than any other Japanese tea. Sencha also has twice as much vitamin C and nearly three times the amount of vitamin E of other Japanese teas. Karigane stems are rich in Theanine an Amino acid with a sweet and flavorful taste that works to relax the body and brain - improving mental performance and attention. Some people take Theanine by mouth for anxiety, stress, depression, schizophrenia, for preventing Alzheimer's disease, and for treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
