Crafted from the Karigane (stems and veins) of Gyokuro Superior tea leaves, our Gyokuro Karigane Superior is a rare tea. These stems only account for about 5% to 10% of all tea leaves, so only a limited amount of Gyokuro Karigane can be produced each year. Even in Kyoto, the center of Japanese green tea culture and production, it is difficult to find top grade Gyokuro Karigane.
Gyokuro itself has the most Niacin (vitamin B3) of any Japanese tea. This compound is known for lowering LDL cholesterol, and increasing HDL cholesterol, helping fortify the body against heart disease and diabetes. Niacin also reduces symptoms of arthritis and promotes healthy skin.
