Kariganecha is another name of Kukicha used in Kyoto. Kuki means stem in Japanese and this tea is a blend of premium stems and a bit of ceremonial grade Matcha powder (first flush). The stem is rich in L-Theanine (amino acid), folic acid and calcium.
L-Theanine is a calming agent which creates alpha waves in the nervous system. These waves produce a so-called “relaxed alertness”. Caffeine in this tea is low but the combination of L-Theanine and a bit of caffeine gives slowly released energy and also helps boost memory and concentration. Thus it’s best to drink before meditation, yoga or study and work to improve productivity. It is said that L-theanine also helps improve the quality of sleep but if you are sensitive to caffeine it is better to avoid drinking it in the evening.
As for the taste, it has a light and sweet flavour and refreshing aroma.

J-okini is a distributor of Japanese organic green tea in Malta. I once took part in a giveaway organised by J-okini. Sumie, the founder of J-okini, informed me that I was one of the giveaway winners. She also mentioned that she is happy that I won as she loves my blog and that she is following my social media pages. Few weeks after I had a giveaway. Coincidentally, yes it was coincidentally as I use a random generator to pick out winner name, Sumie was the winner of that giveaway. We met so that I give her the prize and ended up talking long about social media, green teas, etc. Being new to green tea, I asked Sumie if she would like to write posts where she can give information about the different types of green tea and their benefits. The reason is that there are a lot of types. If I had to write a post, I would definitely mix up one type with the other. She agreed and here is the last of her post.
This is a sponsored post. You are not obligated to buy. However, if you decide to buy from J-okini, please leave a note in your order. Let Sumie know that you read her article on this website, she would love that.
