The Shibushi (志布志) region is located in the island of Kyushu, on the eastern side of Kagoshima Prefecture. The climate is mild and subtropical. Teas from the Shibushi region enjoy a high reputation in terms of quality. In this region, Sencha, deep steamed Sencha and Tamaryokucha are mostly produced, as well as some of the best organic Gyokuro.



This particular tea is coming from the north of the Shibushi region, Matsuyama Town, next to the Soo region. Karigane 雁金 or 雁が音 literaly meaning Wild Goose or Cry of the Wild Goose is a kukicha (twig tea) but coming from a Gyokuro production. 


This particular organic Karigane made from a blend of several cultivars is a delight and is very close to a Gyokuro experience. It is intense, with moderate sweetness, pleasant Umami and is easy to drink.
