抹茶入り雁ヶ音 蘭 / Karigane Leaf Stems with Matcha - Ran

The Orchid, or ran in Japanese (pronounced "rahn") -- the language of flowers is an abiding love.

Adding a small amount of premium Matcha tea powder to Karigane creates a noble, complex flavor that spreads through your mouth, and will make you fall in love all over again with Japanese tea.

Karigane origins

The origins of the word Karigane, literally "the sound of geese", lies in story that regal migratory geese would rest on branches floating in the sea on their long journey. The leaf stems, resembling these branches, were given this regal name by Kyoto merchants in ages past.

Prized as a rare flower for centuries in China and Japan, the orchid is called the "queen of flowers". This regality is what we strove for in creating our Karigane Ran with its complex, regal flavor.
