What are your favorite kariganes, either sencha or gyokuro? I generally prefer the ones with a higher leaf to stem ratio. Thanks

I've only tried one so I don't have any basis for comparison, but last year's shincha karigane from Maiko was delicious.

Karigane is kukicha from shaded tea only. Also shiraore is often used to name kukicha, though shiraore is used only for teas from Kyushu (not 100% sure) i.e. Kagoshima, Yame, Saga. Might help searching.
