Spicy Karagi Tea with An Okinawa Rail Mark

post : 2014.11.22 16:00

At the road station Yuiyui Kunigami in Okuma, Kunigami, Okinawa there is a Yanbaru antenna shop that is lively with tourist and is full of regional and special souvenirs.  

Among the souvenirs Karagi Tea with a cute picture of Okinawa rails will draw you attention. It is the top selling product at Yuiyui Kunigami.

Karagi is the word for the Okinawa cinnamomum tree which is in the laurel family. It has the refreshing taste of cinnamon. If you have it after eating, it will calm your stomach and warm your body from the core.
You can drink it as it but if you add milk and brown cane sugar it taste like chai and becomes more delicious.

At the front of the shop there are two types of tea bags, and you can mix and match as you please.
I recommend having it after eating Yuiyui Kunigami’s famous inobuta (boar-pig hybrid) dishes (like inobuta soba, inobuta bowl).
