With TOMOKO, Miyazaki san has created a unique oolong-style kamairicha. The tea leaves are lightly withered. They are pan-fired after extracting the aroma from the tea leaves themselves, creating a fragrant tea with the scent of flower incense.
This organic tea is refreshing and lively, with with notes of gardenia, buttered spinach, and dried chestnut. If you are looking for a sweet and light-bodied cup, with jasmine hints, this is the tea for you. This tea will make you smile cheerfully like Miyazaki-san!
The perfect choice for those who don't like very much the grassy and sea-weed taste of more traditional green teas.

We have been doing organic cultivation for tea with pesticide-free and chemical fertilizer-free for over 30 years and received certification of organic JAS in 2001.We produce KAMAIRICHA a true specialty in our region, Miyazaki. Since this technique is difficult to master there are less and less producers that are producing Kamaricha. The tea is not steamed, but roasted in a large pan. Its fragrance is called “kamaka”, a sweet taste and refreshing feeling and can sometimes recall the scent of Jasmine tea. MIYAZAKI SABO has won many national awards for their kamairicha, including the Nihoncha Awards in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2021.
