Description

First flush (shincha 2023)

From Miyazaki, this organic kamairicha made from tamaryokucha is rare. Refreshing, there is almost no bitterness to taste. Its low-key umami and low caffein levels make it possible to enjoy this tea all day long.

YOSHI is a stunning, gold-hued tea made by Sekiya san in Miyazaki. This pan-fried tea has a full mouthfeel with a lingering sweetness and a subtle bitterness. Notes of edamame, cooked spinach, and toasted almond are accented by subtle notes of toasted white sesame seed and persimmon. The tea will develop more complexity and sweetness over many steeps.

Its processing method -that only a handful of experts still master- has for result that this tea will remind you of oolong tea, even though it still possesses all the health benefits of green tea. This is especially true for its antioxidant and amino acids levels. Easily and quickly brewed (60 seconds, 80°C).

I really love this tea and drink at least three cups a day. It has a fresh, clean flavor with no bitterness.

Miyazaki as a tea producing location is Japan's best kept secret. The teas from there are wonderful. Especially this Kamari-cha 'Yoshi'.
