KAMAIRICHA

WHAT IS KAMAIRICHA?

Kamairicha is a very rare green tea: it accounts for only 2% of all Japanese tea production and is a specialty of Kyushu.

Following a centuries-old tradition, this delicacy is made by pan-frying tea leaves in an iron vessel at 300-450°C. The result is a yellow-green, refreshing, smooth tea with a mildly roasted and rich flavor, with no astringency. Kama-iri cha is also known as the “Chinese green tea” in Japan, as the process used to make it was first developed in China.

The highest quality kamairicha comes from Miyazaki prefecture and only a few tea growers still possess the expertise required to produce this tea organically.
