Description
From Miyazaki, this organic kamairi-cha made from tamaryoku-cha is very 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 Kamairicha 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. It is easily and quickly brewed (60 seconds, 80°C).

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

  2. iriska2903 (verified owner)

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

  3. jmacyang (verified owner)

    I like the first brewed, like Chinese Oolong taste, but unique style , and can try 2-3 brews if you do 30-45s

Tasting Guide

sweetness

A sweet-tasting tea is a very light tea that leaves a sensation of natural sweetness in the mouth.

UMami

Although there is no official translation of the word “umami”, some call it “savory taste”: it leaves a mild and lasting pleasant brothy after taste and is recognized as one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness). It also induces salivation and a furriness sensation on the tongue, stimulating the throat, the roof and the back of the mouth.

BITTERNESS

The natural bitterness of green tea comes from the way it is made. Unlike black and oolong teas, green teas are made from the unfermented leaves of the tea plant, which keeps the antioxidants intact, but also gives them the bitter taste. This bitterness can be regulated with the water temperature : the higher the more bitter and vice-versa.

CAFFEINE

Caffeine is a naturally-occurring stimulant, found in several plants. Caffeine is water soluble, and is extracted into the brewed cup when preparing tea. In most cases, tea has much less caffeine than coffee.

CATECHINS

Catechins are a type of polyphenol (EGCG) and are the main astringency component in green tea, long known as tannins. In order to release more catechins you will need higher brewing temperature at around 80 but this will also increase the astringency and bitterness of your tea because of the caffeine. Dont use such temperatures for Gyokuro.

THEANINE

L-theanine (here referred to as theanine) is an amino acid that has a relaxing, but not sedating, effect. It is renowned for its ability to put you in the ideal state of calm attentiveness. It can sharpen focus, while reducing stress and enhancing overall well-being. Theanine can interact with caffeine, allowing a smaller dose of caffeine to have a stronger effect in terms of boosting concentration and alertness.
