TAMARYOKUCHA

WHAT IS TAMARYOKUCHA ?

Tamaryokucha (“coiled tea”) is another specialty of Kyushu. It is a high grade green tea, very close to sencha, and is also commonly known as guricha (“curly tea”).

It has a tangy, berry-like taste, with a long almondy aftertaste and a deep aroma with tones of citrus, grass, and berries. Higashi sonogi is a region specialized in this tea, which is produced by steaming the youngest leaves after the harvest.

The leaves are then rolled into “comma” shapes (instead of being kneaded into “needle” shapes, like for sencha). The tea is golden yellow and can be reinfused, with a slightly different taste.

then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know."
