A first rate, first harvest, pan fried organic green tea. Grown in Takachio, Miyazaki Prefecture Japan.  Organic Kamairi Tamaryokucha is not steamed, but pan fried, the pan firing gives this tea a sweeter, less astringent taste with a touch of roast flavor. The curled, comma leaf shape is also somewhat uniquie and when brewed it has a beautiful clear yellow-green color to it. Harvested from the first round of young spring leaves, it is grown and certified organic. Nitrogen flushed and vacuum packaged, as fresh of an organic green tea as you can get.

Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

    This pan-fried Kamairicha have a unique full flavor, very sweet and velvety. You'll enjoy elements of both Chinese and Japanese tea. I have been drinking different Kamairichas, but this one is my favourite.

    The other reviewers hit it right, I think. It's like Chinese green with its smoky/earthy touchpoints (probably not the right words but think of what's in common with most of the Chinese pan-fried greens you've tried). But it's the cleanest most refined one you've had. So enjoyable. Why not 5 stars? Well, I don't know, but isn't that reserved for one-in-a-zillion teas of unsurpassed beauty? Hey, this might even BE that, but I wouldn't know. My taste isn't that refined. In tea that is. Talk to me about music, though....

    I'm very glad I got to try this tea. Definitely an interesting middleground between Chinese and Japanese greens. Good aroma, umami and even salt. More forgiving of heat than your typical sencha. Excellent tea. My favorite so far!

    Lovely tea. Some citrus, vegetalness, smoothness.

    If you haven't yet tried a kamairicha, this would be a good one to try. The price is right, and the quality is there.

    You'll enjoy elements of both Chinese  and Japanese tea, in unison. 

    However, at least to me, kamairicha has a distinctly Japanese stamp on it.

    I like to brew this tea in a gaiwan. Unlike sencha, you can easily brew this tea in one. 

    Great stuff.
