Organic Kamairi Tamaryokucha


Score: 5.00. Votes: 2

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

    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.
