Kamairicha 50g pouch



This product is no longer in stock


Most Japanese green teas are steamed, this is a pan fried tea from Kyushu area of Japan. Pan fried teas have a longer history in Japan than steamed ones, though today they make up a tiny percentage of Japanese teas and are only found in the South of Japan. 

The leaf is vibrant green, lightly rolled with a little curl to the leaf. The aroma of the dry leaf is similar to Sencha. Brew as a Sencha, though this tea can be brewed slightly hotter at 80 degrees. 

The liquor is clean, with soft umami notes, a marine layer and a light toasted aftertaste, (like lightly toasted french bread). It is less astringent than Sencha and very enjoyable. Would be good cold or ice brewed.

One of the best green teas I've had in a long time

An interesting tea, somewhat like a combination of a Long Jing and a Tamaryokucha, with a nice umami body, and hints of pyrogenic flavors, this is one of the best green teas I've had in a long time. I hope NbT can continue sourcing this.
