KAMAIRI-CHA means iron pot roasted tea, a method originating in China and now used in Kyushu, the southwest of mainland Honshu. This tea is mainly consumed in Kyushu and is considered to be a rare and exceptional item in Japan, where the majority of tea is processed by steaming. (Available in limited quantity.)
We offer this unique Japanese tea featuring a golden hued water color, deep aroma, and a refreshing flavor with a hint of roastiness, from tea master Mr. Korogi of Gokase in Miyazaki prefecture.
Mr. Korogi makes Kamairicha with an outstanding reputation, as his traditional method produces an exquisite aroma in the tea. He has received countless honorable awards, including from the Japanese Government, for his Kamairicha.
