Kamairicha

Kamairicha has dark seaweed-green leaves with a toasty scent. The liquor is golden yellow and produces a crisp aroma that is reminiscent of roasted chestnut and toast. It has a light mouthfeel, a nutty flavour, and a hint of smokiness.  

What is Kamairicha? 
Kamairicha (釜炒り茶) is a type of green tea that is pan-fried instead of steamed and is a regional specialty of Ureshino in Saga Prefecture.

The leaves are fried in an iron vessel that is slanted at a 45-degree angle. Their unique preparation method gives this tea its toasty flavours and aromas.

Compared to steamed green tea, pan-fried tea is very rare in Japan, accounting for only 0.3% of all teas produced in Japan. Even within Saga Prefecture itself, Kamairicha represents only 2% of all green tea production.
