Organic Kamairicha

Kamairicha (not to be confused with the steamed version of Tamaryokucha aka Guricha) is a rare, centuries-old, traditionally pan-fired Japanese green tea that is predominantly cultivated by artisan growers on small-scale family farms in remote areas of Kyushu Island and held in high esteem by knowledgeable tea connoisseurs. The selection presented here are totally genuine kamairicha, and come from artisan growers in the famed Kamairicha producing towns known as Gokase and Hinokage, both of which are in the Nishiusuki district of Miyazaki, a well-known district for producing the highest of quality Kamairicha. The families we have formed relationships with there are long established Kamairicha growers that have maintained what was handed down to them including the lush generation-old organic fertile soils, cultivation methods, cultivars, and various pan firing methods. Only a few artisan growers in Japan still possess the expertise to continue to produce this specialized tea organically like their forefathers did, so it's a real pleasure to work directly with them and be able to offer some of their most prized and rare organic Kamairicha that are seldom available on the market.
