Kamairicha Loose Leaf Health Benefits
The world of green teas is known for its delicious variety, each kind unique in its preparation and taste. Yet of all its offerings, few green teas are rarer or more intriguing than Kamairicha. Grown in one of the most prominent tea-growing regions of Japan, the leaves of this green tea are pan-fried, rather than steamed like most other Japanese teas. With an inviting aroma and a savory roasted taste, Kamairicha green tea is captivating and enriching, a satisfying experience for tea drinkers of all types.
The Kamairicha Process
The name Kamairicha identifies how the tea is made, a combination of “kamairi” (pan-fried) and “cha” (tea). The techniques used to make this tea have been practiced and perfected over centuries, passed down within tea-making families to preserve the tradition. The fresh tea leaves are immediately fried in a hot pan at 300°C (572°F) to halt oxidization, continuously tossed in a process called iriha-ki. This process is very different from the typical steamed method used on other Japanese green teas, giving it a delicious roasted aroma and a complex taste with a toasted finish. Tea prepared in this method is extremely rare even in Japan, accounting for roughly 2% of all Japanese tea, making every cup a precious luxury.
