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.

Experience This Rare Green Tea Luxury

Now seasoned tea lovers and newcomers alike can experience the complex richness of a cup of Kamairicha green tea. Buddha Teas offers this exquisite tea in a loose-leaf form to provide the best possible flavor and enjoyment. Add this tea to your collection and save when you buy in bulk.

Review Title: lovely tea

Review by Eennelon March 27, 2021
Great quality and good earthy green tea taste. It is high in caffeine so I need to enjoy it in the mornings and curb the use in the afternoon.

Review Title: Delicious but confused

Review by Angelaon August 6, 2020
I did a lot of research in hopes of finding the most delicious and nutritious green tea. I recently switched from coffee to green tea and found this to be a perfect replacement. However, I am confused because the steeping instructions on the website completely contradict the steeping directions on the bag. Other than this confusion, the tea is amazing and I will definitely continue buying it as soon as I figure out the correct serving.

Review Title: A feast for the taste buds!

Review by Deborahon July 25, 2019
As stated previously, I'm not a fan of green tea - tastes just like slightly green water to me. Even though I know the SUPER benefits contained within green tea, just couldn't make myself drink it. So, when researching your teas, the fact that the green tea leaves are 'pan-fried' - well, this caught my interest. And to my PLEASANT surprise, this green tea has SUBSTANCE! Will be drinking a LOT of this!

Review Title: Kamairicha Loose Leaf Tea

Review by Trudyon June 27, 2019
I had never heard of this tea before. It is now my favorite tea! It is a very "soothing" cup of tea. I would consider it the "Darjeeling" of green teas!
