Kumamoto Native Kamairicha - Tales From the Past

The Tea Crane

  • $1500

 Kamairicha is a tea that is produced not by steaming the fresh leaves, but by heating them directly in a large frying pan. This tea is characterised by a clear and vivid yellow-green liquor and a fresh aftertaste with a sweet aroma. Today, this tradition is only practiced and continued in a small part of Kyushu.

 At this farm, the producer cares strongly about the environment and their consumer's health. Therefore, within the premises of these farms and gardens no chemicals such as pesticides are allowed.

 The name of this tea is "Denshō" and refers to the tradition and folklore that is expressed through the age of the native tea bush used to create this tea. The garden was planted 60 years ago at the foundation of this farm, using solely native seeds as a means of reproduction.
