Native Hand-picked Kamairicha – The Emperor’s Trophy

(1 customer review)

$19.00

This hand-picked tea is representative of its local culture because of the traditional manufacturing methods that have been employed. It is also indicative of the traditional tastes of the region since a local cultivar has been used for the cultivation of the leaf.

This premium grade tea is carefully produced in the Gokasé region of Miyazaki prefecture. The tea leaves employed are carefully harvest by hand, and then processed into a traditional kamairicha (pan-fired tea). The process of heating the tea leaves after harvest (and brief withering) on a large hot-plate or frying-pan is a practice more common in China and Taiwan, but it also constitutes the tradition of tea manufacturing on the Southern islands of Japan. A tea produced in such a fashion does not only appear more curly in the end-product, the brief withering and firing stages add immensely to the aroma of the tea.

This hand-picked tea is representative of its local culture because of the traditional manufacturing methods that have been employed. It is also indicative of the traditional tastes of the region since a local cultivar has been used for the cultivation of the leaf.

The manufacturer of this tea has been awarded a prize by the Imperial household in succession to a tasting and assessment of the product.

The current batch is from the Spring 2017 harvest of the native cultivar grown in this region.

    This tea has quite a different leaves than a regular sencha, remainding me more of a korean than japanese type of leave processing. I love the tea, with sweet nutty sweet flavor without the too grassiness I dislike in some greeen teas. I can only recommend.
