In stock: 37

Origin: Japan


Artisan Kama-iri cha is a rare Japanese green tea that is an older style than famous sencha- produced by traditional craft artisans. The process of making this style of green tea began in China, however, it is a specialty of Kyushu, Japan. It is a light, fresh flavored green tea and it has a unique, sweet scent.

What distinguishes it from all other types of Japanese greens is how the oxidation of the leaves is halted: all other Japanese green teas are steamed, Kama-Iri Cha is pan-fired on a large pan. It is a Japanese green tea whose oxidation is stopped in traditional Chinese methods!

Our Artisan Kama-Iri Cha has a deep olive-green color without any luster, with an aroma similar to Chinese green tea. Once steeped, its liquor is a brilliant golden yellow with a fresh, light flavor; it has a unique, very refreshing character, mild roasted flavors, and a heady sweet scent.

In opening the bag, there is a nice seaweed aroma. The leaves are broken down, kind of dusty, but still a nicely green color. The first infusion reveals a lot of seaweed to the nose, a solid grassy taste with astringency and a sweet aftertaste that linger around, just like candy! I noticed also a lot of residue in my cup once I drank all the tea. I would have preferred a bit more care in the condition of the leaves. Great tasting tea, but the fine dusty leaves make it so that I can’t rate this tea as excellent…
