This green tea fills your mouth with a sweet, creamy, and toasty flavor. Winner of the Platinum Kamairicha Nihoncha Award in 2021. Harvested June 2022, certified USDA organic, and double sifted for excellent leaf quality.
Wild Kamairicha is grown at an elevation of 500 meters above sea level in the Haruno mountains of Northern Hamamatsu City. The organic fields in these mountains bud late, making this the first flush of the tea. The cultivar is Zairai, meaning that the leaves are harvested from wild tea bushes native to the hills of the mountain. The word "Kama" means kettle, "Iru" means to roast, and "Cha" means tea. The name comes to mean roasted in a kettle tea, and creates the unique shape that comes from the preparation of the tea. Order it and experience the rich terroir and incredible craftsmanship of Wild Kamairicha green tea.
