About Kamairi

"Kamairi" in Japanese means "pan firing", or "roasting in a pan".

To make Kamairi green tea, fresh leaves are dried after harvesting at 300 °C

Making Kamairi is an intensely manual affair. Production is done on a small scale, and alwyas by a skilled operator.

As a result, Kamairi teas are rare even in Japan (and more so in the west) and account for about 2% of all Japanese tea production.

To make Kamairi, fresh tea leaves are parched in a pan immediately after harvesting for about 10 minutes at 300 degrees C. During the process (called iriha-ki), the operator keeps turing the leaves manually, observing the color and texture. Next, the leaves are rolled and dried in a four-step process.

This time-tested Japanese technique yields a unique pan-parched aroma, with a remarkably complex and rich taste.
