About Kamairi

"Kamairi" in Japanese literally means "pan firing", or "roasting in a pan". The process is an intensely manual, and as a result production is only done on a small scale.

The characteristic aroma of tea is strongly preserved in the final product, due to the traditional techniques developed over centuries. 

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

Due to its labor-intensive process, Kamairi teas are rare even in Japan and more so in the west (they account for only about 2% of all Japanese tea production.)

Fresh tea leaves are immediately dried after harvesting for ten minutes at 300 °C. Next, the leaves are rolled and dried in a four step, intensely manual process.
