About Kamairi

"Kamairi" in Japanese means "roasting in a pan".

This time-tested Japanese technique enhances tea's savory (umami) content, yielding a complex flavor and rich taste.

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

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

Making Kamairi is an intensely manual affair. Production is done on a small scale, and always by a skilled operator. As a result, Kamairi teas are rare even in Japan and account for about 2% of all Japanese tea production.
