Authentic Japanese Countryside Matcha

Tea farm in Takachiho highlands of central Kyushu Island

Experience the tranquil essence of old-world Japanese countryside with our aromatic, highly flavorful, jade-green Kamairi matcha, stone ground to perfection.

Sourced from the serene, lush-green highlands of central Kyushu Island, this JAS-certified organic matcha is crafted from pan-roasted Kamairi tea leaves, known for their rich, robust flavor.

Versatile and Unique

With its delicate aroma and high umami content, this Kamairi matcha, unlike specialized high-foaming ceremonial matchas, boasts remarkable versatility.

It's perfect for traditional matcha, delightful in lattes, and ideal for culinary uses and making garnishing.

See below for a few how-to examples.

About Kamairi Variety

Producing Kamari is labor-intensive and requires skill. Kamairi teas are rare even in Japan, accounting for about 2% of all Japanese tea production.

To make Kamairi, fresh tea leaves are skilfully dried at high heat for a few minutes, then rolled and dried in a four-step process. The result is a smooth tea with a sophisticated, rich flavor.

Rare and Exquisite

A hidden gem, not commonly found in stores, for those seeking an authentic, aromatic, and versatile matcha experience.

Grown, harvested and processed by traditional farmers in lush-green highlands of Kyushu island, southern Japan.

    Great taste but a bit pricey

    Posted by Jordan on 19th Mar 2023

    So I’ve been on this matcha train for a while now and I gotta say, this one’s a winner in terms of taste and texture. If they could bring the price down a bit, it’d be 5 stars from me, no doubt.

    OMG, this matcha is everything! I’ve tried a bunch but nothing comes close to this one. The color, the texture, it’s all just perfect. It tastes amazing and it’s organic too, which is a total win-win. I’m hooked and I can’t start my day without it. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re missing out big time!

    I LOVE TEA... I LOVE TEA...Tea is healing, tea can wake you up, calm you down and heal you. This is the brightest green, most beautiful creamy Matcha I have ever tried. Just buy some and compare it to any other you have purchased and see the difference! To fully enjoy its flavor, I recommend you learn how the Matcha needs to be prepared. It is worth doing a little research on how to make a cup of Matcha tea properly. Youtube it! You can make it hot or cold! Learn how to make it the beautiful traditional Japanese way with a sifter and a bamboo whisk, and Matcha bowl, and I guarantee you will feel just the process of making this special tea will be something you look forward to. It is a beautiful way to serenely start your busy day or a calm way to end your day. WAWAZA THANK YOU for my favorite tea!
