Kamairi in Japanese means roasting in a pan. Fresh tea leaves are dried in heated iron pans immediately after harvest with repeated agitation for about 10 minutes.
The tea maker keeps turning the leaves manually, observing the color and texture. Next, the leaves are rolled and dried in a four-step process. The process is called iriha-ki.
This time-tested Japanese technique enhances tea's savory (umami) content, yielding a complex flavor and rich taste.
Grown, harvested and processed by traditional farmers in lush-green highlands of Kyushu island, southern Japan.
