Typical tea served at sushi restaurants, because it is so quick and easy to prepare.
This economical, every-day tea goes well with almost any meal — also, an excellent choice for parties and gatherings. Your friends will think you are a pro.
Made from highly flavorful pan-roasted Kamairi variety tea leaves.
To make Kamairi, fresh tea leaves are parched at high heat for ten minutes, after which they are rolled and dried in a four-step process. The result is a smooth tea with a sophisticated, rich flavor.
Producing Kamari is labor-intensive and requires skill. Kamairi teas are rare even in Japan as they account for about 2% of all Japanese tea production.
Grown, harvested and processed by traditional farmers in lush-green highlands of Kyushu island, southern Japan.

This wonderful tea has been my first experience with loose leaf high quality green tea. I absolutely love it! No bitterness at all and a wonderfully savory tast that is so relaxing to sip.
