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.

I ordered green tea at a sushi restaurant near me and was surprised to receive it in a mug. It was very good, with less caffeine than my usual organic Sencha that I love. After they told me I was drinking Konacha tea I tried to find a a good source for it in the U.S. but no luck. I came upon WAWAZA. This tea is absolutely worth ordering direct from Japan. I love this tea. A medium bodied,, flavorful green tea that I drink everyday.
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.
