Karma Karma Kamairicha #3 (80g)
This kamairicha is produced from 60-year old tea bushes grown from seed (zairai) and then blended with okuyataka and yabukita cultivar tea leaves. Tastes of roasted corn and lemon.
The main zairai tea bushes are located on a steep slope of over 30 degrees! Don't trip!
Kamairicha (pan-fired tea) is a type of tea processing method that was brought from China in the 15th-16th century. Instead of steaming the leaf to stop oxidization, the tea is lightly heated in a pan to stop oxidization. It is then rolled while drying. Kamairicha is mostly made in the Kyushu region.
This tea is packed at the farm and comes in prepackaged 80g bags.
