KAMAIRICHA ICHOUKA

PAN-FRIED TEA
GREEN TEA

Shizuoka, Tuba, Honshu, Japan

Classic and at the same time rare Japanese green tea. In contrast to most green tea in Japan, which is steamed, this tea is pan-fried using old tradition. Made from a special blend of Yabukita, Surugawase and Zairai cultivars, this tea is quite unique. Fresh and sweet taste with grassy and baked notes will not leave anyone disappointed.

Award-winning tea of Japan’s National Tea Tasting competition!

PAN-FRIED GREEN TEA

ORIGIN
Classic green tea made using the classic Chinese pan-frying method brought here in the 15th century. While most Japanese green tea undergoes a steaming process to stop oxidation of a tea leaf, this tea is pan-fried and rolled to create a beautiful twisted shape. The full name of this tea is Kamairi Tamarokucha, which speaks about the production process and the method of twisting tea leaves. This is a great representative of so-called classic green tea with mild, smooth, sweet flavour.

Ichouca means "withered tea" and refers to a nuance in processing the tea. While most of the Kamairicha is being pan-fried right after harvesting, this special Kamairicha was withered for some time before being processed. During this step the leaves undergo a very slight amount enzymatic oxidization what adds floral notes and reflects in a light, refreshing taste with much less astringency.

ORGANOLEPTIC
Dry tea leaves have sweet, creamy notes which bring associations with fresh pastry. Warmed tea leaves become more intense and have nutty, creamy notes. The full-bodied taste is tender and silky, with sweet grassy, herbal notes in the aftertaste. Delicate sweet tea with calming and refreshing effect.

Japanese prefer to brew these kinds of tea quite strong and powerful, enjoying a deep complex taste. I prefer to brew them lighter to enjoy a sweet and tasty drink. I recommend you try using 70 °C water and infuse the tea for about 30-45 seconds each time. You will get a more gentle and sweet drink with enough multifaceted taste to enjoy.

GASTRONOMY
This tea goes perfectly with Japanese cuisine. Like Gyokuro, this Kamairicha is very nice in cold-brewing and a good alternative to wine during dinner. Can be used as an additive to sauces, salads etc.
