This is Kamairi, pan-fried (pan-fired) Sencha that is rare as typical Japanese tea uses a steaming process. The pan-frying process makes the tea very aromatic and palate-cleansing. Yellowy liquor Kamairi Sencha is good to drink alone or as a nice accompaniment to meals.
Another unique feature of this particular pan-fried tea is that this tea is organically grown. No pesticides or chemical fertilizer are used for this tea. Tea leaves are grown on a organic farm on the mountain side of TenRyu region in Shizuoka.
Almost all of our organic teas are certified but this boutique product has a small production run and the producer has not applied for organic certification at this time.
