The deep golden liquor of this untraditional Japanese tea has a silky mouthfeel and a lingering finish. The lightly roasted aroma is sweet and reminiscent of baked muffins. The flavor is deeply nutty with a hint of cocoa. The flavor benefits from careful brewing.
Unlike most Japanese green teas, Kamairicha, after a brief withering process, is pan-fried in the Chinese method instead of steamed. This produces a gently roasted tea that is sweet and is characteristically light and refreshing.
Tea is highly personal and these instructions are only a starting point. Play with the parameters to find the perfect flavor for you.❦
