While virtually unknown outside of Japan (and not well known in Japan either), tamaryokucha or 玉緑茶 is a major tea category drunk primarily in the southern Japanese island of Kyushu (Kagoshima, Fukuoka, etc). It can be pan-fired or steamed (if steamed it is called guricha), but the key characteristic is the skipping of the last rolling process so that the leaves are curled instead of straight.
