The Ureshino region in Southern Japan is very well known for their kamairicha. What is a kamairicha? It is a “pan-fired tea” green tea made by heating the leaves in a pan instead of steaming. This is generally the same method used to make many Chinese-style green teas and has been practiced for generations in Southern Japan.
It has a unique shape that is rare for Japanese tea with a rounded, stiff and moderately curved shape.
The tea leaves of this kamairicha from Ureshino have a bright and glossy color.
It has a refreshing taste with less bitterness, which are characteristics of kamairicha in general. This tea is recommended for those who do not do too well with the astringency of Japanese teas.

As the city expanded, the area known as Akasaka-Mitsuke became one of the city's elite districts with ryotei, luxury Japanese restaurants, hosting meetings between powerful politicians. At these ryotei, only the best tea leaves from Shizuoka and other parts of Japan are served.
