Kamairicha is made by heating the leaves in a pan, unlike most Japanese green tea made by steaming.
Tea used for this specific kamairicha is grown in the town of Ashikita, Kumamoto Prefecture, a rare tea producing region. Sourcing from the first tea field located in this area, the tea is grown with no pesticide.
Bancha Specialty Shop Furyu was established in 2010 by aspiring tea master Nobuhiko Ikematsu, who works directly with farmers in Kurume City, Fukuoka, to develop delicious bancha teas. He is also a specialist gathering rare bancha teas from around Japan.
