What is a kamairicha? Kamairicha is green tea which is made by heating the leaves in a pan instead of the typical steaming process that senchas go through. It is the common method of producing Chinese green tea, but is quite rare today in Japan. Rather than producing the typical round pellet shape associated with gunpowder tea, the Japanese method gives the shape of a comma (i.e., the punctuation mark). In general, kamairicha is a traditional folk tea from Southern Japan and Miyazaki prefecture is known as the best prefecture for this type of tea! Kamairichas can be a nice change from the senchas one may be used to with the pleasant scent of roasted chestnuts.
