Contests: LEAF ( 30g / 1.06oz ) / TEABAG ( 2g x 10 pcs )
"Kamairi-cha" accounts for only 0.02% of Japanese tea production in 2019, making it a very rare tea in Japan. Most Japanese tea (sencha, gyokuro, etc.) is mainly steamed tea, which heats and stops fermentation by steaming. On the other hand, "Kamairi-cha" does not undergo the usual steam treatments of Japanese tea and does not have the characteristic astringent taste of most Japanese tea. After a short withering, they are fired in hot iron pans of up to 420 °C with repeated agitation to prevent charring. "Kamairi-cha" has a mildly roasted flavour with more sweet and fresh notes than bitter ones. "Kamairi-cha" has a characteristically light, refreshing taste that lacks astringency. The indescribable fragrance will spread to the back of your mouth and throat, and will be filled with a refreshing flavor and lingering finish.
Our tea factory does not make any tea other than our tea farms. In the case of large-scale production, all the tea leaves are blended at the tea-making stage, but because we are small-scale production, it is possible to make tea in each our tea farm. We make varieties that suit the land by the production method that suits the land, so the individuality naturally comes out. Our tea farms are between 200 and 550 meters above sea level, and each tea farm is located in more than 10 different locations. In addition, we cultivate more than 20 types of tea varieties according to the conditions of each tea farm. We analyze the aptitude of the land and grow tea. We never blend tea grown outside of our tea farm. This is to prevent the mixture of tea leaves other than the tea we cultivated with pride.
Our tea making began in 1922 with our high-grandfather. For almost 100 years, our family has been making tea in the same land. We understand each tea plantation more than anyone else and have cultivated tea varieties suitable for the area. Our tea farms are located in more than 10 locations and we own more than 20 types of tea in total. Umami kamairi-cha "Maromi" is a blend of tea grown in our tea farms in our sense.

We constantly study the needs and opinions of consumers and start with the soil preparation of the tea farm. It builds a relationship of trust with the customer and is our belief in tea making.
