From Yuuki-cha

Tsuyobi Shiage, meaning high flame/heat finishing, combines leaves from both the first spring harvest and the second summer harvest which are given a stronger than normal firing during the finishing stage.

The combination of the tender first flush leaves with their delicate sweetness, and the slightly coarser second flush leaves that contain good proportions of catechins gives this organic kamairicha an excellent balance of taste, while the stronger firing done on the leaves during the finishing stage really draws out some very delicious, savory, juicy, full flavors that totally enlighten the taste buds, makes for one highly aromatic green tea, and also makes it easier on the stomach, too!

At the low price we’re offering this organic kamairicha for it’s a really excellent green tea that you can enjoy daily, and one we would recommend without hesitation if it’s a tasty, aromatic, daily organic green tea you are looking for.

I bought this Kamairicha a few months ago. It’s the cheapest one on Yuuki-cha’s website and has good reviews so I thought I would try it out.

I’ve tried brewing this many ways but it still doesn’t appeal to me. I don’t find it a bad tea but it’s not too much like the other kamairicha’s either. This one is more savory. There’s a roasted taste to it. This tea was fired at a higher temperature than a normal kamairicha which explains why it’s so savory and roasty. For those that love roasted savory teas, that explains all the good reviews. There’s a little bit of similarity to Laoshan Green or wild jujube tea.

For me, however, I will woefully make it through this tea but wait in anticipation for the new 2019 kamairicha’s to come out.

Flavors: Roasted


I’m not a fan of roasty green teas either…reminds me of the dark ages when I used to drink “Temple of Heaven” gunpowder green tea. I’ll pass on this one. Waiting for Organic Miyazaki Kamairicha Minekaori to be back in stock so I can finally order my 2019 shincha.


Gunpowder green- that stuff is awful. So anyway, I couldn’t wait for the kamairicha’s to get posted. I was all out of sencha for a few months so I placed an order last week. I’ll just get another one in when the kamairicha’s come in.

The more I am drinking it, the more it reminds me more of houjicha than a sencha. There’s some of the smokiness.
