Fuji-kaori Kama-iri Cha is an unblended, pan-fired green tea from Japan made entirely of Fuji-kaori cultivar leaves. The tea is smooth, a little bit sweet, and silky with hints of lemon and jasmine flower. Unlike many Japanese green teas, Fuji-kaori kama-iri cha is not heavy with brothy umami notes, but is rather light and refreshing, gliding down the palate easily.
Kamairi-cha denotes the type of tea this is and Fuji-kaori denotes the cultivar used. Kamairi-cha make up less than 3% off all the Japanese green teas produced, but have actually been around since the 16th century.
Fuji-kaori Kamairi-cha is from Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. 2018 harvest.
