Unlike steamed sencha, kamairicha is a type of tea that is pan-fired using an iron pan instead of being steamed. It is said to have been introduced to Japan from China around the 15th century and is only produced in certain regions of Kyushu. Currently, kamairicha represents a mere 0.3% of the overall Japanese tea production, making it a rare and precious tea.
One distinctive feature of kamairicha is its aroma called "kama-ka," which is the fragrance obtained from the tea leaves when they are heated in the iron pan. The delightful and toasty scent from the pan-firing process lingers on the tea leaves, lending kamairicha its unique character.


We store our inventory in two locations: Japan and the United States. This is because we currently have a large customer base in America. In the future, we plan to expand our distribution centers to other countries. For details on shipping methods and delivery charges, please click here.

We strive to deliver our products to our customers as quickly and affordably as possible by stocking them in both Japan and the United States wherever feasible. However, for tea leaves that are sensitive to temperature and humidity, we ensure shipping from our temperature-controlled warehouses in Japan to maintain their quality.

Most of the teas we sell now are 15-30g. The reason is that we want you to enjoy exploring a variety of teas. We offer a multi-purchase discount on all teas, 10% for 3units and 20% for 5units at checkout.
