- About Kamairicha
- Shelf Life
Kamairicha (Pan-fired green tea) is a classic tea but the aroma brings a fresh sensation.
Unlike ordinary Japanese green teas, Kamairicha doesn't undergo usual steaming process.
Instead, it is made by pan-firing and rolling the leaves.
In fact, this is the oldest method of manufacturing tea.
The aroma called Kamaka, which means "aroma of the pan", is unique, so you might be hooked on it.
Japanese tea is easily influenced by oxygen, humidity, odors, heat and light.
When preserving, put it in an airtight container and keep it in a cool, dry space.
Once the package is opened, we recommend that the tea be consumed preferably within 3 weeks.
