Kamairicha Organic

From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This type of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness. The liquor has a pleasant nutty aroma and a flavor similar to chestnuts with a slightly sweet and citrusy after taste. Great combination of smoothness and intensity.
