What is Mushisei Tamaryokucha?
Tamaryokucha was originally made for export around 1930 to introduce the taste of Japanese tea to the world, and it later became common in Japan as well. The curvy shape of the tea resembles that of Chinese tea, which was widely distributed around the world at the time, and it was made this way to make the Japanese tea more acceptable. This Tamaryokucha is steamed carefully, and has an impressive, powerful, and concentrated flavor. It is now quite rare to find it in Japan due to the labor-intensive method of manufacturing.
What makes our Tamaryokucha special
Our Steamed Tamaryokucha is produced in Higashisonogi, Nagasaki Prefecture, a tea-producing region known for its climate suitable for tea cultivation. The tea produced in a beautiful tea farm with a view of Omura Bay has a strong umami flavor and an astringent but clean and refreshing taste.
