STORY BEHIND THE TEA

This competition grade Tamaryokucha has both wonderful grassy, fresh notes as well as a slight astringency, which comes from the Tsuyuhikari cultivar. The aftertaste is fairly long and shows hints of almonds and dried berries and is an overall great choice to dive into premium Japanese green teas.

Tamaryokucha directly translates into green gem tea, referencing 勾玉/magatama, comma shaped jewels that were highly revered in ancient China, Korea and Japan. The naming probably came to be because the leaves are a bit “curly” and jade green. They appear more like the leaves of Chinese green tea and are also pretty similar in processing. In fact, in most cases you could use the terms Tamaryokucha and Kamairicha interchangeably, because they are both traditionally pan roasted. In recent times most Tamaryokucha are steamed like Sencha though, making them more distinct.
