KAMAIRICHA ICHOKA 2021 | Zairai

$20.00

  • An unusually buttery, green yet nutty expression of Shizuoka’s soil.
    Icho (萎凋):  withered, as in 'withering tea leaves
    Ka (香):  incense or aroma

    This tea is particularly interesting because it provides a glimpse of what many Japanese people would have enjoyed in the 19th and early 20th centuries.  ‘Icho’ means withering (allowing the leaves to gently oxidize before firing them.  Osada San allowed these tea leaves to wither for a few hours, just like producers would have done in old times, when transportation from the tea fields to the processing facilities took much longer than today.  The result is a particularly silky brew, somewhat reminiscent of very lightly oxidized oolongs.
