Japanese Tamaryokucha Organic Loose Leaf Healthy Green Speciality Tea


£5.00




  • Cultivated in the Miyazaki Prefecture on the Kyushu Island, this Japanese green tea is subtly different to other Japanese Sencha type teas.
  • Its other name is Guricha meaning curly-tea, in reference to the shape of the dried leaves.
  • This tea is produced in limited quantities and is hard to find outside of Japan, harder still is an organically produced one.
  • Whereas typical Sencha leaves are rolled into needle shapes these leaves are rolled into ‘comma’ shapes.
  • The caffeine level is typically low as with all Japanese green teas, and the preparation is similar to Japanese Sencha type teas, hot not boiling water, around 70 degree C and only infuse for a couple of minutes.
  • You could try infusing at 80 degree C but only infuse for one minute.
  • This lovely tea is milder and less astringent than typical Sencha and could be drunk throughout the day, re-infusing a few times.
  • The taste is lovely and I can see myself drinking a lot of this rare brew.
  • You will receive 35 grams of this tea for £5.00. Using two grams you will make between 18 and 54 cups of tea. This works out at between 27p and 9p per cup. 
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
