Master Matsumoto’s Supernatural Green


A real handmade kamairicha, pan-fired like a Chinese tea so it is sweeter and less grassy than sencha teas which are steamed. This tea is made on a small 8 acre farm in Minamata-shi, Kumamoto Prefecture by Master Matsumoto, a 4th generation tea maker who is well known for continuing to use old tea trees (his trees are around 90 years old) and no pesticides, herbicides, fertilisers or even manure – hence the tea grows 'supernaturally'. Only 30kg are made each year.

Easy to make and easier to drink, its toasted, chocolatey aroma and sweet fruity taste has made this one of our most popular green teas and an excellent starter tea if you've never tried or liked green teas before.
