What is Tamaryokucha?

Tamaryokucha is a type of Japanese green tea that has a curly appearance. Also known as “guricha,” this name originates from the tea’s likeness to a traditional Japanese motif – guri – which is a curly pattern that is used in Japanese art and architecture. Tamaryokucha is mainly produced on the island of Kyushu, as well as in Shizuoka Prefecture. It is processed in almost exactly the same way as sencha, but with one notable difference: instead of being rolled into the thin, needle-like shape of sencha, it is rolled into a distinctive comma-like shape. Tamaryokucha has a green-colored liquor and a refreshing, berry-like taste. This is an uncommon type of Japanese tea, and perfect for those who want to try the unique flavor of an unusual tea.
