Kamairicha(釜炒り茶) is a Japanese green tea that is pan-fired, not steamed like most Japanese green teas. Both the production process and the aroma and flavor of this tea make it resemble Chinese green teas, most of which are pan-fired in a similar way.

Not well-known in western countries, it is still available through some specialty importers, mainly Japanese companies. It is produced in some of the southern regions of Japan, including locations in Nagasaki, Saga, and Miyazaki prefectures.
