Most Japanese green teas are steamed to prevent oxidation so they retail their fresh green color and flavor. While Guricha is indeed steamed, there is also a pan-firing step which adds a rich, buttery quality. This is an excellent tea with a unique flavor (almost like buttered asparagus) and a emerald cup color.
