Yoichi Koorogi is a champion of kamairi making whose technique is on the verge of disappearing into the historic archive.  But his Kamairi is assertive yet with strong sense of history and tradition.  On my most resent visit to his tea farm, he took out his most recent stash, the product of his playful experiment.  It is a revival of good old Kamairi, you just grab a handful of tea leaves, throw them into the pot, pour hot hot boiling water, to get all the good and bad of the mountain out in the second, and have a gulp and go "wow", "woo", "haa", with your friend.  This is not your daily tea, but, get a bit to spice up your tea cabinet!
