Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find a good, organic Tamaryokucha?

https://www.chadoteahouse.com/guricha.asp here I found only non-organic version

Search kamairicha. Kamairicha is the pan fired version, which I am not sure is what you are looking for.

I known very well Kamairicha, but now i'm looking for mushi-sei tamaryoku-cha ( mushi-sei tamaryoku-cha (sometimes known as “guri-cha” or “mushi guri”) produced, like sencha, by steaming the leaves. It should not be confused with kama-iri-sei tamaryoku-cha (generally known as “kama-iri cha”)*

have you tried mellow monk?
i don't believe it is certified organic but you can speak with the owners to find out how the tea plants are grown.
good luck in your search.

Top Leaf looks good, but 35 $ for shipping to Europe it's a little too much for me. Anyway, thanks

It was hard to tell especially since you posted a page that had both steamed and pan fried versions.

Well, considering that you are seeking a somewhat specialised sencha, your choices may be limited. So you may have to swallow higher shipping costs (unless, of course, you can get some from a European supplier).

Best wishes,
