Kyobancha is a Japanese roasted green tea with an enticing sweet aroma and a gentle taste.
Also known as iribancha and roasted bancha, Kyobancha is a Kyoto specialty sometimes simply referred to as bancha by locals. After being harvested from late winter to early spring, whole tea leaves and stems are steamed, dried without rolling, and roasted. This gives Kyobancha the appearance of fallen leaves, and makes its pleasant maple syrup scent and woody sweetness a delightful surprise.
Our Kyobancha is expertly crafted in small batches to achieve a perfectly even roast. The soft flavor and subtle smoky notes of Kyobancha will leave you wanting more, making this roasted tea a refreshing everyday drink.
Prepare Kyobancha by steeping 8 grams in 240 ml of 90°C (195°F) water for 2-3 minutes. Pour the light orange tea, breathe in the intoxicating aroma, and cherish each sip.
