ROASTED GREEN TEA: Kyobancha, Japan
Roasted green tea, Japan
Burnt toffee, wood, roasted nut ~ light and sweet
These beautiful, large, glossy leaves have been left on the tea plant to mature over the winter, before being harvested then steamed, rolled, dried and roasted - creating a tea that is light and sweet and almost completely caffeine free. Smell the wet leaves after you have poured your tea and you’ll notice a subtle liquorice fragrance. The steeped tea is ultra-light with notes of sweet burnt toffee, wood and roasted nuts. This soothing tea is perfect for a cold day or a as a night-time tea. March 2021 harvest.
Kyobancha comes from Obubu Tea Farm, Kyoto Japan - an agricultural social venture with a strong focus on high quality tea, community contribution and tea education.
Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 90°. Three infusions.
Sizes: Kyobancha comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice
