Kyobancha
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 2020 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.
