Commercial Description

Produced from the last harvest of the year, Organic Kyobancha has a gentle roasted flavour. Its warm earthy fragrance and light brown liquor bring to mind a sunny autumn day. Grown organically, it provides a light and soft tea experience.

Brewing Instructions: (from Obubu Tea)

We recommend steeping it in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, or steeping it with cold water for 2-3 hours for iced tea.

The aroma is delightfully loamy and mildly roasted, it reminds me of the forest at the end of autumn. Brewing the tea makes the roasted aroma and loamy aroma more intense and it brings in notes of umami as well.

The taste is earthy, loamy, and a hint of woody with very mild roasted flavor. I have to be careful to not chug this tea because it is delicious and soothing. The mouthfeel is buttery and smooth. As the tea cools it becomes sweeter and smoother.

Roasting the bancha leaves produces a tea that combines the best of hojicha and bancha together in one brew. The light grassy flavors are enhanced by the light smokiness, and the astringency is cut to a minimum. The sample I had of this was used up quickly as I tried brewing it both hot and cold the same day, and both were equally satisfying. I hope to order more of this soon, as I have found all of Obubu's teas to be exceptionally delicious.
