Bancha Hoji Cha - Toasted Tea.  A very popular Japanese speciality.   These are the larger leaves taken from the lower part of the same bush as Sencha.  Flat, pressed Bancha leaves are roasted to provide a lovely, toasty flavour. The beverage is golden brown in colour, mellow and low in caffeine making it ideal as a first introduction to green tea.  

Use 1 heaped teaspoon per cup and steep for 1 minute in 80°C water.

    I love this tea, so different to the usual black and green teas. Very refreshing but very tasty too. Particularly good at breakfast or in the morning

    Bancha Hoji Cha is well worth trying.

    I recently drifted from Green Tea to Oolong but then found Bancha Hoji Cha. I particularly like the clean nutty flavour of this tea, reminiscent of oolongs but less variable, and this is my second order of this wonderful tea.
