Obubu Tea Farm; Wazuka, Japan
Unique to the city of Kyoto from which it gets its name, Kyobancha is harvested from tea leaves and twigs that have matured over the winter months and then roasted, producing a very woodsy flavor. As bancha, it is unrolled. Often called "bancha for babies" because it has almost no caffeine and also called "spring bancha" as it is harvested in March from winter-matured leaves. Rarely offered outside of Japan, it is even quite rare to find in supermarkets in Japan as well.
light-bodied / woodsy / sweet / very low caffeine
