Bancha is the late-harvested autumnal green tea of Japan. Houjicha is roasted Bancha and has a refreshing and nourishing toasted flavour with great warmth, subtlety and complexity. Houjicha can be enjoyed at any time of day and is an excellent drink for a sunny afternoon in late summer and early autumn. It is well suited to drinking after dinner due to its palate-cleansing toasty flavour and its low caffeine content – this is not a tea that will keep you awake at night.
