Kyoto Bancha, commonly known as Kyobancha, is a cherished tea that has been popular in the Kyoto region for many years. Made from large tea leaves that are harvested, along with their stems, during the spring and autumn, these leaves are then dried and roasted to create this unique tea. Kyobancha is distinguished by its distinct smoky aroma and gentle, soothing taste, resembling the appearance of hojicha but offering a completely different flavor and scent profile.

What sets Kyobancha apart is its low levels of stimulating components like caffeine and tannin. Due to this, it's often referred to as "baby bancha" in Kyoto, signifying its widespread use even among infants and young children. This gentle and familiar taste is an integral part of Kyoto culture, familiar to locals from a very young age.


We store our inventory in two locations: Japan and the United States. This is because we currently have a large customer base in America. In the future, we plan to expand our distribution centers to other countries. For details on shipping methods and delivery charges, please click here.

We strive to deliver our products to our customers as quickly and affordably as possible by stocking them in both Japan and the United States wherever feasible. However, for tea leaves that are sensitive to temperature and humidity, we ensure shipping from our temperature-controlled warehouses in Japan to maintain their quality.
