Iribancha has long been a favorite tea among Kyotoites, who often refer to it as Kyobancha. In response to popular demand, we have come out with this popular tea in a simple and convenient teabag form that we will make available throughout the year. During the hot summer weather, it's great served cold.

Note for first-timers: Iribancha possesses a distinctive flavor. For some it is an acquired taste, so we recommend newcomers trying it for the first time start with one package.

By grinding Iribancha and placing it in these tetrahedral teabags, we've made it possible to brew Iribancha quickly without diluting its flavor. Another convenient feature of this product is that it makes cleaning up afterwards a snap-all you have to do is throw away the teabag. We also recommend this product for people wanting to try out iribancha for the first time.

Features of Iribancha
Iribancha's greatest appeal comes from its distinctive aroma of smoked tea leaves and refreshing flavor. Many find iribancha's distinctive aroma so appealing that they make it their regular drink. Some, however, dislike it. People in Kyoto have long used iribancha for a variety of things, drinking it with meals, and throughout the day to stay hydrated, and also, because its caffeine content is very low, as an alternative to boiled and cooled water for babies.

How to prepare Iribancha

- When using a kyusu:
Just brew 1 teabag in 400 ml (14 oz) of freshly boiled water for 5 minutes. That's it!

- When making a large batch:
Just brew 2 teabags in 1 liter(1 quart) of freshly boiled water for 5 minutes. We recommend using a heat-resistant container.

The package is re-sealable, making it ideal for storing the teabags, and has preparation instructions and a description of the tea in both English and Japanese.
