Founded in 1875, Ryuouen has been a trusted source for discerning Kyoto-ites for over a century. Ryuouen has no website and only takes orders in their Kyoto store or by phone. This late harvest Uji bancha is a large leaf, deep roasted houjicha, that is drum roasted until reaching a deep brown, almost black hue. Incredibly fragrant and easy drinking, this is the perfect cup to unwind with and an especially wonderful accompaniment to a meal as well.
