Bancha is a lower grade green tea from the lower leaves of the tea bush. Sometimes they roast these leaves to create a "roasted bancha" also known as "hojicha" tea which gives it a brownish appearance ends up tasting more like an oolong instead of a green tea. So the base of this tea is the roasted green tea, and then maple flavoring and almonds give it a fantastically sweet nutty maple flavor. If you like dark oolongs, this is a tea you will enjoy. You can steep it more like an oolong or black tea instead of like a green tea.
