Unlike most houjicha which is made from lower-quality bancha, Zansho is made by roasting first flush sencha leaves and stems, resulting in a deep, full-bodied tea. The leaves give Zansho its punch and body with the stems providing a touch of sweetness. With a well-developed roast, this houjicha is strong enough to pair with meals yet complex enough to be enjoyed on its own.
