A quick question for you all! Do you know what Firewood Ban-cha is?

In the organic food industry, Firewood Ban-cha is known as Sannen Ban-cha (three years ban-cha). It contains significantly less amount of caffeine, making it easier for people of all ages to drink and has advantages like curing hay fever.
The tea leaves and stems are roasted twice and aged in a traditional method to bring out the smell making it softer and easier to drink. In last couple of years, plantation of the firewood ban-cha has been highly appreciated as it helps fertilize the abandoned fields.
Mainly focusing on Firewood Ban-cha, this event will serve various kinds of drinks and foods made of rare Japanese teas (alcohol also available).
Teas used on this day are organically produced firewood ban-cha, haku-cha, black tea in collaboration with Makiiri Ban-cha Co., Ltd.
As mentioned earlier, there will be different types of dishes using tea and fresh sprout, such as tea Margherita pizza, chameshi rice, tea Caprese, etc. And for the drinks, there will be a variety of different drinks using haku-cha mojito, shochu with bancha, bancha coffee, Shizuoka prefecture’s sake, and many more. Also, a tea room will be set up with all the equipment from Shizuoka, and serve freshly made tea by a Japanese tea specialist.
