'''Awa Bancha''' (阿波番茶) is a [[Hei Cha|fermented tea]], or rather a fermented [[Bancha]]. It is only produced in a few places in Fukuoka and Tokushima Prefecture. To [[ferment]] the tea is first boiled, crushed, pressed and then dried. The pressing process lasts up to a month. During this time, the tea is fermented by lactic acid bacteria, similar to the process used for sauerkraut.
