"Batabata ​-​cha​" (also known as "tatecha" or "furicha") ​is one of the local traditional banchas of Japan that has been historically enjoyed in the ​Itoigawa​ (Niigata prefecture) region ​for a long timeBatabatacha is said to have originated in the neighboring prefecture of Toyama Prefecture in the town of Asahimachi Birudan. Today, it is a rare tea. This batabatacha from Seikoen is made by boiling the blended batabata tea androasted soybeans, hojicha (roasted tea), and tea flowers. Then, adding a ​tiny bit ​of salt, and whipping​ the drink​ with a special chasen​, kind of like one would do to make matcha. ​​ It is said that the unique name​, "batabata"​ comes from the sound of making ​this particular ​tea or the rushing hours of the morning​. In Japanese, "batabata" is one of the onomatopoeias that signifies commotion and ​when used as an adverb, can mean flapping, rattling or cluttering (noises). 

Note: The special bamboo batabata-cha chasen that is used to make this tea is available through Seikoen.
