Amacha actually means “sweet tea,” because on its own, this herbal tea is way sweeter than sugar or honey. Made from fermented hydrangea leaves, brewed amacha is a warm yellow color. Amacha is popular during celebrations of Buddha’s birthday (April 8). Because of this, amacha is also sometimes referred to as Buddha’s tea.
