Review of Bancha Tea

5 of 104 of 54 of 563 of 100
FairGoodGood Value

A drinkable and inexpensive green tea with a mild flavor. I tried this shortly after Wegmans' bancha; the leaf of this tea is more intact, but the dry leaf is not particularly aromatic. I prefer Wegmans' offering even though it is more broken.

Brews a golden color cup with a lot of dust at the bottom. Mild aroma. Less of the corn-like aroma that I enjoy in a lot of bancha. More astringent than I'd like. Very mild flavor, especially relative to the amount of astringency.

I was a little disappointed in this tea, but I think this may have been because I tried it shortly after sampling Wegmans' bancha, which I thought was very good. I thought this tea just wasn't as good: less aromatic, but more astringent. To be fair, it was also about 2/3rds the price of that one, and this tea is organic certified, and that one isn't. That said, I still wouldn't mind drinking this one on a daily basis. It's mellow and pleasant.
