Review of Bancha Suruga

7 of 104 of 53 of 577 of 100
Very GoodGoodReasonable

This is truly an "upgraded" Bancha, picked just after first flush from the larger, thicker base of the leaves. More astringent than sencha, but well balanced in flavor and aroma. I love the grassy flavor and feel it leaves in your mouth.

Den's Bancha Suruga is wonderfully refreshing when brewed as per their instructions, and I have found it to be excellent when ice brewed, as well. It is produced in the Shizuoka province of Japan of the Yabukita cultivar/species which is hard to find since most "Bancha" teas available in the US are actually from China.

A nice tea to sip casually through out the day.
