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.
