Commercial Description

Organic Bancha is smooth and light, with a subtle astringency and gentle notes of rhubarb. It appears willow-green in the cup and gives off an herbal aroma reminiscent of oregano. Grown organically and harvested between the main Sencha seasons, it is a refreshing lower-grade tea.

This tea was a very pleasant surprise, being extremely refreshing and full of nice green tea flavor. This is a true 'aracha' or farmer's tea, made from leaves and twigs of the same tea bushes used to make Obubu's excellent sencha teas. It has a mild sweetness and an aroma that is very much of green vegetal quality. Not a highly refined tea, it has a primal character that stands up to several steeps and is at a great price.
