Commercial Description

Bancha - "coarse tea" - hardly deserves its humble name. Plucked in the summer, after the prime Sencha season, Bancha has a more subtle vegetal profile, with pleasant toasted notes and low astringency. It is an ideal tea to pair with food and presents an excellent choice for those seeking to minimize caffeine intake.

Brewing Instructions: (from TeaGschwendner)

One heaping teaspoon per 8oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled for approximately 7-8 minutes to 80°C/176°F. Allow to brew 1 min.
