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.

I've tried many green teas over the years and fine this one to be the most fully flavorful & satisfying. I like the first steeping best, but the second steeping is also quite good.
