Our Bancha has a fresh, vegetal palate and pretty substantial body, with hints of sweet pea. Although Bancha is often considered common and can be less prized than other green harvests, this particular cultivation is very nice and smooth-drinking. As we look for another Sencha to replace our previous option which is no longer available, this is an excellent substitute.
