Ban-cha – Toasted Green Tea
Immediately after harvest, our Japanese growers quickly steam the fresh, organic leaves to preserve the green leaf. An additional step of careful roasting creates the characteristic toasty quality.

Does anyone else pick ever brew up a tea just to prep their taste buds for something you really want? I often do this after eating or brushing my teeth. Sometimes its a flavored tea and I’m like “alright that was okay, now to taste some real tea”. Today it’s this. Stout, roasted, dark and bagged. Easy to brew and no commitment to reinfuse. I think a nice dark oolong or black tea will come after this. Good day to snuggle up with a blanket, book and a never ending cup of tea as snow blankets the ground.

This tea reminds me of kuchika and I prefer kuchika over this tea. I really don’t know what to say other than its drinkable. Its organic and its in a bag. Its just not my cup of tea. I think “bleh” might be a good word.

I’ve drunk my share of bancha and kukicha, and I like the latter better, too (at least it’s roasted), but that’s not saying a lot. Bottom line: They’re twigs. Gimme leaves!:)

A great dinner tea, I drank it piping hot because as it cooled it got more bitter and dry. No sweet undertones, just mossy and toasty.

Basic, no thought required, bags for work and home. I brew this one daily.

I got this for my boyfriend, who really doesn’t love the taste of regular tea. He likes the roasted, sweet taste of this, and it’s good with a little honey. A gentle pick-me up, easy to make, good for a fall morning.
