Backlog from yesterday. I recently bought two new tea tins to match my existing ones from World Market (I love that store), so of course I rediscovered this tea which was in one of my older tins. I figured it’s autumn, so why not go for an autumn bancha, right? Is that how it works? Anyway, it steeped up to be a lovely transparent light green with a slightly sweet, vegetal flavor.
I particularly like drinking this one alongside my meals because of the vegetal flavor. I don’t like having sweeter or flavored teas when I’m eating because it throws me off. Besides, Japanese greens seem to always complement foods nicely.
