drank Bancha Suruga by Den's Tea
4825 tasting notes

This is an excellent Bancha, one of the best that I’ve tried (I should mention that I’ve not tried a lot of Bancha, but I’ve had a few). It has a very robust flavor … strongly vegetative, with hints of butter and I am getting a strong savory quality to this too … it kind of reminds me of miso broth with a teensy bit of seaweed in it. But, I like this MUCH better than I like seaweed (which I don’t really like at all, to be honest). But it has that same salty, savory, briny kind of taste to it.

A very satisfying cup.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
