drank Bancha Suruga by Den's Tea
4843 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 am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
