This may be the tea that reconciles me to bancha. The color is green-gold, and the aroma is grassy with just a hint of rose. The taste is fresh and light, with just a hint of sweetness. I steeped for just about 2 minutes, and there is only a tiny hint of bitterness. Most banchas taste horribly bitter to me, and this tastes more like a lower grade sencha. Which is a good thing.

This is a refreshing summer cup for a hot and muggy Florida morning.

I found my way here from the tea drinking discussion group on Ravelry. I knit, sing, garden, cook and generally putter around on the Gulf Coast. I have a husband and two beagles.
