Sip down. Used a little more leaf than normal. Steep 1 minute. Oh my goodness is this hitting the spot today. I cannot believe my tastes have changed so much that I would ever say that about a Japanese green. It used to be the bane of my tea existence. What’s more, Bancha is supposed to be a people’s tea – of a lower grade than Sencha. I guess I am just a peasant at heart because this is wonderful.
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss, I would never have tried this on my own. I intend to re-steep this the rest of the work day.
