Organic Miyazaki Haru Bancha
Haru Bancha (Haru meaning Spring) is a rather rare speciality pan-fired organic bancha from Miyazaki. It contains the established coarse winter leaves, stems, and twigs that are harvested from the parent branches of kanayamidori tea bushes in late March each year.
The brewed tea has an exceptionally “green” Spring aroma, a wonderfully balanced, gently sweet, yet incredibly satisfying taste, and a yellow liquor color that would brighten even the dullest of days.
It can be drunk and enjoyed anytime of year, but the gentle nature of this tea is especially nice during Spring when ones body enters Spring detox mode. It’s rejuvenating, vitalizing, low caffeine, and it’s a sure bet your stomach will be happy with you if you do drink it in Spring! It’s also the perfect pre-shincha beverage that really gets you in the mood for more Spring Japanese green tea!
