To me, this Ginger Green from Thé Santé smells, looks, and tastes like a high-quality bancha tea. There is a good dose of ginger here, too, but it does not shroud the excellent tea base.
The liquor is pale greenish yellow and tastes very smoothy and bancha-esque. i am surprised that the tea is described by the company as sencha, not bancha, but it does not really matter in my case, as I happen to love both!
I am very optimistic that a second infusion of these fragrant leaves will produce a stronger ginger flavor perfect for a pitcher of iced tea!
