This organic Bancha organic tea blend is made in through the cultivation efforts of the experienced organic farmers in the pristine mountain area of Haruno village in west Shizuoka, Japan.
This organic Bancha’s leaf was carefully plucked in Isagawa, also termed “organic valley” an organic plantation free boasting a beautiful view of surrounding mountains, and free of drift and use of chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. The semi-processed leaf is further post-refined in Mori-Machi, Shizuoka where the flavor and quality is checked and the leaf parts are finely proportioned before being packaged and ready for sale as a pure, organic tea!
Bancha is great on the go or when relaxing at home, and goes great after meals as a drink you can take in volume. Organic Bancha also goes well when you are on an empty stomach and need something to carry you over until your next meal. Characterized by its refreshing taste, Bancha is a tea you can steep with hot water in the cold season. When brewed, tea polysaccharides are naturally released.
