Episode 033: Bancha


There are a lot of different varieties of green tea — matcha, sencha, gyokuro, etc. — and with these varieties come different flavor profiles. When someone says to me “I don’t like green tea”, I immediately think that they probably haven’t tried different ones.

Bancha is my green tea variety of choice — mellow and mature and suitable for daily drinking. It’s not as aromatic as sencha, but it has a nice robust flavor that goes well with a lot of different foods. Which green tea variety is your favorite?
