Our Bancha Suruga is produced from a bottom part of tea leaves that are big and thick. Compared to Sencha, Bancha is somewhat more astringent. Nevertheless, it is appreciated in Japan for its robust flavor. Bancha Suruga is an upgraded variation, using fresh green leaves picked right after the first flush tea.
