Good Ol' Bancha
Our Good Ol' Bancha is light bodied, yet richly flavoured, while the light astringency and mild woodsy notes make for a highly refreshing tea. Bancha is casual tea, hence its name 'common tea', making it perfect for everyday. It remains one of the most commonly drunk teas for its affordability, mild flavour and low caffeine content.

Third or fourth infusions require longer times of 90+ seconds. Please remember, these are guidelines to get you started and you may find your preference is to adjust them.
