Organic Spring Bancha

The first taste of Spring 2011 arrived earlier this week! However, not a Shincha, it’s Organic Miyazaki Haru Bancha. It’s made from mature winter leaves (not Spring buds) that are harvested at the end of March. A pan-fired tea, not steamed, with a very distinctive fresh Spring aroma:

An easy brewer that steeps well at any temperature between 80°C/176°F – 95°C/203°F. To bring out more of that wonderful fresh Spring aroma use a higher water temperature!
