drank Bancha by Rishi Tea
4 tasting notes

I like sencha but I love bancha. I didn’t think much of this one until a particularly hot summer day inspired me to cold-brew it. With no expectations, I took my first sip.

Wow. At low temperatures (8°C / 45°F), this tea is a totally different experience.

No astringency, no bitterness— just the aromas of toasted rice, dried grass and sugarcane, followed by a delayed but pronounced mouth-smacking sweetness that lingers on my gums and tongue for several minutes. Someday I’ll include formal tasting notes but at the moment I’m sipping on a tall glass of this tea and enjoying it too much to bother.

Iced 4 min, 0 sec 12 g 17 OZ / 500 ML

I like to know which teas I should (or shouldn’t) buy next or buy again. To that end, I keep track of my thoughts and feelings of the teas I’ve had so far.

For me, experiencing a cup of tea— from dry leaf to the final infusion —cannot be quantified. For this reason, I do not include a rating with my tasting notes.
