At this point in the story, you may be wondering why we’ve sourced a traditional Japanese style tea from a grower in China. The answer is two-fold. Part one is that following the Fukushima nuclear event of 2011, much of Japan’s tea crop began to exhibit increased levels of radioactivity. For a company like ours where food safety is paramount, the increased risk to our customers was not worth the gamble. Part two is that the Bancha we’ve subsequently sourced from Zhejiang province rivals any Bancha we’ve sampled from anywhere. (In fact, our Tea Master mistook this tea for a Japanese grown variety the first time it was offered to him – no small feat!)
All that said, we know your customers will love this fabulous Japan-style Bancha. Plucked and produced according to ancient Japanese tradition, this is the tea to recommend the next time you’re asked for something easy drinking, at any time of day. Enjoy.
