We discovered Awa Bancha almost three years ago; this summer, after a long Japanese travel hiatus, we were thrilled to experience part of it’s production process this summer.
This box contains two lots of Kamikatsu Awa Bancha and one of Naka Awa Bancha (25g of each).All three have a sweet and tangy mouthfeel, but display very different notes of cedar, flowers and tropical wood.We’ve barely started exploring the Kamikatsu batches, as we only had a few sips at origin last week.
