Customer's Review

Learn what our customers are saying about Organic 3 Years Bancha Green Tea:


The Japanese-style green tea scent is very relaxing.

Due to busy work, I have trouble falling asleep at night. I bought it as a caffeine-less drink that I can drink at ease even before sleeping at night. Though usually, I'm not too fond of the taste of decaffeinated tea and coffee, this 3 Years Bancha's taste suits me very well.

When I have trouble sleeping at night, I feel calm when I drink it, which helps me very well....Mr. Mizoguchi


I started drinking 3 Years Bancha when I was pregnant.

I started drinking 3 Years Bancha and quit drinking coffee, black tea, and ryokucha (green tea) when I was pregnant. This Bancha’s taste is very easy to drink. The price is reasonable, and it warms the body. I would like to continue drinking it after giving birth....Ms Yoshizawa


My first organic Bancha..

I've been drinking Bancha green tea for a long time, but it's my first time to try organic Bancha. Since my children are still so young, I was worried about inorganic products with pesticides and radiation. While I was looking for various products, I came across this product!

It tastes good, and the kids drink it a lot. Thank you....Ms 5oo3iii


I've started the macrobiotic diet, so I drink 3 Years Bancha Green Tea instead of ryokucha green tea.

I like this a lot because it has no peculiar taste and less bitter so that I can drink it a lot. Maybe because it doesn't contain caffeine, I feel good and don't break my stomach even if I drink a lot. I will repurchase it....Ms Hiroe Sugiyama


Relaxing and soothing tea.

I drink it before bed because it has almost no caffeine. It has a relaxing and soothing taste, very delicious....Ms MARIE


I can drink this tea without worry during pregnancy.

I learned about this product during pregnancy and started drinking Bancha green tea. I can drink it without worry, and it was a great help for a tea lover such as me!...Anonymous Buyer

Message from The Uji Matcha Producer - Harimaen

We have been doing organic tea cultivation for more than 20 years.

Before that, we took two full days to spray all the tea fields with pesticides. And so we were producing the general agriculture tea that sprayed with pesticide seven to eight times.

One Year in Showa 47Th Year, Summer -. I collapsed in the tea plantation when spraying the pesticide. The doctor said that if I keep spraying the pesticide in hot weather with light clothes like this, eventually I could damage my liver, or I can not ever drink any liquor.

That said, the pesticide will give a heavy burden on anyone who consumes any food with it.

Therefore, we decide to make organic tea cultivation that is pesticide-free and non-chemical fertilizer cultivation.


At first, we had a difficult time with organic cultivation. The harvested tea is decreasing, and other people told us that it is difficult to grow tea plants without pesticides.

But we keep doing the trials and errors for the sake of ourselves, our family, and people who continue to consume our product.

With this motive, our tree becomes more robust, and the harvest is gradually stabilized.

Tips for drinking 3 Years Bancha more deliciously

To drink 3 Years Bancha more deliciously,
Let's pay attention to water, kettle, and heat control.

1. Water
When steeping Bancha, it is recommended to use tap water passed through a water purifier or Japan domestic natural water classified as soft water (if you’re residing in Japan).
Mineral water is not suitable for Bancha because it has too much mineral content.

2. Kettle
The recommended type for boiling Bancha is clay kettle.
You can enjoy the Bancha deliciously without spoiling any of its original taste.

Choosing the right kettle type for boiling Bancha will help you to enjoy the utmost taste of your tea.

3. Heat Control
It's essential to control the heat when boiling Bancha.
First, put medium heat to heat the water. After the water boils and Bancha are added, reduce the heat to low heat and slowly simmer it until the tea reaches the desired color.

Please follow the heat control properly, and you can enjoy the Bancha to its fullest.
