Bancha is common in most Japanese households and is traditionally considered a refreshing everyday green tea. This tea is different from other Japanese green teas because it is made from older and larger leaves. Harvested from late summer through late autumn, Bancha is gently roasted to develop a pleasantly sweet, nutty flavor and a rich golden infusion. Taken naturally, grilled or with roasted cereal grains, this type of tea offers you a wide range of flavors and experiences. It is a great inexpensive tea, strong in flavor but low in caffeine, which makes it the perfect tea for you to drink anywhere and anytime you desire.
◆ Origin: Kagoshima, Japan.
◆ Tasting & Appearance: an exquisite woody flavor and a yellowish color embellished with a unique aroma make up the base of the tea that will delight your senses.
◆ Notes & Well Being: Bancha tea provides antioxidant benefits due to its polyphenols. Antioxidants help reduce damage caused by cell-damaging free radicals in your body. Being harvested later in the season and with tea leaves that are broad and coarse, the caffeine content in this Bancha is very low, so if you are looking for a caffeine alternative, this may be a healthier choice for you.
