Bancha Green Tea Significance:

Bancha is a common style of traditional Japanese green tea made of leaves and stems from the late season harvests. The Bancha tea harvest is from the same tea plants that provide the higher Sencha grade of tea in the spring. For those new to Japanese green teas, Bancha tea is a great introductory tea at a modest price with a refreshing vegetal, grassy flavor and a pleasant mildly roasted aroma. In Japan, Bancha green tea is popular as a daily tea. Bancha green tea is typically lower in caffeine than many other green teas because the broad, course leaves are harvested late in the season.
