Japanese Bancha green tea bag is harvested from the same tree as the popular Sencha family of teas. However, the leaves for Bancha tea are harvested later, towards the start of autumn and almost up until winter when the leaves are larger. This is known as the ‘second flush’ of harvesting. Due to the fact that they are picked later in the year, Bancha tea is ranked at a lower grade than traditional Sencha tea. The advantage of this is that it makes Bancha tea much more affordable.
Bancha’s green tea bag’s relatively low price point makes it a good Japanese green tea for everyday drinking, particularly if you tend to drink three or more cups a day. Because the leaves are picked later in the year they tend to give Bancha a fuller-bodied flavor and aroma than you’d normally expect in a green tea. However, Bancha tea remains low in caffeine and a popular tea to have at mealtimes.
Highly refreshing and packed with antioxidants, Bancha is an excellent choice if you want to upgrade your tea drinking to several cups of Japanese tea every day and need a more affordable option than traditional Sencha based tea.
