A Great Introductory Tea
Japanese Bancha tea is a popular daily tea, featuring nutrients such as theanine, catechins (polyphenols), flavinoids, vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids. It is harvested late in season, made up of the leaves and stems of the higher-grade Sencha green tea that is picked in the spring. Because of it's later harvest date, Bancha green tea is typically less caffeinated than many other green teas. Great for those just beginning to experiment with tea drinking, its flavor can be described as pleasantly grassy, with a mild vegetal aroma.
