Japanese Bancha green tea is a delicious full flavoured woody tasting tea with many health benefits containing high antioxidant levels. A great introductoy tea for people new to green tea.

The first flush picking of Japanese tea is called Sencha tea. Bancha tea leaves are harvested after the second flush with firmer larger leaves being picked. Some people call this 3 year tea, because leaves up to 3 years old can be plucked.

Bancha with its woody and earthy strong flavoured taste is perfect for drinking with food as it does not get over powered compared to the weaker strength Sencha tea. It is less sweet than Sencha.

Like most green tea Bancha has many health benefits but unlike most it has large quantities of Vitamin P, a flavonoid, which strengthens the walls of small blood vessels. Bancha is low in caffeine making it a great drink for the evening.

To brew: add one teaspoon of tea per person in a pot, add boiling water and brew for 20 seconds. The same leaves can be re used several times.
