Green Bancha Tea is blended with toasted sesame seeds and caramel flavors. The appetizing flavor can definitely remind you of Japan’s green tea flavoured desserts. It is refreshing, yet sweet.
Bancha (pronounced BAHN-cha) is an outstanding everyday organic green tea with a refreshing flavor that is both moderately vegetal and savory. Bancha is a traditional style of green Japanese tea made out of the mature leaves and stems of the autumnal and winter harvests. This organic loose tea renders a light-bodied golden infusion with a pleasant roasted note and creamy mouthfeel. Bancha is much smoother and less astringent than many of our other Japanese Green Teas. So, if you are looking for a Japanese green tea that is less astringent than Sencha, Gyokuro, or Kukicha, then Bancha is a great alternative.
