Bancha: Is an organic green tea and as with all ‘teas’ Green tea is from the camellia sinensis plant. The differences is just in the processing. A Chinese green tea is heated to stop the oxidization (turning brown) via pan frying. Thus also adding to a rounded ball shaped leaf. In Japan it is cut, steamed and flattened.
Location: The organic green tea use in our blends are from Zhejiang Province and made to Japanese specifications.
Benefits: Green tea is rich in cancer hating properties. It contains numerous anti-oxidants and polyphenols. It has more of a medium level of caffeine.
Bancha is best done at 90-95˚ for about 3-4 minutes. Within that range you can get multiple steepings out of the same 2-3g of tea.
