Bancha is a traditional style of green tea enjoyed by most in Japan. This tea consists of mature tea leaves and stems from the autumn and winter harvests, then gently pan-roasted to create a nutty sweet flavor and golden infusion. Because it is harvested later in the year using more mature tea leaves, it develops more tannin and less caffeine than most black teas. It is an energizing and soothing cup of hot tea, and also makes a delicious thirst-quenching cold brew tea as well.


Bancha is a refreshing green tea with a mildly sweet, grassy flavor and subtle pan-roasted aroma.



Kirishima region (Kagoshima, Japan), also known as "tensonkourin" in Japanese myths, is deeply shrouded in fog, as the name describes ("Kiri" = fog, "shima"), and grows fragrant and delicious teas at an altitude ranging from 350 to 500 meters above sea elevation.
