About this tea

Bancha is the traditional daily green tea found throughout Japan. Made of mature tea leaves and stems from the autumn harvest, Bancha is gently pan-roasted to develop a nutty sweet flavor and golden infusion. Bancha makes a wonderfully quenching cold brew tea and has a mild caffeine level due to its roasting process.

Origin

Kagoshima

Kyushu Island, Japan

Kagoshima Prefecture is located at the southwest tip of Kyushu (the third largest island of Japan) and is largely mountainous and home to important lumber, fishing and agriculture industries. Much like the rest of Japan, this region has well manicured tea gardens with well-developed irrigation, and farmers follow strict growing procedures to produce this perfect tea bush shape and size.
