Description

Certified organic bancha green tea from the Takeo family from Mie Prefecture. Compared to sencha, tea leaves of bancha is larger with less caffeine and more catechin.

Bancha is known under different names depending on the region, and is sometimes referred to as senryu 川柳. In Mie prefecture spring and summer harvested bancha is often referred to as yanagi-cha 柳茶 and autumn harvest as bancha 番茶. We have named our product 'Aoyanagi in May' for spring harvest, 'Aoyanagi' for summer harvest, and 'Bancha Organic' for autumn harvest.

Note: 50-gram bag packed by Yunomi loses its organic certification. 1kg bag from Takeo Tea Farm is certified organic.
