Bancha

Bancha

This intense golden-yellow bancha has a stronger taste than sencha and a delicate, fresh, straw-like fragrance.

Bancha is picked from the same bushes as sencha but later in the summer and autumn. This gives it a rougher texture that results in higher concentrations of natural fluoride, which is considered beneficial to the teeth.
