USDA organic. Just tea! Nothin' else! No added flavors! What is Bancha? There are several harvests (a.k.a. flushes) of tea each year. Bancha is a traditional, daily-use, Japanese green tea variety that is made from mature leaves, plucked in the summer or autumn, while Mat-cha and Sen-cha are varieties made from young, tender leaves, plucked in the spring. Why use green tea? It is well known that tea in all of its forms, black, green, roasted and white, has a significant antioxidant action. Aging, stress and inhaling polluted air can cause an imbalance of free radicals vs. antioxidant substances, both produced naturally in the body. By including foods or teas with antioxidant action in your diet, you can help restore balance, slowing down and protecting against degenerative processes in the body. How does it taste? A strong tea with a somewhat sweet and astringent taste. Certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).
