 Details: It's amazing what difference a few weeks make. Banchas are made of large, tougher leaves. As the season wears on, the chemical composition of the leaves change. By the time the Bancha harvest begins, the smoother-tasting polyphenols in the leaves have been replaced by harsher ones, and the leaves have lost amino acids that create sweetness and body. Bancha yields a grassier, lighter-bodied tea. Being an organic tea only accentuates the lightness.
 Dry Leaves: Bancha consists of wide leaves mixed with the stalk, ranging in color from sage green to khaki.
 Liquor: Bright yellow.
 Aroma: Bancha is grown in the summer, so it is a lively and grassy tea.
 Flavors: Lighter vegetal flavors of grass, celery, and wet wood.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Light-bodied, like most organic teas.
 Brewing Time: 3 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 175º
