Japan Green Teas

Green Tea is the most popular beverage of choice in Japan. Japan is both a major producer and consumer of green tea. An average of 142,977 metric tons of tea leaves are consumed annually in Japan.

When compared to green teas from other countries, Japan teas are easily recognized by their rich, green dark leaves. This is the result of steaming the leaves immediately after plucking and then air-drying them to preserve their freshness. The two-step process captures the flavour, fragrance and beautiful colour of the leaves. The result of this efficient processing is a pleasant and refreshing beverage that is almost like having the leaves plucked directly off the plant.

 

Ban Cha

Bancha is produced in Shimda, Shizuoka Prefecture, known as “Green Tea Capital”. Ban Cha is a late harvest Sen Cha – leaves are picked in the late summer. The leaves are larger, thicker than spring teas and release a more robust flavour and a“yellowish” colour liquor. Late harvest Sencha is believed to be rich in antioxidants and catechins.

The flavour of the liquor is light-bodied and vegetal, with grassy notes. The initial sip of the liquor has a slight bite, but the finish is sweet and fresh.  This is a very pleasing, satisfying and traditional Japanese sencha.
