Bancha means something like “plain” or “regular” tea in Japanese. It was the most common tea in Japan before Sencha took over the top spot. Bancha is a simpler variant of Sencha; it is based on the large mature leaves of late summer and even of the autumn. The tea is produced in most regions. It has a fairly simple taste without any special finesse, but in some cases is really well-balanced and has a good taste. Also, the tea’s caffeine content is fairly low, which is why it is common for Japanese parents to give it to their children. Its straightforward and neutral character makes it well suited to many different dishes, preferably ones that are robust, spicy and tasty.
