Compared to sencha, tea leaves of bancha is larger with less caffeine and more catechin. Bancha is known under different names depending on the region, and is sometimes referred to as senryu. In Mie prefecture spring and summer harvested bancha is often referred to as yanagi-cha and autumn harvest as bancha.
