Loose-leaf Bancha (Japanese Green Tea) from Hime

Loose-leaf green tea showing dark gray-green, brownish-green leaves, some stemView Full Resolution

This photo shows typical loose-leaf bancha of a relatively low grade, but fresh and good quality. The leaf is relatively large, reflecting the fact that this tea is lower-grade than sencha, made from larger, more mature leaves, but the leaves are also mostly broken, and there is also some stem in the mix.
