Benifuuki No. 1 - Organic Japanese Green Tea

This Japanese green tea from the 1st picking in May is delicately fermented. It comes from the tea variety "Benifuuki" and has a very high content of the special active ingredient epigallocatechin gallate 3 (EGCG 3). The light green, clear and exceedingly flowery cup has an unmistakable exquisite bitter note.

Storage

In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we recommend to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer. 

The production and also the fragrance are similar to that of Oolong tea. However, the freshly harvested leaves are not simply heated, but steamed briefly at especially high temperatures. Furthermore, the partial fermentation does not take place in a warm environment as with Oolong, but in the dark at a low temperature! Only the further drying and pressing process corresponds to that of Oolong tea. Thanks to this special processing this unusual tea stays green like a real Japanese tea!

Customer evaluation "Benifuuki No. 1 - Organic Japanese Green Tea"
27 Feb 2020

Leider hat die Qualität sehr nachgelassen und der Kundendienst hat nicht geantwortet

Seit mehreren Jahren freue ich mich jeden morgen auf meine Tasse Benifuuki No 1. Daher war meine Enttäuschung umso größer als ich die neue Großpackung anbrach und feststellte, dass der Tee völlig geschmacklos ist. Der feine Geschmack des Tees, den ich bislang in den 50g-Packungen gekauft habe, ist nicht vorhanden. Eine diesbezüglich an KEIKO gerichtete Mail ist unbeantwortet geblieben.

Admin 4 Mar 2020

Liebe Frau Raabe,

zuerst einmal möchten wir uns dafür entschuldigen, dass wir auf Ihre Anfrage so lange nicht geantwortet haben. Das sollte nicht passieren.

Wir haben das Rückstellmuster zu Ihrer Charge verkostet und geben Ihnen recht, dass dieser sortenreine Tee anders schmeckt als in den Vorjahren. Allerdings schmeckt er unserer Meinung nach sehr wohl intensiv.
Um auf Ihre Beschwerde richtig eingehen zu können, würden wir gerne Ihre Packung prüfen. Haben Sie sie noch da? Wäre es möglich, sie uns zuzusenden? Sie erhalten selbstverständlich einen Retourenschein.

Vorab möchten wir Ihnen als kleine Wiedergutmachung je eine Packung Benifuuki aus der 1.und 2.Pflückung zusenden und freuen uns auf Ihre ehrliche Rückmeldung!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Ihr KEIKO-Team
