Benifuuki No. 1 - Organic Japanese Green Tea

Unlike regular Green Tea this Japanese green tea specialty from the 1st picking in May is slightly fermented. It comes from the tea variety "Benifuuki" and has a very high content of the antioxidative or antiallergic catechines EGCg and 3MeEGCg (EGCg3).

The scent and flavor of this years harvest, when all conditions are just right during the time of the Benifuuki Spring picking surprised even us.

We are delighted by this new harvest: As soon as you open the package a wonderful smell streams out, characteristic for Benifuuki and a little like that of very fine Oolong tea. The leaf structure is good and of a luscious green. In the cup the tea develops a soft green color with golden reflexions and caresses the tongue with playfully fruity and light with a subtle tartness and the elegant notes of jasmine in the scent. 

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"
8 Feb 2021

Ganz nach meinem Gusto "Healthy and Tasty"

Oolong!? Oder wie!? Oder was!?
Heute nun landete der erste Benifuuki, No. 1 aus Japan in meiner Teetasse. Allein schon der Duft entführte mich ins ferne China, denn dort gibt es hervorragende Oolong Tees. Sie sind zwischen Grünem und schwarzem Tee angesiedelt, da sie fermentiert sind. Kenner nennen sie auch "Der Champagner der Tees".
Der Benifuuki, No. 1 ist ebenfalls leicht anfermentiert, was sich auch in köstlichstem Maße am Gaumen präsentiert.
Blumig-verspielt....feine Noten von Jasmin...durch die zuhauf enthaltenen Catechine herb, aber keinesfalls bitter und ohne Adstringenz. Froh und munter tanzen die Aromen Ringelreihen. Ich bin entzückt.

Vielen Dank für die Wiedergutmachung

Die jetzige Charge in der 50 g als auch der 200 g Packung ist wieder von hervorragender Qualität.
Nussig, Umami .... Ich habe natürlich meinen Jahresbedarf damit gedeckt. Ein bisschen Egoismus hilft den Rest des 200 g Beutels von der vorhergehenden Charge aufzubrauchen.

Sehr gut

Hatte mir den Tee aufgrund der Vorbewertung mit nur einem halben Stern gekauft. In dieser schlechten Bewertung stand zu meiner grossen Überraschung, dass die Dame sich jeden Morgen auf ihre Tasse Tee gefreut hatte und dass ihr nur die neuste Charge nicht schmeckte. Meine zugesandten 50 g waren ebenso hervorragend und ich möchte gerne nachbestellen. Ist die Großpackung wirklich schlechter?

Admin 28 Oct 2020

Liebe Monokelkobra,

schön, dass du dem Tee trotz oder gar wegen der Bewertung eine Chance gegeben hast! Aktuell stammen die 50g und 200g aus der gleichen Charge, die Großpackung sollte also der Qualität der 50g Packung entsprechen.

Da Benifuuki als sortenreiner Tee und in recht kleinen Chargen hergestellt wird, können die natürlich bedingten Schwankungen im Aroma bei diesem Tee allerdings etwas größer ausfallen als bei anderen KEIKO Tees üblich.

Liebe Grüße vom KEIKO TEAm

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
