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!

Wirklich außergewöhnlich

Einfach ein Geschenk der Natur! :) Wunderbarer Duft und Geschmack, tolle Wirkung. In meinem Fall hilft er mir, meinen sehr niedrigen Blutdruck ein wenig anzuheben, so dass ich mich besser fühle.

Wunderbarer Tee

Dieses Jahr ist der Benifuuki noch facettenreicher und er lässt sich tatsächlich gute 4 mal aufgießen. Ich bin begeistert, wie grüner Tee jedes Mal ein wenig anders schmecken kann, abhängig von Ziehzeit, Wasser und wohl auch eigenen Gemüt. Ich möchte noch kurz euren Kimura Sencha loben, als auch den SAE Tezumi, die beide leider nicht mehr verfügbar sind. Dies sind auch Tees höchster Güte. Bestellung und Versand klappt reibungslos. Auch bin ich sehr angetan von der Verpackung des Tees. Sie hebt zusätzlich die außerordentliche Qualität hervor. Dazu die kleinen Klips zum verschließen - wirklich gelungen. Ich bestelle gerne wieder bei euch!

Our feedback: Liebe Frau Rech, herzlichen Dank für die schöne Bewertung - das freut uns sehr!  Kimura Sencha und Sae Tezumi sind nun vorübergehend ausverkauft, kommen aber beide wieder - wir hoffen der Benifuuki hilft Ihnen durch die "Durststrecke". Schöne Grüße aus Diepholz, Ihr KEIKO TEAm

Mein Lieblingstee

Meine Frau und ich trinken den Tee jeden Morgen seit ein paar Monaten und sind begeistert. Geschmacklich super fein und er hilft uns bei Heuschnupfen sehr gut. Ein paar Blätter gegessen und das Niesen hört auf.

Weniger Zeit, mehr Aufgüsse

Dass Benifuuki #1 sehr weit vorn mitspielt, hatte ich ja schon geschrieben. Mittlerweile sagt er mir geschmacklich sogar noch mehr mit der chinesischen Gong-Fu-Aufgußmethode zu (vgl. John Blofeld: Das Tao des Teetrinkens; t-Magazin 1 vom April 2022). Abgesehen vom ersten Aufguß, bei dem die Kanne sofort wieder geleert wird ("Blätter waschen" bzw. "der Aufguß für den Feind") wird wenig Wasser lediglich ca. 10 Sekunden auf den Blättern stehen gelassen (ggf. im weiteren Verlauf Verlängerung der Ziehzeit und/oder höhere Wassertemperatur verwenden). Damit erziele ich 6 weitere durchaus wohlschmeckende Aufgüsse, jeder mit einem eigenen Charakter. Der siebte ist dann zugegebenermaßen dünn und zeigt hauptsächlich gemüsige Aromen. Einfach mal als Alternative ausprobieren!

Benifuuki no. 1

This is my first order from keiko and I am overall quite satisfied by the products that I received I ordered Benifuuki (no1) and also Bancha Items arrived properly packed, along with all required instructions in English Taste-wise, I find Benifuuki very nice and always look forward to have it along with my breakfast. I would also be keen in having it in early evening, but due to moderate caffeine content, I decided not to - and this is why I also ordered the Bancha to try it out, but not really to my taste. So next time I try something else I also wish that the price was a bit lower, but in the end of the day you get what you pay for. Quality is very good, shipping/packaging also no problem, so I intend to buy again from Keiko in the future

Es gibt nichts zu verbessern

"Um .... die Produktqualität stets weiter zu verbessern," wurde ich gebeten ein Urteil abzugeben. Ich weigere mich mit großem Nachdruck dem nachzukommen, denn es gibt nichts zu verbessern. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Eschner Siegfried

Super

Ich bin so glücklich mit diese Tee. Es ist Kraftoll und ich liebe die Geschmack.

Springtime is Benifuuki time

It tastes good all year round - but especially in spring, when hay fever and allergies are in high season, Benifuuki is an insider tip!

Benifuuki No. 2 - Organic Japanese Green Tea
This Japanese green tea from the 2nd picking is very tenderly fermented. It is made from the tea variety "Benifuuki". This is characterized by a particularly high content of the special active ingredient epigallocatechin gallate 3 (EGCG 3), which reaches its peak similar to the caffeine content at the 2nd picking. The yellowish-green, clear cup has a slightly tart aroma with a floral note, which is particularly emphasized when the infusion time is shorter. The production and also the scent is similar to that of the Oolong tea. However, the freshly harvested leaves are not simply heated, but steamed for a short time while overheated. 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. Storage In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we ask you to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer.

Aki Benifuuki - Organic Japanese Green Tea
This Japanese green tea from the autumn picking is very tenderly fermented. It is made from the tea variety "Benifuuki". It is characterised by a high content of the special active ingredient epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG 3). The caffeine content of the autumn picking is comparatively low so that the tea is also suitable for the afternoon. The yellowish, clear cup has a milder aroma than the first two pickings with a gentle citrus note. The bitter constituents contained in the cup only become clearly apparent in taste when prepared strongly and infused for a long time. 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.

Benifuuki Powder - Organic Japanese Tea Powder
The tea variety Benifuuki is characterised by a particularly high content of catechins (EGCG and EGCG3) which are readily available to the body and for this reason it is often drunk in Japan for allergies such as hay fever. For the first time we offer the tea variety Benifuuki not only as leaf tea, but also as a golden green powder, which we can grind very finely and freshly right on our stone mills here on site. One strong or two light portions per day are recommended. Due to its intensive aroma it is very economical in use. Already half the usual dosage results in a finely fragrant, particularly good foaming tea. Aficionados like to drink it pure. For those who find the taste too tart, we recommend a mild dosage, a combination with mild mulberry leaf powder or use as a supplement in drinks and food. Prepared with a little water and lemon and/or apple juice, it is, for example, a sparkling refreshing drink. Storage In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the powder in the best possible way, we recommend to seal the bag well and store it in a cool and dark place, ideally in your refridgerator or freezer.
