KEIKO Benifuuki No. 1 Leaves


Benifuuki No.1 is a variety of tea distinguished by a high methylated catechin (EGCG3) content. As a result, the Benifuuki No. 1 is popular amongst Japanese for its anti-allergies properties. It is processed in a similar manner to Oolongs during its final stage of production, i.e. light fermentation and milling of the leaves. Hence, the Benifuuki is hardly oxidised and retains its green colour.

  1. Boil water and allow it to cool to 80°C to 85°C.
  2. Put one teaspoon (estimated 3g) of tea into a cup of 200ml cooled water.
  3. Allow the first infusion to steep for no longer than one minute.
