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.
