Green tea from Kagoshima, south Japan
 "What is BENIFUUKI?" It is a Camellia sinensis L. tea variety – cultivar "Benifuuki".
This variety is of strong stature and very resistant to diseases. The leaves smell wonderfully. The production – light fermentation and light milling of the leaves – is somewhat similar to that of Oolong. However, the tea is not just heated, but treated with hot steam. This gives the impression that the tea was pan-fried. Gentle partial fermentation is done in dark places, at low temperatures, and not in light and warm places as is the case of Oolongs. Thus, Benifuuki is virtually not oxidized, preserving its green colour.
Only the final processing, i.e. further drying and milling, is similar to those of Oolongs. Another characteristic is its high content of a special Epigallocatechingallate, EGCG3, attributable to the plant species and intense steam treatment. In Japan, BENIFUUKI is considered a special medicinal tea intended as a therapy for allergies.

Preparation:
Benifuuki should be brewed hotter (80–90°C) and can be steeped for longer than traditional Kabusecha to let its flavor fully unfold. We recommend two to three infusions. The liquor from tea from first plucking is not deep dark green, but light and clear. The first impression is its astringent taste. The exquisite bitter note is topped by an intense flowery scent, reminiscent of lily of the valley, bark resin and honey. Depending on dosage and steeping time, the tea can be served delicate/mild, slightly bitter or bitter. Why not try the unknown – and enjoy a new tea aroma!

Green Tea & Health
As green tea leaves are not fermented, green tea has the highest content of antioxidants (compared to fermented teas). It also contains significant amount of polyphenols such as epicatechin, epicatechin gallate, epigallocatechin and catechin. The content of polyphenols differs for various tea types. Owing to these substances, tea is very beneficial – preventing cancer, cardiovascular diseases, infections, caries and many other difficulties.
At present, about 400 various substances are known to be in the tea leaf and they are called active substances. The tea leaf contains mainly: caffeine, polyphenols (tannins), flavanols, flavonoids, theophylline and theobromine (related to caffeine), fats, waxes, saponins, essential oils, carotene, vitamins C, B1, B2, B5, B10, B12, E, K, enzymes, iron compounds, K, F, Na, Ca, Cu, Ni, Zn, trace elements and many others.
Tannins are anti-inflammatory, soothe stomach and intestines, and heal the mucous membranes of the respiratory system during colds. Theophylline stimulates blood circulation and relieves muscle spasms. Fluorine prevents dental caries.
Polyphenols (tannins) are present in all teas and are responsible for their slightly bitter astringent taste and characteristic aroma. Once ingested, they are absorbed into various organs. They are excellent antioxidants.
