Japanese Benifuki is a rare and delicious tea grown in Miyazaki prefecture on the southern island of Kyushu. Japan is famously known for their distinctive and fine green teas, yet their limited black tea varietals are just as unique and exquisite.
Interestingly enough, Benifuki is a tea cultivar that was developed for producing black tea, but after the discovery of its high content of polyphenols, no Benifuki is more often used to make Sencha green teas for medicinal purposes (treating certain types of allergic conditions)!
Once steeped, Japanese Benifuki produces a warm and deep copper color, with a light to medium body. Our Japanese Benifuki is floral, refreshing, and is balanced in sweetness. Try our rare Japanese Benifuki tea to discover love at the first sip!
