The cultivation process for Benifuuki, cultivar, was originally intended to produce black tea. The oxidizing process of making black tea destroys o-methylated catechins.
Like most Japanese green teas benifuuki has multiple flushes throughout the growing season. The level of catechins are found to be higher in the second flush than first flush. We have teas from both the first flush, Organic, and the second flush, Classic please see tea individual descriptions for details.
