What is Benifuki? 紅富貴


by Tea Kitamura November 14, 2019

紅富貴 "Benifuki" is a new tea variety that contains a high level of methylated catechin, an anti-allergic ingredient that is rarely contained in regular green tea and which is effective for allergies such as hay fever, based on clinical research results presented by the independent research organization and universities*.

The methylated catechins of Benifuki have a high absorption rate (intestinal absorption) and a high blood retentivity, and clinical trials have confirmed the effectiveness not only for seasonal allergies (cedar pollen allergy), but also for year-round allergies (allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis).

We began cultivating Benifuki in 2005 while focusing on these effects, and we are now able to deliver to your door.

 

Please note that the efficacy of reducing symptoms depends on the severity of the symptoms.
