Nowadays I don’t go out as often because of the pandemic, so my allergies have improved.
But I still have symptoms every now and then. That’s why I like to drink a powdered Benifuuki green tea, which has a a high amount of methylated catechins.
Fortunately, I received this sample from Wakoen. I had already ran out of this type of tea.
Let’s drink it
The aroma is sweet and vegetal, it feels very fresh.
Its appearance is normal for this type of powdered tea, a pale green color.
I decided to use 1.5 grams of tea and prepare it with 120 ml (4 oz) of boiling water.
This way the taste is stronger. If you would like a softer taste, I recommend adding much more water.
So all I did was to mix it with a spoon.
It has some astringency and bitterness. This happens in all the Benifuuki green tea powders that I’ve tried.
However, their intensity is lower than I expected. It must be a good quality tea.
I also notice that it has body and a sweet aftertaste. It’s not hard to drink.
I’ll be enjoying this green tea often until I run out of it again.
