This product is so new it’s not even on the website before. I admit, I hadn’t heard of this benifuuki tea before. When I added it to the database I classified it as “matcha”, but I’m not sure if it is. Either way, it sure is tasty.
I’ve tried it both hot and cold. I LOVE cold-mixed matcha, but it can get a little intense if I use too much. I do not really like hot brewed matcha because it’s just too intense. This Benifuuki is both tasty hot AND cold because it’s a much more milder tea. It’s a very muted taste. I would say if you like the STRONG notes of matcha, you are gonna be disappointed. But, if you want something to put in your water bottle and drink for the day, this is not a bad tea at all. I’d say it almost tastes more like a white tea than a green tea. Maybe as it cools it tastes slightly more green with vegetal notes, but honestly it’s really tough to tell.
Another benefit is that it’s supposed to have some hay fever properties to help with allergy season? Hey man, with my allergies as bad as they are I’ll take what I can get. I’ve also been taking pollen too in hopes it will help. This year is gonna be rough.
