From Yunomi

Methylated Catechins, found abundantly in benifuuki green tea, is an antioxidant that is marketed in Japan for relieving symptoms hay fever allergies. Drinking benifuuki green tea seems to work for many Japanese, so has been very popular in recent years.

Yokota Tea Farm’s recommendation is 1 gram per 100 cc of water, steeping for 5 minutes with hot water. Avoid drinking on an empty stomach as this recipe extracts the leaf’s flavor (making it bitter…which is good medicine as mom always says).

I learned about this tea a few months ago and I have become fascinated with it since I suffer from allergies a LOT, and I absolutely hate taking medicine for it. Normally I see it in powdered form but this was my first time seeing it in full leaf form. The tea is pretty normal tasting for a green tea, but it is quite expensive for what you get. I think I prefer the powder because I can control the amount and it’s easier to carry in my purse. I almost think it’s better to take the powder since you’d be ingesting the whole leaf, and isn’t that what you want to do if you want to fight allergies? Either way, this is a good alternative if you’re not a fan of powder or prefer loose leaf.

I can’t really comment on the allergy relief because it’s not really an instant thing. You have to take it several months ahead of time before hay fever season starts. I plan to do that next year to see if it helps. Apparently it’s a big thing in Japan.
