Benifuuki Black

This rare Japanese black tea is quite light but complex with sweet, floral notes of fresh baked bread and plums, and a lingering milk-sweet finish.

Cultivated and harvested in mountainous Isagawa, Haruno in western Shizuoka. Benifuuki is a hybrid of the Benihomare (assamica) and MakuraCd86 (sinensis) varietals. Loosely translates as “red riches and honors”.
