This years production was made solely for UNYtea and i could be more proud to present this stunning white tea made from a very old cultivar.The Benifuki cultivar was originally developed for Japanese black tea production known as "wakocha." Benifuki Black is known as a "medicinal tea" that is excellent for the sinuses. Though I have yet to test this medicinal effect, I am intrigued nonetheless. I can see some flavor note similarities between the white and black versions of this tea, but i think the white takes the cake.
