This organic tea from Miyazaki reminds us that Japan also produces "black" tea (red tea in Chinese language)! Benifûki is the name of the variety obtained by the hybridisation with cultivars of Indian origin. The Benifûki contains a large quantity of methyl catechin, known for its powerful antiallergic and antihistaminic properties, particularly effective against hey fever.

 Tea and health

Red teas (often called "black teas" in Western countries) don't have the positive reputation of green, white or oolong teas in terms of health benefits, but they nevertheless have interesting properties. They contain powerful carbohydrates (polysaccharides) which slow blood sugar absorption and can help in cases of diabetes or in a weight loss diet. The antioxidants present in red teas may also play a positive role in weight loss, along the other benefits they offer, such as helping decreasing the risks of cardiovascular diseases. They relax the muscles of bronchioles, thus helping regulate and enhance breathing.  Drinking red tea is also said to help bring cortisol (the "stress" hormone) levels back to normal more quickly and might even help recover sooner after a workout. Red teas have a reputation of containing an important amount of caffeine, but they still have less caffeine than coffee. So, drinking red teas offers caffeine's benefits - alertness, concentration... - but without its more negative effects.

Très bien, clairement au-dessus du thé rouge chinois Jin Zhen que j'ai commandé en même temps, c'est délicat mais goûtu.
