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).
