Video Transcript

ChaCha:
Achoo.

Kei:
Bless you.

ChaCha:
Hi Mr. Kei

Kei:
Hi ChaCha

ChaCha:
Japanese people don’t say “bless you”.

Kei:
I know. I’m Japanese, but I live in the United States.

You are sneezing.

Did you know that there is tea good for allergies?

ChaCha:
No Way!

Kei:
This is Benifuki green tea.

Benifuuki is a type of green tea that is booming in Japan.

It is good for relieving allergies and hay fever.

ChaCha:
I have hay fever. Every spring is a nightmare.

This tea was the result of crossbreeding between Indian assamica tea and Japanese tea.

Crossbreeding happened in Kagoshima Japan in 1965 but wasn't really sold until very recently.

It is also good for people with MCAD or Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.

ChaCha:
Mast Cell Acti...? Syndrome?

Kei:
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome

ChaCha:
Say that three times fast!

Kei:
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.... Mast Cell Activation Syndrome... Mast Cell Activation Syndrome...

ChaCha:
Why is Benifuki good for them?

Kei:
Benifuuki contains high levels of Methylated Catechins.

ChaCha:
Methylated Catechins?

Kei:
I’m not saying that three times fast.

Methylated Catechins are chemical elements known to inhibit the mast cell response.

Because of it, the tea can prevent allergies, hay fever, and MCAD.

ChaCha:
Ah...

Kei:
This chemical is usually very bitter in taste

but this particular tea is grown in sugarcane soil and it doesn't taste that bitter.

ChaCha:
Too Much Information My Head Hurts.

Kei:
Do you want to try it out?

ChaCha:
Sure

Kei:
It is a powder form like this.

There is also a tea bag and candy version too
but the powder one is my favorite.

All you need to do is to mix this with hot or cold water.

I use one cup of water and one 5g package.

I can also use milk instead of water.

When I use milk, I add honey or agave syrup.

ChaCha:
Ahhh… tastes good.

Kei:
Achoo

ChaCha:
You need one too.
