IMPERIAL SHIZOUKA ARACHA
2 oz. bag
Kakegawa, Shizouka, Japan / May 2020
Aracha means unrefined and is used to describe this tea as it contains all of the parts of the tea plant, including powder and stem, which produces a different flavor than if those were removed through sorting. The resulting tea provides a great experience in learning more about processing and how the addition of stem and powder can influence the taste.
light-bodied / lightly grassy / clean, floral astringency / lingering aftertaste
