Yokota-san is the farmer of our MEGUMI wild & bold Japanese green tea. He has been cultivating green tea his whole life continuing his family’s craft that has a 100+ year heritage.
Yokota-san himself is at least a 6th generation tea grower. The family documents were unfortunately burnt 100 years ago so the heritage is likely much longer.
Yokota’s Aracha Green Tea is a special tea produced using the entire leaf which gives MEGUMI a distinct rawness and full-bodied taste. Yokata-san believes Aracha tea is the perfect wake-up call in the morning and helps avoid any unfortunate events in the day.
The Yokota family farm is renowned for producing premium green tea and their tea was once used to serve the Emperor of Japan.
