004 MEGUMI 恵, Wild & Bold Tea

¥2,500

MEGUMI means gift from nature. Deep green in colour, this is a wild and full-bodied tea with a bold taste. It is a special tea produced using the entire leaf (Aracha) which gives a distinct rawness and captures all of mother nature's goodness.


Aracha green tea is one of the most popular types enjoyed in Japan and our farmers' family (Yokota) has been growing green tea for over 100 years. Their tea was once even used to serve the Emperor of Japan.

  • Cultivar: Yabukita
  • Process: Aracha
  • Single Origin - direct from farmer
