  • Description

Our Deep Sea Aracha is a green tea from Yakushima Island in Japan.  Aracha is a unrefined tea that would be sorted, graded, and used to make another kind of tea like sencha.  We decided to offer the aracha instead of a finished tea because we find the unrefined tea has a more complex flavor and deeper color. 

This tea has a deep flavor and is unlike grassy/leafy green teas.  The smell of the tea is reminiscent of cooked spinach.  The tea taste like cooked spinach and seaweed with a very pleasing sweet aftertaste.  This is a good tea for people who are looking for a nice umami/savory Japanese green tea.

Each packet contains 100 grams of tea.

To brew:

  • Use around 4-6 grams per 200 mL (7 oz)
  • Use water that is just below boiling around 80˚C (175˚F)
  • 30 seconds per steep
  • Steep up to 3 times (or more)

These brewing instructions are just guidelines.  If you like your tea stronger; feel free to add more leaves, brew with hotter water, or steep for a longer time.  Same goes if you like your tea lighter.  I generally like to increase steeping times slightly after each steep.  Everyone's taste, teaware, and water is different so use these guidelines to find what works best for you! :)
