This maroyaka (meaning mellow in Japanese) fukamushi aracha green tea, is an aracha because the Morita Tea garden gave it a “rough tea finish”, which basically means that the tea has an unrefined finish, processed without removing the “stems”. This tea presents you with a pleasant combination of the gentle taste of the fukamushi and the refreshing flavor of the stems. One will not tire of this tea even if you drink it on a daily basis. The tea gives a deep and profound green color.
The Morita family has been craftily blending tea for some 80 years in the Sayama region of Saitama (north of Tokyo, and one of the major tea producing regions in Japan) to develop high quality tea. As a blender, they select high quality leaves from various tea farms in Japan, and buy it as aracha or processed but unfinished tea.
