An aracha (unrefined green tea) from the famous Kakegawa region in Shizuoka Prefecture. Because it contains all the parts of the tea leaf, such as broken bits and stems, you can enjoy a different flavor than the Sencha it would become if refined. If you usually drink Sencha, trying an aracha may open your world of Japanese tea! The Dobashien tea company recommends trying at least once.

In 1892, Dobashien's founder Tetsugoro Dobashi established a small tea shop in a quiet residential district on the outskirts of Tokyo. As the city expanded, the area known as Akasaka-Mitsuke became one of the city's elite districts with ryotei, luxury Japanese restaurants, hosting meetings between powerful politicians. At these ryotei, only the best tea leaves from Shizuoka and other parts of Japan are served.
