Arakai's summer green tea is quite different from their spring one, being closer to what one would expect of a more typical green tea with smooth sweet grassy tones combined with a buttery texture and green bean notes.
Sourced direct from Arakai Estate, a small family run estate estate in Australia who have only just started commercial tea production having planted their first tea plants back in 2012. Although Arakai exclusively use Japanese cultivars, they have drawn inspiration from Taiwanese processing techniques and their tea as a result exhibits unique characteristics with notes reminiscent of both Japanese and Taiwanese teas.
Arakai's dedication to producing unique high quality tea has already seen them win awards for best Australian green tea and best overall green tea and best Australian black tea in the Golden Leaf Awards.
