Aracha, translated "raw tea", is an unfinished, Japanese green tea. Unlike other green teas all parts of the tea plant are used as Aracha is still unsorted. The liquor has therefore a stronger aroma and the color of the infusion is darker. Aracha is mostly traded at major markets where it is bought from wholesalers in order to produce blends (Blend). The individual components of the tea are then sorted by large companies and processed to the final product like Sencha, Konacha, Kukicha etc.
