Pan fried tea

Left; Tuge-cha, 告茶 made by Kajiwara at Ashikita, Kumamoto
Right; Sukkiri, すっきり made by Shibamoto at Makinohara, Shizuoka

Both tea were made in non-chemical
Both tea masters were young and repeat try and error
Both tea had flower scent and fresh

I felt that Tuge-cha was better balance than Sukkiri
and felt sore throat in Sukkiri
umm…
Thank you Kajiwara and Shibamoto

Sencha tea



I brewed sencha tea without Kyusu, Japanese tea pot
I put the tea leaves in a tea cup
and poured water at room tempreture
Then, we sipped tea 
We had tea essence

She touched the tea leaves
and said that it was very soft !!
 I didn't have that idea
Tea leaves was Iori by Suieien

 We had dinner with pu'er tea

Thank you Kaorin
Thank you Daijiro

Sencha tea

ゆたか、Yutaka
made by Suiseien
at Ryokouti, Shizuoka
 
The tea slipped into my body well
 
Thank you Daijiro 

Sencha tea

 left ; Yutaka , right ; Iori
 at Ruokouti, Shizuoka
I felt more Umami, taste of amino acid, in Yutaka than Iori
and felt blue sky and green wind from both
  
Now, I think about to get spirit of tea
I select Iori, because Iori have little Umami

And I am going to bring the mind
laurels and capsicums
from Ryokouti
Thank you Daijiro

She is the tea master of tea ceremony at Souma
Souma was suffered Tsunami large damage
and radiation damage caused
She refuged to Shizuoka

and other tea set, hanging scroll, kimono, tea wear…, leaved in Souma

 
She has Obori pottery
Tsunami washed out the kiln 
Nevertheless she has tea everyday

I and my tea friend were taught her tea brewing

and brewed own tea
My friend brewed sencha tea

I brewed pan fried tea of Shibamoto

We made Ono-kun
Thank you for Yu and all

Serving tea

 
I served Shibamoto's tea for tea sellers at the event of Tea industry association
I am not professional
So, I brewed slowly, carefully
and smily !!
I called in customers and he explained his tea
It was good that he told about tea

I had rest with his tea at the backyard
Thanks Shibamoto
