Sencha tea

I joined the tea party of Tsuchiya tea estate at Kawane, Shizuoka
Tsuchiya tea estate produces only sencha tea
Kawane is a big producing district in Shizuoka

This pic: the center area, surronded with blue nets, is hand picking tea trees
The blue nets block deers and wild boars

I had sencha tea
with sipping style
At last, tea leaves was eaten with salt or wasabi-miso

Kawane is located in mountain area
besided Ooi river

 Thank you for all

Bancha party

I love Bancha tea
Bancha tea is local tea
Goishi-cha and Awa-bancha are made in Shikoku
Both teas are post-fermented tea
Goishi-cha is lactic fermented

It is often said that pu'er tea is origin of Goishi-cha
But, I can not think so
I felt Goishi-cha very sour !!
The taste is different from pu'er tea

Thank you for all !!

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