I went to make sausages with deer meat at Umegashima

He is Matagi
 Matagi is a hunter to get deers or wile boars
He supplied deer meats

 The first, we cut meats

The meats was minced
and we added salt, pepper, harb and lemon

The girl helped squeezed lemon
A deer was on her finger !!

 The meats was filled in pig intestines

We made forms

Making Japanese Oolong tea

  I joined to make Oolong tea
with Mr.Watanabe
at Mariko, Shizuoka
tea leaves are Saemidori ( left ) and Yamonoibuki ( right )
by Mr.Saitou from Nishimata
I felt that Saemidori was sweet and frankincense
while, Yamanoibuki was green laver

He tried to make with young shoots
So, this tea was brewed with low templeture water

Mr.Niroku supported us to midnight

 and prepared a lot of delicious food
Thank you for all


Japanese Oolong tea

Oolong tea made by Mr.Watanabe at Last Autumn
About six months ago
Right was Saemidori, flower scent became deep
Left was Benifuuki, umm…
Watanabe said that the water located in the core of tea leaf immediately after making
and the water moved over the tea leaf
Let's try Oolong tea in this year !!

Pan fried tea

cold tea
from Takatiho, Miyazaki
The tea was good balance of roasting and bitter

I like Shibamoto's pan fried tea
but his tea are not good balanced
too greenish or too roasted

So, I am jealous for good tea
