Good morning, everyone!
How are you in these days?
I would like to introduce our shop and festival in Kyoto!
Experience tea picking at Obubu Chaen in Uji city
Tea Picking Event
Venue: Obubu Chaen, Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms
April 29th, May 13th, June 8th, 2017
Japan is famous for green tea and Uji city in Kyoto is one of the most tea producing areas. If you would like to experience tea picking, this is where you should visit! Obubu Chaen, Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms, is an agricultural social venture that has three principles. They are: 1) Sending out Japanese tea to the world, 2) Enjoy agriculture and 3) Contribute to society from their tea plantation. There are mainly four different times to experience tea picking a year in Obubu Chaen.
Look at these beautiful fresh green tea leaves! Tea plants sprout tender green shoots about three times a year. Around April, the first sprouts would come out. The second sprout would be around May and the last sprout would be in July. You may feel differently in the tea plantation depending on the seasons!
Let’s join !
Experience tea picking
You can experience tea picking in Obubu Chaen about four times a year. Since skilled staff would kindly teach you how to pick tea leaves, please feel free to join the event! After the tea picking, you can make a tea by “Temomi”, a hand rolling technique, with the tea leaves you just picked! As you can wear the special clothes for tea picking, you may feel the authentic tea picking atmosphere in Obubu Chaen!
