Thoughts of Tea >>

In 2024, the water color of the tea is light yellowish green.
You can enjoy the tea from the second brewing onwards. Tea picking was done on a day with typhoon-like strong winds.
The brownish tips of the leaves on the tea leaves remind us of the strong winds on Tanegashima Island that affected the tea leaves.
