Tasting delicious tea in the season of new leaves (shincha)!

Tea Museum
It is said that for cultivating delicious tea, steep slopes, clean water, large daily temperature differences, and a number of other conditions are necessary. Blessed with such conditions, Yame City in the Chikugo area of Fukuoka is the producing are for Japan's leading high-class tea, "Yame-cha".

This time, we headed to Hoshino-mura (Hoshino village) in Yame City, which is lauded as the top producer of high class tea, "玉露" (gyokuro), a type of Japanese tea that is produced using special techniques. With Madecor, who had come to Japan in May (the season of new tea leaves), we visited the "茶の文化館" (Cha no Bunkakan / Tea Museum), where we experienced the charms of tea from various angles. Also, we relished "all sorts of tea" menu! Please be sure to come and taste Chikugo's delicious tea!

Madecor ordered the "gyokuro" curry!

MadecorMadecor: At first, I felt that the tea was bitter, but in drinking it a few times, I came to appreciate its taste. The last time I came to Japan, I observed a tea ceremony, but I only watched from afar. This time, I was able to experience the tea ceremony myself!
