One fact that many people don’t know is that 99% of all tea is machine harvested in Japan. However, every year, there is a select amount of teas that are hand-picked and rolled at the start of spring. Last year, I had a chance to be a part of it!
Last week, I had a chance to see a tea ceremony and try portions of it out! This week, I thought that it would be interesting follow that post up with the teaware used during the ceremony, as well as give some tips on whisking matcha!
As part of my trip to Japan, one thing I wanted to experience was a tea ceremony! Luck would have it that last Sunday in Wazuka, the town Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms is located in, had one! This will actually be part one of my three part mini-series on matcha.
