Shibamoto Oolong tea

Yabu Yagi Oolong tea
Tea leaves are Yabukita
Shibamoto made tea leaves with nunny goat named Sakura
Sakura eat the grass of tea farm
and her feces are used as compost

Today, I brewed the tea for me
I felt this oolong tea as green tea
while I felt flower scent
I could not felt flower at the time brewing for my friends

Thank you Shibamoto 


Sencha tea

I brewed sencha tea without Kyusu, Japanese tea pot
I put the tea leaves in a tea cup
and poured water at room tempreture
Then, we sipped tea 
We had tea essence

She touched the tea leaves
and said that it was very soft !!
 I didn't have that idea
Tea leaves was Iori by Suieien

 We had dinner with pu'er tea

Thank you Kaorin
Thank you Daijiro 


Sencha tea

Sencha tea

 left ; Yutaka , right ; Iori
 at Ruokouti, Shizuoka
I felt more Umami, taste of amino acid, in Yutaka than Iori
and felt blue sky and green wind from both
Now, I think about to get spirit of tea
I select Iori, because Iori have little Umami

And I am going to bring the mind
laurels and capsicums
from Ryokouti
Thank you Daijiro



I went to the meeting for victims of Fukushima nuclear accident
She is the tea master of tea ceremony at Souma
Souma was suffered Tsunami large damage
and radiation damage caused
She refuged to Shizuoka
with several tea wears and tea whisks
and other tea set, hanging scroll, kimono, tea wear…, leaved in Souma

She has Obori pottery
Tsunami washed out the kiln 
Nevertheless she has tea everyday

I and my tea friend were taught her tea brewing

and brewed own tea
My friend brewed sencha tea

I brewed pan fried tea of Shibamoto

We made Ono-kun
Thank you for Yu and all


Serving tea

I served Shibamoto's tea for tea sellers at the event of Tea industry association
I am not professional
So, I brewed slowly, carefully
and smily !!
I called in customers and he explained his tea
It was good that he told about tea

I had rest with his tea at the backyard
Thanks Shibamoto


Pan fried tea

“ Kotteri ” pan fried tea is made by Shibamoto
I am going to brew this tea for tea sellers

I believe the power of the tea


Oriental beauty

Top is the prized tea
Left explain that oriental beauty is categorized in oolong tea

 Watanabe said that we can get the prized tea with lots of money
While he interest in bring up the left tea leaves
Oolong tea leaves may change

He likes the tea that processing is satisfactory
He pay attention the water in core of leaves
He do not expect roasting

 We had many tea all night

Thank you for all
