The climate is getting better and more comfortable, and in the tea town of Minamikyushu, it is a good time to cover the second tea with baron.
Information on the first tea of the season
First of all, this year’s the first tea information.
This winter was cold and blessed with a difference in temperature between morning and evening. Therefore, enough nutrients were stored in the tea. Regarding the growth of tea, it has a very good climate and is a “honest” tea that is easy to steam.
(* The length of the “steaming” time affects the taste and aroma of the richness of the tea, and the color when the tea is brewed.)
The feature of this year is that it is a tea with a taste that feels the season with its colorful and condensed umami.
And, because of the rain in the middle of April and the weather which made the summer afterwards feel, the growth difference of the variety shortened, and the short term concentrated picking time became.
(* The timing of tea picking varies depending on the variety.)
I think that the tea farmers produced delicious new tea while feeling the greatness of nature.
New tea event is also held
The Minamikyushu Tea Industry Promotion Association held an event to drink new tea together on Instagram as a PR for new tea.
From those who applied in advance, we sent out new tea, sweets using new tea, can batches created using the poster design recruited last year, etc. by lottery.
We enjoyed the new tea together over the screen. In this event, we connected the distribution with the production areas of Kagoshima prefecture, “Kirishima City” and “Shibushi City”, and promoted the characteristics and ways of enjoying each tea production area.
You can read about this live at a later date, so please take a look.
