Tips for Tea

One thing is how to make tea, the other is how to keep it fresh until the next cup. The greatest danger for fresh tea leaves comes from Oxygen, temperature, light and humidity. If you can reduce all to a minimum, you can keep enjoying tea for a long time (at least a year, we say). So what can you do? First thing is to keep high quality tea at a low temperature (in a fridge for example) as low temperature slows down natural chemical processes in tea leaves. Then you should keep the leaves away from the light and closed to air circulation. Keeping a bag of tea closed or putting tea leaves in a tea can with a tight lid will be helpful. If you like, you can browse through beautiful washi tea cans that Obubu offers.

What's New? - Kukicha


Tea farm activities have finished for the year and we have more time for updates and upgrades, one of which is a new tea - Kukicha! Historically Kukicha, made from tea stems, was regarded as a lower grade tea. Rising interest in Japanese tea around the world, has brought curiosity in all its types, Kukicha included. Normally Kukicha would be made from Sencha or Gyokuro, when separating leaves from stems. Our Kukicha comes from Tencha (processed tea leaves that are ground into Matcha), that has been shaded for 4 weeks before harvesting, so it is naturally sweater and more flavorful than regular Kukicha. To read more about its health benefits check this page and to explore the kinds of Kukicha Obubu has to offer check here.

Obubu takes an active role in spreading tea education. And what could be better than talking to and inspiring school kids? In November Obubu VP Matsu-san and Obubu interns Jenny and Taylor went to a school in Kobe to hold a tea seminar. Kids were enthusiastic to learn about tea and one even said he wanted to become a tea farmer! Japanese tea agriculture may still have a future ahead after all;]
