Tips for Tea

Every tea has a unique taste. But has it ever happened that you tried tea at a producing country and when you brought it home it tasted somewhat different? A lot of it depends on how you make it, but also on what water you use.

An experiment of our English Tea Party team at Teatopia Festival at the beginning of November showed, that both tea flavor and colour depend on whether you brew it with hard or soft water. Brewing tea with soft water results in a stronger sharper flavour as well as brighter clearer colour. Hard water gives it a darker colour as well as lighter and more blunt flavour.

The saying goes that tea tastes the best with the water from its own land. We have it soft in Japan. If you can get your hand on soft water, try making tea with it and tell us if you notice any difference and which you like more.

Meet Obubu's Friends - Charo & the Spanish School of Tea

Who are you and what do you do?
 We are the brand new Spanish School of Tea. There are four of us and it was our love for tea, what brought us together. Our challenging mission is to introduce Spain (non tea-producer and traditionally, a coffee and chocolate consumer) to the exciting world of tea, so that anyone can enjoy as much as we do its aroma, taste, healthy properties, history and spiritual dimension.  
How did you get to know Obubu? It was me, Charo, who contacted with Obubu two years ago when I visited Japan. I'm in love with your country and besides my favourite teas are the Japanese ones. Therefore, for me, it was a must to visit a tea farm at Uji, where the finest teas are produced in Japan. I couldn't let such an opportunity get away and I started to surf the net till I learnt about Obubu farm. It seemed to be what I was looking for, and I decided to spend a whole day with its team.
What is Obubu to you? When I dropped by Obubu, I hadn’t got to know my current partners yet, and my intention was only to see first-hand what an Uji tea farm was like, to learn a little bit more about Japanese tea, to attend a tea tasting, also to buy a bit of tea and, needless to say, to have a nice day accompanied by my dear old friend, ‘Tea’. However, I had the surprise of my life when I was showed Obubu's project. Obubu exceeded largely my expectations and I felt so pleased with its initiative, that I decided to follow you thanks to your newsletters and, it was by so doing, that I learnt Spain has been included within 2014's Europe Obubu tea tour and I contacted Matsu-san and Simona-san on behalf of our Spanish School of Tea to take advantage of Obubu's tour, so that we could meet each other in Barcelona and suggested Obubu a visit to Madrid next year, where our headquarters is located, as part of 2015's Obubu's Tea Tour.
What is your favorite way to make tea? I'm so keen on tea, that I enjoy all kind of varieties. Anyway, if I have to opt for one, I select an Obubu kabuse in cold water. I still can remember rightly first time I tasted it. It was Matsu-san, who took a cube of ice and put it on a bit of Obubu's kabuse. When he offered us a cup of it, I felt so excited, because its taste was so intense as its aroma. It was an unbelievable discovery for me and since then, I've been sharing such knowledge (and also its associated pleasure) witch each a every person, who let me teach him the little bit I know.
What message would you like to pass to Obubu readers and friends? Obubu's project itself promoting Japanese and Uji tea and also those products based on tea, as well as its special way of teaching, letting each and every student focus on those aspects and areas of tea knowledge, they are more interested in, so that they can create their own professional profiles, is a model for us in Spain. Obubu allows anyone to enjoy and learn all at the same time and that’s the secret of its success, because all its team members feel they are part of this project and give the best there is inside them.
