Tips for Tea
In one of the previous editions you have learned that water temperature is very important for green tea and boiling water is often not recommended. Hot/warm water, though, is not the only choice for steeping tea. To tell the truth, tea can be steeped with water of any temperature, even ice!

What you will need for ice steeping is a glass jug, 8 grams of green tea leaves (Kabuse Sencha recommended), about 10 ice cubes and a small filter over your cup. Place dry Kabuse Sencha leaves in a jug and put ice cubes on top of the leaves. Leave it sit in room temperature and wait until ice melts (depending on what kind of climate you are in it might take 1 hour or a bit longer). Ice melting time is tea steeping time, so tea is ready when ice melts. Filter the liquid from the tea leaves and enjoy the essence of tea!

Events of the Past Month - Tea Making with Children from Disadvantaged Backgrounds

Because of a mission to revitalize interest in agriculture and spread attraction to tea in Japan and abroad, every year Obubu organises a lot of tea events. One event, though, is a bit more special. It is one of Obubu’s social programs - an annual tea making event with children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The event has been held 4 year and every time gathers more than 25 children from a nearby correctional facility. In their teens, ages between 14-16 years old, some of these children may have committed petty crimes, some may come from criminal families with imprisoned caretakers. At the young age, though, the life has not been the sweetest for them. Through this social program, an annual event with tea, Obubu hopes to show them that there are more opportunities in life and they need to believe themselves. 

The children seem to really like tea making with Obubu, as some of them could even remember our previous intern Angie, who helped at the event last year.  This is always touching and heartwarming.
