Tea Info Shelf 

In the last few editions we have talked about the wonderful components in tea, that boost our immunity and energy; and provide us with the soothing calmness. This time we will like to look at the vitamins. A wonderful bouquet of vitamins is present in the tea leaves. To start with, a cup of tea is rich in Vitamin C, that is an antioxidant with immune system boosting qualities. Remember those tiring colds - drinking tea would help to reduce their occurrence.

In addition to Vitamin C, tea leaves have a few other Vitamins, such as A and E. While Vitamin A supports our vision, Vitamin E helps to keep our skin strong and elastic. Unlike Vitamin C, though, Vitamins A and E are not released into the cup and remain inside the leaves. That is because they are non water soluble. But there are a few ways how to capture them. Matcha  is a great  way to enjoy all the positive elements in tea, because you consume the whole leaf ground to powder. Another way is to make some fun recipes with steeped tea leaves - such as Obubu's tea salad with freshly steeped leaves, a drop of soy sauce and some roasted rice as a crispy topping.

Tea of the Month
Sencha of the Autumn Moon
Made from mature Yabukita leaves, Autumn Moon is light-bodied and smooth. Its moon-like yellow liquor is accompanied by a warm cedar aroma. It has a notable astringency and a nutty floral taste reminiscent of pansy and lilac. Harvested at the beginning of autumn, Sencha of the Autumn Moon is unusual even in Japan.

Produced from the stems of autumn harvest Tencha leaves, Tsugumi is roasted in order to bring out its unique flavors.

Events of the Past Month - Autumn Tea Picking and Rolling Event

Tea leaves have grown nicely after the summer harvest and now it is time to pick them again. To enjoy the last tea of this year, Obubu held the Autumn tea picking and rolling event in September.  It was a wonderful afternoon immersed in tea flavors and aromas with 30 people from 6 different countries. And after several hours of picking and rolling the leaves everyone could taste their freshly made autumn tea. While tea picking events have ended this year, we will be holding them again next year. If you want to visit us in the meanwhile, you can still join our tea tours, held all year round.
