Tea Info Shelf
In the past editions we have looked into how Japanese tea is grown and made. This time lets have a look into what you can do with it - Tea Latte!

Tea Latte can be made in many different ways and works wonderfully with tea powders: Sencha Powder, Hojicha Powder and of course Matcha.

You will need:
2 teaspoons (5g) of tea powder
2 tablespoons (30ml) of hot water
½ cup (100ml) of hot milk
1 teaspoon of sugar (or as desired)

Instructions: Sift the tea powder to prevent lumps. Mix the sifted tea powder with the two tablespoons of hot water to create a paste. Next, add the hot milk. Stir well. Add sugar as desired and enjoy!

What's New? - Sencha Powder

Over the last few years green tea as an ingredient in cooking and baking has become really popular with Matcha at the forefront of the trend. To respond to the curiosity and demand, Obubu has made one of the traditional Japanese teas -  Sencha in a powder form. With lighter green color and stronger Sencha-like astringent notes, Sencha Powder comes to be a great choice, for recipes asking for a stronger green tea character.

Meet Obubu's Friends - Jenny

Who are you and what do you do? ‘I’m Jenny, and I love tea’ 
After leaving Obubu last November I found a job in a specialist Chinese Tea shop in London. Full of new knowledge and an even greater love of all things tea it was a great opportunity to continue my ‘tea story’. 
I now live in Bath, a small English city full of traditional and quirky tea shops. Sadly I have been lured into the world of advertising so no longer get to work with tea on a day-to-day basis but in my spare time you’ll always find me with a tea cup in hand telling anyone who will listen my tales from Japan!
How did you get to know Obubu? After University I wanted to do something that would allow me to learn more about tea (beyond how to make a builder’s brew!). In search of a tea adventure I went on the web and was soon drawn to Obubu and their vision to take Japanese tea to the world. Without hesitation I filled in the application form and within a week was chatting to the Obubu team on skype. 
It really did seem too good to be true!
What is Obubu to you? Obubu taught me not to be afraid to follow your dreams. As my three months came to end I couldn't quite believe how much I had learnt and experienced. From teaching school children and tourists about tea, to connecting with people without language and even becoming a star on Japanese television - its safe to say I created memories and friendships that really will last a lifetime.
What is your favorite way to make tea? For me, tea is best drunk in a group, brewed in a tea pot and served with a good conversation. From the traditional preparation of matcha to a quick and comforting mug of assam - there really is a tea-time, anytime, to suit everyone. 
Tip: After a lifetime of drinking tea my Grandparents recommend 3 minutes as the perfect brewing time for English black tea - great with a plate of warm scones and strawberry jam!
What message would you like to pass to Obubu readers and friends? I left Obubu completely inspired - by the tea, the people and the beautiful setting of Wazuka. I can’t wait to go back and encourage you all to make the journey yourselves and be part of Obubu’s story. Reading this you're already showing your support for this fantastic team of tea lovers. 
So let's raise our tea cups to Obubu - and take their story and passion for Japanese tea to the world!

Events of the Past Month - Teatopia Festival 2015

When autumn leaves start turning red, Teatopia Festival comes to Wazuka town. Held for the 4th time this November, it was a wonderful occasion to enjoy and experience tea: from local and exotic teas to tea ceremony and art. Obubu team went on to offer tea spa for feet with five teas to choose from: Sencha, Hojicha, Bancha, Black tea and Mint tea. While some visitors really enjoyed soaking in and warming their tired feet and came more than once, others, confused of the novel idea, were extending their cups for tea. Overall it was a beautiful celebration marking the end of the tea farming season.
