SBJPG_Japan 祖母27年忌、お茶会とお茶工場周遊 27th Memorial Ceremony & Tea Ceremony and Tea Factory Tour

Early yesterday morning, I was out and about with my sister-in-law’s grandmother 27th Anniversary Ceremony at a very small Japanese Temple, had a “quick” tea ceremony (video clip coming soon!) at a nearby Tea Store, and then went onto a Tea Factory Tour all in one rainy morning! Whew!


                    Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu, Namu Amida Butsu,                        南無阿弥陀仏、南無阿弥陀仏、南無阿弥陀仏



At Wakohen, miss. Aikou greeted and treated us with super fine tea. (video clips coming soon). 和香園では、あいこうさんがお迎え、そしてお美味しいお茶会をしてくれました。別件ビデオ必視。


Before

After

Each operation day at Horiguchi Seicha takes 100,000 kilograms (about 110 tons) of fresh tea leaves that yields 20,000 kilograms (about 22 tons) of saleable  final product, so Mr. Daisuke told me.  堀口製茶で案内してくれた大輔さんによると、この工場は一日10万キロお茶っ葉を取り入れて、そのうちの2万キロが製品加工、そして販売できるそうです。

Endless Tea Field as far as your eyes can see, just behind the Tea Factory. どこまでも続くお茶畑は工場のすぐ裏から広がっています。
