With the trip to Japan but a distant memory, it's time to reminisce and share what wonderful experiences I had while there.

Very much a standout was the tea farm visit in Uji. Uji is a quaint town about 20 mins by train south of Kyoto (if you were travelling to Nara you would pass through it)

In Uji you can wander through a street called Byodoin Omotesando and literally smell the aroma of Matcha Green Tea in the air ahhh!

But more on that another time!

The main reason for visiting Uji was to meet the family behind the Tea Farm our Premium Matcha is sourced from and witness Ichibancha (or first harvest) that takes place in May each year.

Such beautiful words and you can also find a great video demonstrating how to make Matcha using a traditional bamboo whisk.

 Superb!
