Japan. Travel futures and logs!

Culture, language, tangibles, intangibles from countries known for tea. China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, India, etc...

Yesterday we did indeed get to Obubu Tea Farm for their tour, and it was a delightful adventure, start to finish....although there was a little frustration due to a missed and then a canceled train, so we were quite late, but they were amazingly accommodating and make terrific tea, and my tea stash to bring home is now quite satisfying, even before a planned excursion to Uji and the Tsuen Tea shop itself—nearly a thousand years of tea on the same spot, and the source of my favorite ‘Aoi’ sencha from O-Cha. Now to the source.....although I doubt it can beat the floral and delicate and marvelous Spring Sun Sencha or the Kabusecha Sencha from Obubu.

More later, when I can pull together notes from other sources on my computer. Typing on my Bluetooth keyboard is easy, but cutting, pasting, and collating is not.
