Especially when there is no special window/place to grab a sample :)

This video also makes me wonder again, how the price of tea is formed. Relatively high salary + taxes + big electricity bills (and this is sure not cheap in Japan) + need of expensive machinery + tea doesn't grow by itself. :shock: Sure i'm glad that even quite good tea has low enough price, to drink it every day :)

its about a sencha farmer in kyushu. i really like how he talks his tea is like his children and how the fresh tea tastes, i really want to drink tea then.

Also a very interesting point in the documentary is, that he decides upon the harvest he gets how long the steaming will be.
Because on most japanese green tea sites they say tea maker decide it upon what customers wish and he says its the tea decides it. At least if i remember the documentary correctly.
