【Plan 16】 Tea-Picking Experience Come try picking and making tea, as well as taking a factory tour



Tea harvesting plan which was very popular in the last spring edition. “Fresh sprouts tempura” is also back this year!

The new tea season has arrived! This is the only place in Chiba City where you can experience tea harvesting!

Limited to 60 people! Now only including fresh tea leaf tempura
Tea harvesting, tea making, and factory observation

Experience harvesting fresh tea, which is a rare chance in Eastern Japan, in Chiba. Try making your own original tea leaves by roasting the leaves on a hot plate after harvesting them. After learning the different ways to make delicious tea with each kind of leaves, enjoy the tea you made yourself with some sweets. After enjoying your tea, observe the tea-making process in the factory. You can also eat tempura made from fresh sprouts, which was very popular last time♪

In the factory you can observe the various processing of harvested tea leaves including “gathering”, “steaming”, and “crumpling”

An exciting extravagant taste you can only enjoy during this period!

You can enjoy Japanese sweets with freshly harvested tea. Goes perfect with the tea! Fresh sprout tempura is a mildly bitter delicacy with the taste of springtime. You should try it once!
