It is one of the schools of the tea ceremony that we wanted to learn by all means as Miyazakien is also a tea trader.

This time, they used Miyazakien ‘s Wakocha, the Japanese black tea.

Fullmoon tea ceremony will come soon

The full moon tea ceremony is about two weeks away. Although I’d like to say, preparation is going well, Obon holiday was quickly finished preparing for organic certification, and was forced to weed out last weekend.

Yesterday we finally got a prospect of lighting, the performers came last week, talking about various preparations.

 

This is second year to have the full moon tea ceremony. The leaf you picj in this event will be used for making the Japanese black tea, Wa Kocha. In developing Wa Kocha, we tried various fermentation of various tea leaves of various periods in various ways and how the taste and scent change. As a result, what we found interestingly was using the second crop of the native species “Hongu”, it was the best to make the present tea.

Native species are weaker compared to recent tree species due to yield and disease resistance, so tea farmers who produce tea leaves and deliver them in large quantities are almost switching to such a recently developed tea tree. However, in the Miyazakien, it happened to include various species of trees, including the native species field, we were able to experiment with various kinds of trees, and now we are still improving.

茶の実の写真
Do you know what it is?  You may say it seems it is kind of fruit.  Right. This is a seed of Japanese tea.


When ripening, the shell cracks naturally, and the fruit of tea jumps out.


The condition of this tea fruit was the basis of the map symbol of the tea plantation in Japan. We often see them on the tea field, and we often see it staying on the tree of the tea.

There may be encounters with the full moon tea ceremony held in our tea plantations.

[Notice] Tea and beer collaboration, “wacochan” at the world big beer museum in Nagoya Building from 8/14

The beer wacochan using the Japanese black tea, “wa kocha” of  Miyazakien is offered from 14th to 20th of August at the world beer museum Nagoya Building Store‘s “World Beer Museum Summer Beer Fair”.

This slightly different beer, “wacochan”, was born from “Nagoya Morning College”, a place for students to learn with the concept of supporting the attractive “people” of the area.

As raw materials of wacochan, not only Miyazakien’s wakocha tea but also the MIU tomato, mini tomato of the farmer “Iida Nouen”, who also received the certification of the 6th industrialization is used. So you can enjoy the fragrance and flavour of tomato and tea.

Mr. Iida sells his MIU tomatoes and MIU tomato juice at the famous department store and his own direct sales place. In this month, you may see him from August 23 to August 29 at the Weekly Spot of JR Nagoya Takashimaya Basement 2F.

I heard that in Taiwan drinks combining beer and tomato are popular, but what kind of merchandise is the combination of tea and tomato and beer? I am curious. I am looking forward to next week’s big Nagoya building!
