Unfortunately, we are forecasting unseasonable weather on 6th September, so we will postpone holding the full moon tea ceremony on 6th October. We are informing it to those who applied for participation.
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.
Do you know what it is? You may say it seems it is kind of fruit. Right. This is a seed of Japanese tea.
There may be encounters with the full moon tea ceremony held in our tea plantations.
Today, we had a meeting of the full moon tea ceremony held on 6th September.
As the name suggests, the full moon tea ceremony is an event where tea ceremonies are held at the tea plantation of the Miyazakien, on the evening of the full moon when the moon, the earth and the sun line up in line. You can experience tea picking in the tea field or have tea at the full moon tea ceremony stage. In addition, performance of the erhu, the koto and the violin participate with the ceremony. You can also appreciate the dim sum of the restaurant “Ichimasu”.
It will soon become quorum. If you are interested please apply as soon as possible!

We are now preparing pinch hitter products such as shaved ice until the raw material of soft cream arrives. Of course tea items such as Sencha Tea, Hojicha Tea, Green Tea etc. can also be bought at the store.
We are waiting for everyone.
As humid and humid days continue, we are sure everyone is fine and well.
In the last week at the Miyazakien, we harvested the tea leaves for the Japanese black tea at the evening of the full moon.
We make the Japanese black tea with locally grown tea leaves cultivated at the foot of Mt. Hongu in Aichi Prefecture. The sixth generation representative of the Miyazakien, Atsushi have developed it with the cooperation of many people. “Mikawa Wa Kocha”, the Japanese black tea is almost finishing well this year.
“Full moon tea” using special tea leaves harvested on the full moon night, will be used at the tea ceremony in September at Miyazakien.
It is only tea garden if you look around.
Construction of this stage began in March, but the plan to make a new stage of the full moon tea ceremony was being considered for several years.
In line with the idea of live on nature as the concept of Miyazakien, we have asked to get some advise to various people in the past to prepare facilities that can enjoy tea ceremonies in our tea fields. And the result has been gradually becoming shape.
At last, the appearance of the stage has appeared in the field. Tea leaves are sprouting now, the life has been nurtured in the field overlooked from the stage. In the field of the native species “Hongu” used for our Wa Kocha, the Japanese black tea, the individuality of the tea tree has appeared and the young leaves are mottled, but this appearance is a landscape that agrees well with the philosophy of the Miyazakien.
Today we started to sell our Full moon Tea at MITSUKOSHI Hoshigaoka.
