Japan’s Organic Teas || Special Guest The Tea Crane

00:0000:00

A while back I was awoken by a message while sleeping in Japan. Turns out one of the friends of Obubu Tea, Tyas, had read that I was in the area and wanted to connect. Tyas owns the Tea Crane, an all organic Japanese tea shop and has been studying in Japan for several years. He's now a certified Japanese Tea Instructor and a Tea Ceremony Instructor in the Enshu school. Suffice it to say we had plenty to talk about!

WTP in Japan || Day 12 - Farmers Asking Questions and Cheap Souvenirs

00:0000:00

We bid Japan a fond farewell. We'll be back, it's not a place you visit just once or twice. As we depart, the farmers eagerly ask us questions, take us out to the tea fields one last time, and buy us lunch. Also, Japanese BBQ is the best thign ever and the airport stores have very nice towels.

WTP in Japan || Day 11 - Things You Thought You Knew

00:0000:00

Today I go on to clarify some of the topics from the last podcast episode as well as introduce new insights to old lessons. Turns out not all is true and what I thought was left is actually right. It's all twisty-turny but we'll make it out of this tea field together!

WTP in Japan || Day 10 - Organic Oolong Orgasms

00:0000:00

Moving from one farm to another seems easy enough until you have to traverse mountain roads and winding tunnels. Ending up in Mie prefecture lands me at an all organic tea farm. Here the practices are so different from my usual area that I have to double check my notes to ensure I'm writing the correct details. A new tea is served, friends made, and lessons learnt.

WTP in Japan || Day 9 - Spanking Your Tatami

00:0000:00

Today we learn that tossing your used tea leaves into the garbage is an unforgivable sin. How dare you commit such an act. Not that I'm judging. Best to re-use and re-purpose them as a cleaning agent.....because I've yet to see a green tea scented carpet cleaning solution. Somebody get on that.

WTP in Japan || Day 6 - Damn Kombucha, You Be Tasty

00:0000:00

While kombucha may be popular enough to line the grocery store shelves back home. In Japan, where growing tea is a livelihood, the concept of fermenting tea into kombucha is nearly unheard of.
