At the 13th Annual Japan National Black Tea Summit

November 03, 2014

Hello everyone.
Creha is open from 1pm today.
Please stop by our shop if you have time.

The 13th Annual Japan National Black Tea Summit ended and our owner Okamoto has returned from a business trip to Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture.
Next year, the summit will be held in Shimoda city, Shizuoka Prefecture. If you are interested, please write it down in your calendar “National Black Tea Summit on November 1st and 2nd”.

Recently, we have been tasting water that is to be used at our new shop.
However, some water is high in mineral, and looking for the perfect balance between hard and soft water is not as easy as we thought… we haven’t been able to find the right water.
The tasting session will continue.
If there is any water that you recommend, please contact Creha and let us know.

It’s the last day of the holiday.
I hope you all have a great day.
