Oisakien organizes tea picking events from the end of Apr until mid May.
I, staff Haruna, participated in the event on Apr 29!
Oisakien is a tea brand, so they don’t own tea farms. But they rent some tea farms that were abandoned because the farmers are too old to work or they don’t have any successors.
Once in a year, this season, Oisakien members and local people pick the tea leaves together in those tea farms. The picked leaves will become Handpicked Sayama Black Tea Bag and Handpicked Sayama Black Tea with Genmai and Black Soybean.
Oisakien doesn’t use pesticide or herbicide for the farms. They only trim the trees once a year.
