I am Osamu Ueda, a new tea farmer in Wazuka, Kyoto. The size of my fields is about 200 hectares, 1/3 of which does not use any pesticides. This here is my favorite tea field.
(Panning the field.) It’s a very steep field. This is the kind of environment that produces delicious tea. More than anything, its a job worth doing, and that’s why its great!
(Displaying products.) These are all of my products, including black tea, tea chocolate, and tea soap
Note from Yunomius, we don’t sell the chocolate or soap yet due to export complexities, but will start selling the other teas soon.
So if you are interested, why don’t you contact me? You are always welcome, just contact me.
(After putting down his tea.) I am gathering people who are interested in enjoying tea farming with me in this environment.
(Yelling) I love Wazuka Town!!! I love agri (agriculture)
