Yokota Tea Farm Blog: Tea Picture Book

January 23, 2015

Last November, the first copy of a book in which we participated with the photo shoot was published from Iwasaki Shoten KK.

The book is titled “Changing forms, picture book of foods ~ how the tea is made” (「すがたをかえる たべものしゃしんえほん お茶ができるまで」, sugata-wo-kaeru tabemono-shashin-ehon ocha-ga-dekiru-made) and explains on how the “tea” we drink everyday changes its form from the start of the tea making process to a finished product that is sold to the consumers.

It is difficult to imagine how some foods are being made, but this book follow the steps of its’ process using photos.
Readers can learn the process through powerful images and playful words.

(The picture book is in Japanese only).
