This year Akky, President of Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms, is also hand rolling tea and submitting it to a tea competition where it will be judged and bid upon.
Visitors and Obubu staff helped to pick the tea leaves for this batch, and Akky with his team of farmers spent the next 8 hours expertly rolling.
In past years, the Kurihara farmers have placed 3rd nationally for their handrolling. Can Obubu best them this year???
