come for tea

As the cool, crisp days of autumn turn colder and winter seems close at hand, I find myself happily anticipating and eagerly planning for the events I will be part of these last two months of the year. The first days of November will have me at the premiere Chicago International Tea Festival. In addition to teaching a class about teas every tea lover should taste, I’ll be speaking at the festival’s afternoon tea and participating in a special breakfast event. While advance registration via citfest.com is certainly recommended, admission tickets for the festival will also be available at the door. (Tickets for the classes and special events are, however, first-come-first-served.) I hope to meet many readers of TeaTime at the festival, so please come by our booth and introduce…

tea made in the sand

Japan’s method of growing tea under shade is unique. Since 1835, this cultivation technique has been used exclusively for exceptional (and expensive) green teas, such as gyokuro and matcha. The practice produces teas that yield a soft yellow-green liquor with low astringency and rich notes of umami and asparagus—exactly the highlights contemporary green-tea connoisseurs desire. I recently visited a small family-owned tea garden in the prefecture of Kagoshima on the southern island of Kyushu. The long rows of tea bushes were awakening under a warm spring sky. Having been raised on a farm, I know healthy plants when I see them, and I’ve never seen more vibrant tea plants than those at the Sakamoto Organic Garden. That’s where I met tea master Shuichiro Sakamoto, whose family has grown tea for more than…
