- Start of shincha season 2019
New season of fresh tea leaves is here again! The first auction took place in Nishikyushu Trading Centre yesterday. Soon we will have fresh tea to offer. This year the mornings and evenings are still rather cold, with quite a huge difference in temperature during the day. The fresh green colour of the leaves is simply amazing.

In collaboration with Carrie from TBZM (Tea Bone Zen Mind), who visited us on several occasions, me and three other tea producers from Ureshino participated in an event at the Ritz-Carlton in Singapore. Thanks to Carrie, Ureshino tea was accepted wonderfully by the guests. Preparation of the gorgeous gourmet dinner started several months ago, with a famous chef providing ideas and Carrie perfectly matching each dish with Ureshino tea in different forms. We are thankful for this opportunity to present Ureshino tea to wider population abroad and are looking forward to future projects!
