Factory / Farm Visit Ureshino

Spent the morning with Yuusuke Oota san. He is making traditional tea in Ureshino, Saga. An ex-wrestler, he has a focus and work ethic that is beyond admirable. Furthermore, he is about as humble and kind a person you could meet. His range of teas include the local favorite, Tama Ryokucha, but also veers into the more unique with offerings like a large leaf bug-bitten black tea.
