Experience Details
This Shizuoka Tea Farm Tour with Factory Visit and Tea Tasting is a no-holds-barred tea experience in a prefecture that’s famous for delicious, premium green tea. With a climate and high-quality water that are conducive to delicious tea, Shizuoka Prefecture is responsible for around 40% of Japan’s tea production and has a history of tea making that dates back to the 1200s. During this Shizuoka Tea Farm Tour, you will travel to the mountains of Shizuoka, where the air is crisp and expansive fields of green tea spread before you. You will begin with a tour around the tea farm, with dazzling views of Shizuoka’s mountain ranges from high above, and experience tea leaf picking. You will also enjoy a tasting of several varieties of Japanese tea. If the tea farmers are available, you will also get a chance to meet and speak with them. Also on the agenda is a visit to a local tea processing factory to learn more about how tea is made. Due to the seasonal nature of tea farming, the factory is not always operational. However, your guide will use a tea roaster to make tea for you whenever the factory is closed!
