Those who are interested in learning about planting, growing, harvesting, and brewing all-things green tea, including matcha tea, this tour would be a very informative and enjoyable. Definitely, more substantive than the touristy ritual tea ceremony. The staff worked hard to present lots of information. The big downside is that you have to get to the bus stop by the tea plantation and it’s not a straight forward ride. It would be good if there is a tour which meets in Kyoto center and escort you to the tea plantation for those who don’t want to deal with hassle of either driving or navigate through the public transit system. All in all a different day trip experience.

Highly recommend! Such a lovely experience. The people at Obubu tea farm were so friendly and knowledgeable. It’s a bit of a journey to get to the farm, but it’s a beautiful trip and once you arrive it’s a great four hours! We got up into the tea fields, tried nine of their beautiful teas with great information about each, had a delicious lunch and enjoyed learning about their processing facilities. A great day all around, our favorite thing we did this visit to Japan.

What a lovely day at the tea farm. I feel like we had an advanced degree in tea. Being able to taste nine teas was wonderful. We did not know all tea is from the same plant, but the differences are in how they are harvested and processed determine the type of tea. Seeing the tea plants up on the mountain was awe-inspiring. We loved meeting all of the interns that worked there from all over the world. Highly recommend this!

Sample tea from the best local tea shops downtown, visit a family-run business with a history of Japanese tea, or escape to the fields of a local Kyoto tea farm for a day during a Kyoto tea tour.
