True to his motto “flavour is to be pursued, not defined,” Tsuyoshi Sugimoto, Director of Shōhokuen Tea is a special kind of innovator. He experiments with a range modern production and marketing methods while preserving time-honored traditions. The Kohata area where Shōhokuen is based has long been known for the superior quality of its teas. The first tea opened in the sacred Kuchikiri ceremony at Kitano Tenmangū is traditionally sourced from the Kohata region, and is produced by Shōhokuen. The company is aggressively marketing online to a foreign audience, and its possible to purchase its tea through overseas outlets. Fans of Japanese tea, and those wanting to be converted, could do much worse than take a trip down to Kohata and the heart of Japanese tea country. For this and more on Uji and its amazing tea culture, pick up your complimentary copy of Enjoy Kyoto from hotels, cafes, and tourist information centres all over the city.(日本語の文章は英文の下にあります)

「茶の味は、定めず、求めるもの」。キャッチコピーが示す通り、松北園の代表である杉本剛さんは長い伝統を守りながらも、常に時代の求めるコンテンポラリーな味を追求し続ける探求者である。創業は1645年。松北園がある木幡という土地は、もともと品質の高いお茶の産地として知られ、秋に北野天満宮で行われる「口切り式」と呼ばれる神事では、数ある壺のうちの先頭を切る「第一の壺」は昔から木幡の茶と定められ、そのお茶を松北園が提供している。海外展開にも積極的で他に先んじてネット販売をはじめたり、アメリカの小売店に卸していた。ニューヨークでは松北園のお茶をスティーブン・スピルバーグが大量に買っていったというエピソードも残っている。宇治来訪の際は木幡の茶を求めて足を運んでみてほしい。

Will the tea tasting sit down sessions be handled any differently?

Is the garden ticket needed to get into the tastings?

Hi I notice you can purchase tickets for one or both days. Will there be different activities on the days, or if only attending for 1 day can you experience everything?

Beautiful Chawan (tea-cup)

O5 Tea
Robert Stickney explaining the unique “landscape” of his wood-fired Chawan. Every Stickney bowl is one of a kind with marks left by the ashes and flames during the wood firing process. Robert biked in yesterday and brought a bunch of new pieces. Come to feel each bowl in your hand and pick your unique chawan! 🍵
