Experience a range of programs – from picking tea leaves to roasting leaves to brewing the perfect cup of green tea – at the school’s five family-operated tea farms – Sayama Farm, Okutomi Farm, Yokota Farm, Nishizawa Farm and Ikenoya Farm. International guests are welcome and anyone can participate, even if they have never had a sip of green tea.
