JR East "Otona no Kyujitsu Club" February issue Niigata/Murakami/Japan's northernmost black tea This is the February issue of JR East's "Adult Holiday Club" published on the 25th of this month. I went to Niigata Murakami, the northernmost tea producing area in Japan. . . . . . . It was a cold rain mixed with sleet, but when I entered the tea garden, the setting sun was shining. A little impressed! Native species of tea tree, then tea is made. Indescribably deep and full-bodied black tea, not in Sri Lanka or India, but in the northernmost region of Japan. It is said that the wind and snow blowing from the Sea of Japan also pile up in this tea garden. Withstand it and sprout again in spring. Black tea covered in snow: Murakami's "Snow Country Black Tea". Tea food comes with tea,,,. In Murakami, there were many delicious Japanese sweets, salmon, Murakami beef, and other delicious things that I couldn't live without tea. . . I want to go again!
