Second tea farm visit before the 2020 harvest season

After the first tea farm visitation on the Osumi peninsula we visited tea farms on the Satsuma peninsula as well last week. 

In the background you can see the "Fuji of Southern Kyushu" Mt. Kaimondake with some cloud cover on its peak. 


Here is another plantation in a valley close by. Cultivar is Saemidori and plucking is expected to begin during the second week of April.
