so many feelings

 

The tea leaves that were plucked by more than 100 people on April 17 this year were stored in the refrigerator after production, and today in the morning, we did a final check to prepare them for the exhibition.

 

These leaves are filled with so many feelings.

 

 

We struggled for several days to decide on the “hand-picking day” while watching the weather forecast for rain several times a day, and we had a hard time changing the picking time from the morning of the day to the afternoon.

 

There was also the matter of the corona, and we pondered how to deal with it.

 

We wanted to share this “hand-picking” with our customers and employees, so we wanted to recruit as many participants as possible, but we had to limit it to 100 people this time.

 

Also, the employee in charge of the tea garden, who had worked hard for us for about 15 years, left the company, and it was the first time in a long time that I had taken the initiative in managing the garden.

 

On the day of the event, when I was greeting everyone in front of them before starting the hand-picking, I felt a little upset and almost cried as I remembered the work I had done in the garden and the various aspects of running the company over the past year.

 

 

As I looked back on the past two months, I named the vacuumed tea leaves and the tea boy left my hands.

 

 

I felt lonely, like a cute child going away somewhere far away.

 

But I also felt like, “Go for it!

 

I’ll be back next year

 

 

 

【For next year’s exhibition】

 

This afternoon, I spent some time mowing the grass with my employees who are usually working on sales and production for next year’s exhibition.

 

 

 

I’ve been worried about the weeds in the tea garden for a long time, so I felt refreshed.

 

Next week, we’ll be spreading fertilizer.

 

 

 

Oh, I’m so busy.

 

 

 

Life is fun.

 

Thank you very much.

Work is the result

For several years, I have been supplying tea to a tea shop outside of the prefecture.

They blend our tea with tea from other companies and prefectures, and sell it as a single product.

When I talked to the president of the company, I could feel his strong desire for quality. I admire him for his hard work in purchasing and blending the products.

So, the other day, when I asked him about a certain tea that we offered as a sample, he said, “Mr. Kuroki, can you roast it a little?

He said, “Mr. Kuroki, the roasting was a little weak, so please show me the roasted tea again.

He said.

He said, “What?

I thought to myself as I reviewed the processing chart of the rejected tea and tried to drink it.

“Hmmm ・・・・. It’s definitely not very fragrant.

The temperature should have been higher, the aroma should have been better, and the tasting should have confirmed it…

A few “hazards” piled up.

But when I drank it, I found that the tea lacked a little bit of aroma as the customer pointed out.

Work is the result.

It is said that the factors of what is called “failure” in work are assumptions and lack of information.

That and conversational errors also pile up in the world.

This time, it was an assumption.

“I tried so hard, I tried so hard.

is something that goes back to elementary school sports and studying.

I’m grateful to the person who asked me to resubmit my work, but I didn’t just shut down and cut a deal.

This is not Corona’s fault or anyone else’s fault.

We just have to get the results!

Miyazaki Sencha, the popular tea used in international first class flights, is now available at home.

High quality “Miyazaki Sencha” tea bags have been offered to international first class passengers for two years since 2015 and again since September 2019.

 

We paid attention to the type of roasting machine, the blend ratio, and the way the tea leaves are chopped to create sencha tea bags that taste as good as if they were brewed in a teapot.
Even in tea bags, the original taste and quality of sencha tea is very popular among customers.
