Quality check

 

 

Quality check with the production manager.

Today, I had him drink the tea I finished.

 

 

His impression of the craftsmanship.

He can analyze the tea in great detail, and he agreed that the difference between the two teas was due to the choice of ingredients and the strength of the roasting.

Still, there are some differences in taste.

However, we both agree that we must not deviate from the company’s taste.

Next week, we will go over the two teas that he will be in charge of and the one that I will be in charge of.

We will discuss how to select the raw materials, the quality of the raw materials, the cost, the production process, and other things that are difficult to discuss with each other.

 

The other day, I received a call from a customer in the Kanto area.

“The tea I always drink tastes a little different.

The other day, a customer in the Kanto region called me and said, “The tea I always drink tastes a little different.

When I looked at the tea when it arrived, I found that what the customer had said was correct, and that the tea had a little more powdery parts due to a certain reason.

 

For a day, I was very sorry.

We had an urgent meeting with the on-site employees to improve the situation.

(The employee immediately came up with an improvement plan.)

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, one of the sales reps on the outside also said to me.

Yesterday, a salesperson on the outside also commented, “Boss, I’m interested in this product.

Yesterday, a salesperson on the outside also commented, “Mr. President, I’m interested in this product.

As a manufacturer, I don’t feel good for about five seconds when someone says that, but the person who says it also says it even though it’s hard to say.

(I drank it and confirmed that there was room for improvement.)

 

As a matter of course, we do not neglect the task of assessing the quality of each item, and carefully build up our daily work, efforts, and conversations, starting with the morning cleaning.

We also look back at our plans and implement them immediately.

 

Only then will we be able to produce tea that is gentle in taste, strong in flavor, and good for the body.

 

This morning, after taking a morning bath before going to work, I was able to reset my mind and apply a little bit of a thin, odorless skin cream to my big face (my wife made me apply it), and I was able to start the day with a lot of energy.

Collecting soil for soil analysis.

 

Collecting soil for soil analysis.

 

Just like your body, what is it lacking and what is it missing?

 

 

 

Just like going to the hospital for a regular checkup, we analyze the soil and rethink the plan for fertilizer application.

 

 

I took samples from the National Tea Fair tea garden and the general tea garden, and it is not good to use too much or too little fertilizer.

 

 

Also, is there an environment in the soil that can receive and absorb the fertilizer?

 

 

Is the tea tree itself in a comfortable and stress-free condition?

 

The best time to pick tea leaves is in the spring, when the leaves have grown to their optimum size.

 

It is also good if the production can be done according to the condition of the leaves.

 

 

Rather than doing something amazing, there is only the accumulation of steady and best daily work.

 

If you do this, you will be able to produce a tea that is good for your body and mind.

 

 

Steady accumulation.

 

 

However, even though you know the logic behind it, in my personal life, I am a 57-year-old tea shop owner who wanted to build muscle quickly and injured my shoulder by moving dumbbells too hard.

 

 

 

I’ve been steadily going to the orthopedist every week.

Mr. Nakata

 

 

This past summer, we had a visit from Hidetoshi Nakata, a former member of the Japanese national soccer team.

 

Mr. Nakata has always had a strong interest in Japanese tea and sake, and the tea industry is very happy and grateful for that.

 

 

Before his visit, I honestly thought that he would be talking about the “crap” of Japanese tea and the idealism of craftsmanship.

 

But, contrary to my expectations.

 

The craftsmen are too particular about both sake and tea, and they are not good at communicating or selling them. If we don’t improve on that, it will be tough.

 

I was told.

 

He said, “That’s right!

 

 

I think that tea shops have a difficult time communicating their business and are not good at communicating.

However, that doesn’t mean that we can cover everything by introducing SNS and web as a company.

 

This system is also a great weapon now, but I think it depends on whether or not the staff on the front lines have the earnestness and desire to make full use of it.

 

If you are a tea shop, it depends on how much effort you put into manufacturing the tea you are selling.

 

Whether it’s face to face or on social networking sites, it’s important to know that

 

“Our tea has a gentle taste with sweetness and flavor.

 

“This tea is strongly roasted and has a great aroma.

 

This tea is strongly roasted and fragrant.

 

 

During the busiest season of the year for new tea, the company nervously secures enough raw materials (rough tea) to last the whole year, and then produces it every day in time for sales.

 

Naturally, there are conflicts with the selling price and cost.

 

However, we aim to achieve the best balance between the two, and the packaging room ensures that the product is safe and secure, and the staff at stores, mail order, and delivery share the thoughts of the creator and sell it to customers.

 

The general affairs and part-time staff who answer the phone for orders also need to be able to explain the tea to the best of their ability when asked by the customer.

 

I think the people who make their own products can talk more.

 

 

Of course, there are tea shops that purchase finished products and do their best, and that is one of the correct ways to run a business.

 

However, our company aims to be a company where all the staff can talk about the tea, even if it is not efficient.

 

 

 

It’s Monday morning and I’m fired up.
