Specialty Tea Tour in Kyoto - farm to table experience behind the bowl (Private)

4 reviews
Matcha and tea ceremony are getting popular in Kyoto, but this tour is for the people more interested in the ingredients, where and how it grows. You can visit some historical tea stores of Uji and a tea farm in Wazuka town, and enjoy home meal together with the tea farmer, listening to the stories behind matcha bowls and tea whisks. <br>(Tea picking is available in May as a option).

Matcha... matcha everything! There are too many options to choose from on this shopping street. Be warned... you'll spend a lot!

Byodoin Omotesando at Uji was famous for green tea. There were many tea houses along the street and visitors would not miss their chance to have tea tasting and matcha ice-cream experience there. Recommended.

This road on the way to the Byodo-in has many tea merchants and unless you know which GREEN tea you want it will be a hit or miss. There is much activity on this street for it seems everyone that visits Uji uses it.

Tea shops and restaurants related to matcha are abundant here. We tried the matcha ice cream which tasted great. Bought some matcha to bake cakes too.
