Tea picking

I was born and grew up in Uji, Kyoto prefecture, which is famous for tea.

When I was a child, tea trees were all over my house.

Now is the season for tea picking.

‘First tea’ is from end of April to the end of May.

‘Second tea’ is around June and July.

I drew this picture, which is the scene of tea picking.

Uji cha (tea called Ocha) is very good.
