Tea and Thee

Women pick tea leaves at the Moriuchi Tea Farm (森内茶農園) in Shizuoka City, Shizuoka Prefecture ~ Japan produces aproximately 100,000 tons of green tea per year. From late April to early May, tea farmers handpick Shincha (新茶, "new tea"), the first tea of the year, which is usually considered the highest of quality and most sought after. Shizuoka Prefecture is Japan's largest tea producer. Shincha is the first tea brought to market each new season. The tea farm of Mr. Yoshio Moriuchi in Uchimaki village, in famous Honyama area (northern area of Aoi ward in Shizuoka city), has won many gold and silver medals in tea competitions for his tea.

More than simply putting flowers in a container, ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of particolored or multicolored arrangement of blooms, ikebana often emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line, form. Though ikebana is a creative expression, it has certain rules governing its form. The artist's intention behind each arrangement is shown through a piece's color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the usually implied meaning of the arrangement.
