A plan where you can experience with your five senses how high-quality matcha is produced in Nishio, a major matcha production area.

At Aoi Seicha, a long-established store that manufactures matcha from tea leaves, you can visit the manufacturing factory where tencha (the raw material of matcha) is ground with a stone mill to deepen your understanding. Finally, you will have a casual matcha experience using "Nishio matcha" (experience making and drinking matcha yourself) and hearing about the tea ceremony from the guide. You can also eat Japanese sweets with matcha. Let's learn the heart of Japanese tea while tasting the deliciousness of Nishio's matcha.
