Under the blue sky after a long absence

Blue sky after a long absence
The harvest of fresh leaves of “shuto Bancha” will proceed.

As the name suggests, this “Autumn-Winter Bancha” is a tea made from tea leaves taken in late autumn.
It is written as autumn and winter and read as “shuto”.

 

Autumn-winter bancha contains the most polysaccharides compared to other banchas and senchas, and the amount is said to be about 4.5 times that of general senchas.
This polysaccharide lowers blood sugar levels in animal experiments at Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University.
However, it is sensitive to heat, so if you want to take a lot of it, please take it out of water.

Toward optimization of cultivation management

Our home that supplies fresh leaves to the Tencha manufacturing factory “Asuka”

I have received cultivation guidance sponsored by the cultivation subcommittee, which is held twice a year.
We will discuss the optimal measures for cultivation management based on quality and soil diagnosis / cultivation history.

“Sayama Matcha Myousyou” that makes the best use of regional characteristics is progressing in this way.

Many people have seen it.

“Lunch trip” aired from 11:40 on TV Tokyo series
We will be performing from 12:20 on October 14th.
The menu is “Tea scent! Lots of pork soup”

As you know, this program is an information / travel program that has been broadcast on weekday afternoons since May 2014, and while celebrities and program staff travel to various places, lunch, popular shops, and attractions unique to that area. Introducing typical rice. And the life and story of the people who live there are drawn through “rice”.

For the purpose of improving the physical properties of the soil

Organic lime and magnesium lime were added to improve the chemical properties of the soil, as was uploaded last time …
The furrows look white.

 

Improving the physical properties of the soil this time means improving the permeability and air permeability, and improving the swelling property.
The management machine is equipped with a “subsoiler” unit, and by “deep plowing” the furrows, the physical properties of the soil are improved and the effective soil layer is deepened to create an environment suitable for root growth.

This is done during the fall (October-November), when the tea plants need to recover their roots when nutrient absorption is active.

 

However, deep plowing is only a temporary softening of the soil.
In order to maintain it for a long period of time, it can be effectively used for roots and soil improvement effect can be obtained by supplying organic matter and adding improving materials together with deep cultivation.

Organic matter on the surface of the earth, such as cut wood, does not enter the soil as it is even if it is composted.
After this work, organic matter is plowed in with a rotary type medium cultivation machine.

To improve the chemistry of the soil

 

Improving the chemical properties of soil is also called “soil improvement”.
We will check the excess and deficiency from the results of the soil diagnosis performed in the past days. The main components of chemical properties are pH, nitrogen, phosphoric acid, potash (lime), and magnesium (magnesium).
It is not necessary to be particular about the timing of soil improvement, but it is generally done before the application of autumn fertilizer.

Since tea plants prefer acidic soil, the acidity of the soil should be 4 to 5 (neutral = 7), and if the pH is 4 or less, a neutralizing agent is added.
Effective materials include magnesium lime containing lime and organic lime. In addition, it is difficult to see a shortage recently (magnesium).

At my home, some fields are filled with fossil-derived organic lime, and other fields are filled with magnesium lime of about 100kg / 10a.

For the purpose of improving the quality and products of Sayama tea

 

 

On August 4, 2021, a selection meeting was held at the Tea Industry Research Institute Auditorium for the Sayama Tea Brand Establishment Promotion Project in Reiwa 3rd year.
I had the opportunity to attend here.
This project will be held for the purpose of improving the tea making technology of the entire Sayama tea producing area, as well as improving the quality and products of Sayama tea.
This year, from the perspective of preventing coronavirus infectious diseases, the selection was based on the screening method of the Kanto Block Tea Co-Promotion Society.
The next day, an exhibition was held at the same venue.

Pray for business prosperity

I’m worried about the whereabouts of Typhoon No. 10, but I decorated it with Tanabata.

Every year, we pray for the prosperity of our business and decorate it in time for the “Sayama City Irima River Tanabata Festival”.
Since the golf competition of the Tokyo Olympics will be held in Sayama City this year, the Irima River Tanabata Festival and the Fireworks Festival will be canceled early, so we decorated it according to the calendar.

The Tanabata Festival is often held as one of the Obon festivals, and it is believed that the festival that originally prayed for a good harvest and the Tanabata legend that came from China were combined and became a custom.
In the first place, Tanabata was written as “Tanabata”, and it is said that it came to be written as Tanabata because it was the evening of the 7th that the spirit shelf and the hat were placed for a good harvest.

To bring the chemistry of the soil closer to the ideal state

 

 

Soil diagnosing is performed to investigate the chemistry of the soil for proper fertilization planning and soil improvement.
The diagnosis is made at this time when the effect of fertilization is small.

The numerical values given here are the criteria for bringing the chemical properties of the soil closer to the ideal state.

With air-conditioned clothes …

The calendar is the season of “Tsuchiuru Utemushi Atsushi”.
As the name suggests, it was a hot and humid time when the heat clung to it.

We humans are a little tired, but the vegetation is exposed to the sun, foliage grows and its greens become darker and darker.

Weeds in the tea plantations are also getting bigger and bigger.
My home where weeding with “Tedetol” is done as much as possible …

Troublesome vines require the removal of “potatoes”.
Follow the “vine”, squeeze the tea stock surface and pull out the “potato” part from the root.
At that time, it is necessary to “pull out the arm”.
By attaching this, you can cover from the wrist to the elbow and prevent scratches on the arm.

* “Tedetol” means “picking by hand” as the word implies, and refers to the work of picking pests and weeds by hand.

You can also buy it here.

Our single origin tea is now available for purchase here as well.

The 6th generation talks about his feelings for Sayama tea.
I would appreciate it if you could take a look.

Soil, machines and varieties. Only here you can make tea because it is Sayama. | Sayama City, Saitama Prefecture <Yokotaen>
