We had an awesome time with Akito visiting tea plantations in Shizuoka🌱 Akito shared his love of tea with us. He brought us to places we would never have been able to access and the tea farm was absolutely beautiful with a view of Mt. Fuji✨He brewed many different types of green tea from the farm.

My mind and soul went to a state of peace and quiet. It was like I regained 5 senses I neglected in a fast paced society. I’m going to prioritize a time to enjoy a good cup of tea 🥰

 

This tour is perfect for tea lovers, mountain lovers, and anyone who’s interested in a way of life outside big cities. Definitely recommend this tour🌱🌱🌱
