Today, the first new tea trading in 2011 was held at Reiwa Tea Market in Kitabancho, Aoi-ku!

Blessed with the weather from early spring, the growth of tea shoots is about 7 days earlier than the previous year, and it is growing well.
The first new tea transaction was also held at the earliest in history.

Since it was a corona disaster, it was held after restricting entry, but from around 6:00 a.m., tea producers, tea merchants, and JA officials in Shizuoka Prefecture began to gather, and lively transactions were held in various places in the venue, signaling the 7 o'clock hand-tightening and the starting bell.

The tea leaves traded here are passed to everyone as "shincha" through the town's tea shops.

This year, we also had high-quality tea with distinctive characteristics from each production area in the city.
