Discover a new way of drinking tea.
Tea prepared with a mortar.


Marushiro’s tea plant is situated in Kagoue near Shizuoka Station and the city center. Mr. and Ms. Shirotsuka have processed tea grown at their farm in Uchimaki along the Abe River and distributed it mainly outside the prefecture for over 40 years. They hope that people will learn that tea is not limited to sencha and drink more tea in different ways. Visitors can have a close look at traditional tea processing tools which are rarely found today.
