Autumn harvest, Japanese tea
Autumn tea is harvested from late September to early October, ending the year’s harvest time.
Autumn is the blooming season for tea trees. Pretty white flowers gradually appear in tea plantations. However, for tea farmers, tea trees are not there for ornamental purposes, but for their good leaves. These trees are therefore cultivated so that they do not bloom too much. One of the important fall cares is tree pruning. Fall pruning means the reshaping of tea trees in anticipation of next year’s first tea. As the sound of tea harvesters resounds, the tea trees are cut deeper than in the spring.
