Flavors of West Japan: part 6 (last): Mellow Monk tea growers in action

We finally arrive at the last segment of the Channel 4 documentary "Flavors of West Japan." This is the segment that features Mellow Monk tea growers, the Nagatas, who were chosen to represent all of Kyushu.


While husband Koji tends the tea fields, his lovely wife Miho shows us how to brew green tea properly.


We are also treated to sights of Mt. Aso and the surrounding hillside, which the narrator describes as resembling the European Alps. See for yourself:





This video is also available YouTube. You can also check out previous segments of the documentary.
