In addition, a special arrangement allows you to become an owner of a tea plantation at this garden. If you apply online, Obubu Tea Garden will take care of your tea leaves and harvest them for you. They will send you the harvested tea four times a year.
As the tea can also be gift wrapped, it makes a wonderful gift idea for friends and family.
The garden also offers an internship program for people who want to learn the entire process of tea production.
Participant students from overseas have made videos about their experience.
Learning about tea production and experiencing the process yourself will surely make you see this beverage in a new light. Certainly an unforgettable experience!
