There is a tiny tea garden in Osaka castle.
Actually, the tea trees have been there for many years, but hadn't been taken care for ages and were about to be pulled out.....Luckily, they are saved now! Phew!!
I helped weed the garden. The tea are still week, but weeds are strong!!
There are so many tea fruits, in which usually three seeds. This is not a good sign. It shows the tree is weak and trying to leave offspring before going to die.
Hopefully, they will grow healthier enough to make a bit of hand-rolled tea next spring!
