Time-lapse of Japan’s Shincha Harvest Tea

 

KYOTO, Japan

— This time-lapse video captures the beautiful birth of the 2018 shincha harvest.

A special video camera, positioned at the Nakakubo Tea Farm, advanced a few frames every 5 minutes for about 30 days last month to show us the dance of the new leaves. The digital images were then edited to create a short film.

Ian Chun, principal at Yunomi Tea Merchant, writes that “we’ve documented (possibly for the first time ever) the growth of spring tea leaf, including a view under the shading!”

The project was financed by Yunomi (yunomi.life), with the cooperation of digital marketing company Muramura LLC (muramura.kyoto.jp) and Nakakubo Tea Farms in Kyoto, Japan.

Yunomi is a lifestyle brand featuring small scale Japanese tea farms and other producers, providing tea enthusiasts around the world with a bridge into the land of Japanese tea.
