Motivated by his interactions with his customers, Daiki Tanaka decided to pen his knowledge to paper. In the first edition of "Japanese Green Tea (Practical Textbook)" readers will be introduced to the intricacies of tea farming and production.

Not only does the book take a deep dive into different tea farming practices, but it also introduces the various aspects of Japanese sencha that have till now only been available in Japanese. The text was first written in Japanese by Daiki Tanaka and subsequently translated into English by Ryhan, a native English speaker.

Both Daiki and Ryhan worked together to put forward the most accurate translations, especially with regard to the nuances and words frequently used by tea farmers. This body of text is thus composed of Daiki Tanaka’s in-depth expertise on tea, both in Japanese and English; as well as Ryhan’s experience as a Farm Production Assistant at d:matcha.
