歷史記憶:20 世紀初期日本靜岡縣的茶葉生產過程


This dedication makes you appreciate a simple cup of tea all the more.
這樣的敬業精神,讓你體會一杯簡單杯的茶得之不易啊!


In the early 1900s, photographer T. Enami documented the stages of tea production in Shidzuoka, Japan. The colorized images are a fascinating look at the past, depicting the long green tea-making process from its very beginning to end. From these photographs, it’s clear that the workers took a conscientious approach to all their tasks.

在20世紀初,攝影師江波記錄日本靜岡縣的茶葉生產過程。彩色的相片讓人著迷著過去的歷史,描繪了綠茶從一開始到結束冗長製作過程。這些照片展示了製茶工人一絲不苟地心情,專心在所有的工作上。


The pictures were unearthed through the Presbyterian Archives Research Centre New Zealand. On their Flickr account, they showcase Nobukuni’s detailed images. Green tea production started with field workers picking tea leaves and placing them in giant straw baskets worn around their arms and on their backs. Afterwards, men would dry and roll the leaves. The tea was later sifted, refined, and sorted—by hand and via motor power—and later fired (and refired) in large pans. Women then went through the leaves, picked out any sticks, and packaged them in paper bags, which eventually made their way onto a shipping boat for sale.

這些老照片是通過新西蘭長老會檔案研究中心取得,他們在Flickr上展示Nobukuni詳細的圖片。綠茶的製作過程:工人採摘茶葉,把它們擺放在手上或者揹負的竹簍中。男性製茶工人會翻動茶葉,由專人進行篩分、細化、分類,再到大型燃煤蒸鍋。在經過女性製茶工人挑枝、裝袋,最後包裝作出成品運輸船到各地出售。
