The farm produces about 60 to 70 farms, all are pesticide-free, herbicide-free, and do not use animal mature. They hand pick each herb and process it to herb candies, skin care creams, bath additives, etc.

They said you could use two to three times by rubbing the bag. Good value for the price is also an attraction. 

“FARMER’S HERB Odori BISSE” does offer these products, too but the best seller here is herb teas! People buy herb teas from them for not only to enjoy the flavor but also to relax to enhance body and mind.

Let me introduce the three most popular herb teas here. The manager Mr. Funayama will explain about each of them. 

The third most popular flavor is “FUUGA”. 

“This blend puts lemon balm mainly, and there are no people who wouldn’t like this tea. This tea works for automatic nerves so you can expect to concentrate more but relax at the same time. 

The second most popular flavor is “Sapporo Blended Tea - with the sound of the clocktower”

This tea just started to sell in January 2018. It contains Japanese mint, Hermanus, shiso leaves, and cornflour, which is very rare and said to be loved by Marie Antoinette. This tea is limitedly sold in Sapporo only so perfect for your souvenir!”

The most popular flavor is “Okhotsk Chamomile®”.

“This is a single herb tea. Okhotsk Chamomile® is a kind of German Chamomile. We update in our farm in Kitami, where there is a 60 to 70 degrees temperature gap in summer and winter. We took a trademark as it is the only flavor in the world. It contains strong aroma, and you will feel the power of plant for sure. It is said that the tea is good for female hormone balance and sensitivity to cold, so people sometimes drink the tea to change their body conditions.

Another interesting tea is herb teas with unique colors. 

Standard herb teas are usually light yellow or green, but there are blue and pink herbs like the picture below! 

Of course, the color is 100% natural. If there is a drink with cute colors in my house, I would be really happy and cheerful.

People sometimes say that they don’t like herb teas because they are bitter or smell like grass. But it really depends on the kind of herbs and how they are blended. They offer many originally blended teas which are smooth and easy for beginners. 

Some teas are available to sample so choose your favorite one after checking the flavor and aroma! 

Keep in mind to stop by during your sightseeing in Sapporo.
