Our artisan tea farms have been practicing this exquisite craft in the birthplace of matcha (Uji, Japan) and from world best matcha farms (Kagoshima, Japan) for many generations; harvesting only the youngest, most tender tea leaves and grinding them into a fine powder. The result is single-origin, ceremonial grade matcha unlike any other.
Our Matcha is sourced directly from Kagoshima & Uji regions is Japan. The climatic conditions, traditions, and elevation from sea makes it have perfect conditions to grow matcha.

UMAMI FLAVOR, VIBRANT GREEN COLOR
Our tea plants are grown under the shade for at least 20 days before the first harvest (early May). Reducing the amount of sunlight the leaves are exposed to increases the natural amino acid (L-theanine) and chlorophyll content in the leaves. The chlorophyll produces the vivid green color, while L-theanine gives matcha its umami flavor.
