Matcha Green Tea
The Origin Story
We’re pleased to introduce a very fine grade of Matcha that you simply won’t find anywhere else. Deliciously sweet and deep in flavour, its vivid and forest green colour is the result of a few important quality factors, such as:
The unique cultivar & single origin. Most Matcha green tea powders are rendered from blended Tencha leaves, to achieve a balance of flavour. Ours, however, already has all the clear character it needs to be exceptional, made from theOkumidori cultivar.
Using the finest Tencha base leaves, shaded carefully during growth to evoke rich, green chlorophyll.
It’s supremely fresh – we only mill small batches to order – we recommend keeping it within its airtight tin in the refrigerator.
Organic agriculture. The farm is in conversion to organic standards and this gives the best of both worlds: control of agrochemicals and high quality expectations.
Kagoshima is a major tea production area in Japan, producing some of the earliest picked teas each year
Our Matcha is produced in Kagoshima, in Kyushu, in the far south of Japan. The area is overlooked by Sakurajima, an active volcano which periodically covers the area in ash, making the area extremely fertile. As the farmer had no established route to market for his tea, we worked with a partner and the milling was done in Uji, Kyoto – home to the highest quality Japanese matcha mills – then packed immediately into air tight tins. The milling is done in the traditional way with a mikage stone mill.

Matcha Green Tea
I've tried a few different matcha tea's and this is by far and away the best one I've tasted. It is a smooth drink with no hint of bitterness like others I have experienced. I simply love it.
