Meet our matcha
We're so excited to announce the launch of our new, direct sourced, fresh matcha! It's earthy & bright, and because we air freight it directly over from Japan, it is fresher than most matcha you will find. Fresh matcha = less astringency & more sweetness.
Origin: Kyoto, Japan
Farm type: Small lot tea farms in Uji, Kyoto
Harvest date: 2022, second flush
Technique : hand picked, stone milled
This matcha comes from a blend of tea leaves sourced from several small plot farms in Uji, Kyoto. The tea leaves are selected and stone-milled by a fourth generation tea producer.
A note on matcha: Matcha originated in China, where monks drank the beverage for its high caffeine content during meditations. During the 12th century, as buddhism spread to Japan, matcha was introduced to Kyoto where its popularity boomed. Now, Kyoto is the mecca of matcha production in Japan.
