We specialise in producing the finest ranges of Japanese matcha green tea at the highest end of the quality spectrum, or what we call ‘artisanal-grade’ matcha, from Uji, in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. What sets our matcha apart is the artisanal technique with which each batch of tea is processed – a technique that includes hand-picking only the virgin leaves from the first flush of select shade-grown tea trees and a proprietary ‘artisan roasting’ procedure undertaken to ensure that every gram is bursting with its full flavour potential. Though painstaking and time-consuming, this technique offers unparalleled results, drawing out matcha’s characteristic sweet-savoury 'umami' flavour profile in a way that industrially processed matcha simply cannot equal.
Alongside our range of matcha, we proudly present a carefully selected assortment of matcha-ware products designed through collaborative partnerships with the finest craftsmen across Japan. Every one of these offerings is individually handcrafted and embodies a unique character, formed to balance minimalist aesthetics with contemporary functionality, ensuring an optimal matcha-making experience for the modern lifestyle.
The distillation of our master tea blenders' and farmers' generations of experience, our ceremonial matcha range is hand-picked from the topmost, virgin leaves of shade-grown tea-trees during the first harvest to create outstanding grades of matcha that rival fine wines with the sophistication and breadth of their flavours. Our ceremonial ranges are ideal for brewing on their own, with warm or ice cold water, or with small amounts of milk. The higher the grade, the sweeter, less bitter, and more umami-rich they are.
