thank you for your support of this passion project. it has been a heck of a journey thus far -- one for which i am entirely grateful.
thanks for stopping by!
"after moving to Japan in 2018, i fell in love with Japanese tea.
since then, it has been my mission to bring Japan's best matcha to the USA borders.
most of the best matcha teas in Japan never leave the country.
so most people will never be able to taste it.
that is sad.
i wanted to create an access point for you.
an access point where you could taste ultra-premium ceremonial matcha for yourself.
well here it is. here is that matcha:
the master's supreme ceremonial matcha.
i dig this matcha. and i think you are going to dig it too."

💚 for matcha lovers, by matcha lovers.
a few reasons we love matcha
🚀 matcha is a clean energy source that keeps us going and feeling great all-day long
🎢 there are no up-and-down roller coaster of energy, there is no afternoon crash
🙃 there are no jitters
🌿 matcha is supercharged with antioxidants for immune support
🧠 matcha is loaded with l-theanine. caffeine + l-theanine = an energized calm & sharpened focus
🧘 and one of the coolest: monks use matcha to meditate longer
"when i took my first matcha tea ceremony in Kyoto, my hostess told me how samurai would drink matcha before going into battle. they would do this to clear their minds and really come into the moment -- to steady themselves. i thought this was a great testament to the power of matcha."

the finer details of this matcha
it is certified organic 🌱
it was crafted by our master tea maker using the finest tea leaves of spring
it was shade-grown for the last 3ish weeks before harvest
it was stone ground using traditional mill grinders (1 oz per hour!)
Q&A with the owner, chase:
where does your matcha come from?
we source and import our matcha directly from our partners in Japan.
no dude, like what part of Japan? specifically.
haha, great question! our matcha master sources tea leaves from two places in Japan -- the mountains of the volcanically active & fertile Kagoshima + the mountains of Shizuoka, another fertile and rich area near Mt. Fuji.
is this delicious matcha organic?
absolutely yes, this matcha is certified JAS organic.
what is JAS organic certification?
tea farmers in Japan must pass a very strict and rigorous set of rules to gain JAS organic certification. "no pesticides" is the most basic of these rules. not only must the farmer's field be organic, but so must the field of the farm next to the farmer's field, no fertilizer can be present or used. the Japanese don't mess around here. JAS organic certification can often take years to obtain.
okay, anything else we should know?
ummm... we refrigerate our matcha at all times. we encourage all of our friends to do the same. refrigeration keeps matcha fresher for longer.
how many days of matcha drinking can I get with 1 oz?
it depends on how much matcha you drink each day.
using a small 1-2 teaspoons of matcha daily would be enough to enjoy 2-4 weeks of your daily matcha.
how can I make matcha at home?
there are many ways... the easiest: grab a water bottle, add water, add matcha, and shake. that is it.
but we recommend picking up an electric stirrer on amazon. that is our preferred method: matcha + hot water or oat milk in a mug... press a button and stir it up! it's super simple.
where do you ship to?
we ship to the US & Canada. If you are outside of these regions, please contact us to see what can be done.
we love you. thank you for your support.
