Tea Farm

The organic farmers' collective in Shibushi in southern Kagoshima is one of the largest and most important in the region, and it proudly carries on the tradition of tea cultivation in Shibushi, which dates back to the early 18th century. The tea fields are cultivated in a particularly efficient and environmentally friendly manner, using specially developed machinery that is only used here. Water, rice bran and high air pressure are used to protect the plants from pests and at the same time enrich them with nutrients. In addition, weeds are removed from the soil using steam. The tea farmers carefully consider whether the use of these machines is necessary at all, as the natural ecosystem should be disturbed as little as possible. In recent years, the farm's teas have won many awards, including the highly decorated Nihoncha Award, the Japanese Tea Selection Paris, and the British Great Taste Award.



When tasting, a very present noble bitterness with traits of artichoke and walnut is initially noticeable, which, however, lingers only briefly and is quickly replaced by a long-lasting, mild aftertaste. The Matcha refreshes and vitalizes with a creamy viscosity, making it ideal as a rich base for Matcha lattes and shakes. A particularly good value for its quality organic matcha.

Cultivation & Processing

The fields of our farming collective are located in Shibushi, nestled between the mountains of the southern island of Kyushu and the Pacific Ocean in southern Kagoshima. The tea farm specializes in making organic farming particularly efficient and environmentally friendly, with specially developed machinery for gentle and 100% natural pest removal. For their matcha, the farm uses Kuradashi tencha, in which the harvested tencha leaves are allowed to mature for several months, resulting in a deep, particularly mild and mellow flavor in the matcha.

Recommended Matcha Bowl

We highly recommend using an authentic Japanese matcha bowl for the preparation of this tea in order to allow for the matcha to develop its full flavour.

Recommended Accessories

To achieve the optimal texture and flavour of matcha, as well as to maximally preserve its bioactive compounds, we recommend using a matcha sifter (furui) and whisk (chasen). To accurately measure and serve matcha powder, we further recommend using a traditional bamboo spoon known as a chashaku.

Storage and Packaging

Matcha should always be stored in the refrigerator and should not be left at room temperature for longer than a few minutes. Because matcha is finely ground, it is particularly susceptible to absorbing moisture and odours, as well as being sensitive to light and oxidation. For this reason, ensure that it is stored in an airtight, refrigerated container. Packed in a particularly high-quality, airtight aroma protection bag with zipper and stand-up bottom. A 9-layer coating provides maximum protection against the effects of harmful substances. To keep your matcha fresh for as long as possible, store in a breathable and antibacterial matcha caddy made of cherry bark.
