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.



This rich Matcha develops hardly any bitterness even in larger doses, making it ideal as Usucha or for the Japanese tea ceremony. In the mouth, a soft, very balanced taste experience is created. Vegetal notes of green tomato and fruity aromas of stone fruit and pear testify to a particularly complex flavor for the price category, which is nicely accompanied and rounded off by an omnipresent sweetness.

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.

Single Origin

Organic Certification


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 only briefly removed when needed. As a result of being finely ground, the powder is very susceptible to moisture, odour, light and oxidation. Be sure to store matcha in an airtight container. We package all our matcha in high-quality and airtight tins with a screw top. The inside has a BPA-free plastic coating to ensure that the matcha does not come into contact with metal. The tin is also placed within a sealed, flavour-protective pouch. We recommend continuing to store the matcha in the tin and pouch after opening. A better alternative, however, is to store matcha in a natsume: a small container, preferably made of cherry wood, that is both breathable and anti-bacterial.
