matcha and us
The UK matcha company is proud to offer some of the finest matcha green teas direct from Japan. An award-winning range of Japanese matcha green tea with an aim to define the ultimate matcha ritual experience. Our approach is to introduce a modern perspective to the ancient tradition of the Japanese tea ceremony by preparing matcha in a minimalist way for an epicurean tasting experience, while providing education on the joys and benefits to be found in the daily drinking of this ceremonial delicacy.
The 'Uji' Terroir
The notion of terroir is extremely important for growing exceptional matcha. It defines all the natural characteristics of the environment that influence the tea. Our matcha is grown in Uji, in Kyoto prefecture, Japan, commonly known as the ultimate terroir for matcha cultivation. Uji has unique agro-climatic conditions: the soil, the climate, the altitude, the humidity and the amount of rainfall, all of which contribute to the distinctive aroma and flavour profile of a matcha that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.
With the prestigious ‘Uji-Matcha’ appellation considered by tea connoisseurs as the most distinguished and highly-prized of all, our range of matcha possesses a compelling suite of flavours characterised by ambrosial sweet-savoury ‘umami’ notes, refreshing green ‘ooika’ aromas, and a deep, vivid pine-green colour.
