Organic Single Origin / Okumidori

Cuzen Matcha exclusive  |  Limited supply 


Will be restocked in Fall 2022

For connoisseurs who appreciate the ritual of tea. Single-origin Okumidori has a subtle yet rich palette of color, taste and aroma. The leaf is cultivated in the Kirishima region of Kagoshima prefecture, known for volcano-fed soil and mountains draped in fog. The leaf, when ground, makes for a vivid jade green matcha, with first notes reminiscent of the ocean, layered over a fresh grassy background and ending with a hint of smooth umami sweetness. This is an artful tea; the journey will make you smile.

The finest tea leaves from Fog Island

Kirishima in Kagoshima, Japan
Kirishima in Kagoshima, Japan

Our leaves are sourced in the Kirishima area (literally “fog island”) of Kagoshima prefecture, a terrific, natural environment for tea growth. The region's high altitude means fewer insects can live there. There is usually a good amount of moisture in the air and plenty of sun, which encourages healthy leaves.

We’re proud to work with Japanese tea farmers dedicated to high-quality organic tea production. They’re one of the small number of Japanese tea farms that are fully organic.

It'd be nice to figure how the points work or to have anyone reply to an email asking how they work.

Taste is amazing when it is freshly ground!

Honestly I thought this was kind of gimmicky. My husband kindly purchased this machine for me knowing my love for matcha. After the first use I was IN LOVE! I absolutely LOVE this machine. I now have my husband and adult children regularly getting the antioxidants that I have grown to love over the years. We all love the taste. We agree that the flavor of the signature blend is the best. I love to mix it with almond milk for a delicious latte.

I have stomach issues and started drinking matcha on the advice of my physician. After several months my stomach issues are much less and seem to have the possibility of actually going away! But not only helping with my gastrointestinal issues the antioxidants seem to be helping my overall health be so much better. I have had comments on my skin looking younger (I am 53) and I have to credit it with drinking matcha for the past few years.

I LOVE this machine which makes my match routine not only quicker but tastier too!

Thanks for antioxidants, freshly ground and delicious matcha

Hi, Eijiro
Thank you very matcha for delivering antioxidants, freshly ground and delicious cup of matcha in my own house whenever I want, through the awesome matcha machine. I'm enjoying Cuzen matcha mostly level 2 with 5oz mineral water or soda.
Thanks again !
Best regards

Why Cuzen TEA

1: Certified Organic
Only a small percentage of Japanese tea farms are fully organic; those are the farms we source our shade-grown tencha leaves from. (Tencha is the name of the tea leaves that are ground to make matcha powder.)   

2: Made for the Cuzen Matcha Maker

The size, shape and fully-roasted condition of our leaves is optimized to work with the compact ceramic mill inside our Cuzen Matcha Maker.

3: Singular Access
Tencha leaves are usually traded exclusively between tea farmers and tea companies, and not available to a wider market.

Profiles At a Glance: Okumidori Single Origin vs.Premium Blend

While both the Okumidori and Premium blend are excellent for drinking straight, they have standout qualities. Okumidori is subtle but complex and umami sweet. The Premium blend is more delicate and umami-bold.
