Experienced tea drinkers will love comparing the subtle nuances of our three Kirishima teas, which currently include Asanoka, Tsuyuhikari and Okumidori. Each cultivar is a distinctive manifestation of the region’s terroir despite the common soil and climate. (Additionally, we have Okumidoris from both Uji and Shizuoka available from our first Single Origin Box Set.) See a comparison of cultivars below.

Each individual Single Origin comes in a 20-gram canister. An entire 20-gram canister can be poured into the Cuzen hopper and stored there for up to two months. We also offer a Single Origin Kirishima Box Set, which includes Asanoka, Tsuyuhikari and Okumidori canisters. The Set is packed into an elegant kiri bako, a nail-free box made from paulownia wood. See more details about kiri bako below.


  • Individual, 20g canister: organic, Single Origin Matcha Leaf
  • Box set: three 20g canisters of organic, Single Origin Kirishima Matcha Leaf (Asanoka, Tsuyuhikari, Okumidori) in a kiri bako.

  • Asanoka, Kirishima

    Refreshing, light-bodied, floral

    Asanoka tea leaves favor the abundant sunlight of Kirishima’s mountainous region and teem with amino acids responsible for refreshing, umami notes. The tea’s bright acidity can be likened to tart cherries, but the sharpness is balanced with a light-bodied mouthfeel.

  • Tsuyuhikari, Kirishima

    Refined, nutty, mellow

    Tsuyuhikari is rare outside of Kirishima and has refined, sweet umami notes marked with nutty flavors. A sip of this tea begins with a toasted rice fragrance, followed by mild astringency that lingers on the palate and invites another sip.

  • Okumidori, Kirishima

    Sweet, umami-laden, vibrant

    Okumidori tea leaves are known for their vibrant emerald green hue and umami-laden flavor. Kirishima’s climate and volcano-fed soil are infused in this cultivar, resulting in a creamy sweetness reminiscent of fudge and a deep, vegetal aroma.

  • Okumidori, Shizuoka

    Sweet, mellow, toasted fragrance

    A sophisticated tea from high-altitude farmland. Negative ions from river fog and surrounding swamp areas allow plants to grow quickly, despite the shortage of sun exposure. The soil is full of stones, but nutrient-rich, making it fertile for cultivation. A sip of this tea begins with a toasted rice fragrance, followed by the crisp, clean notes of cool mountain fog.

  • Okumidori, Uji

    Roasted fragrance, long and slightly bitter finish

    In a beautiful, mineral-rich basin surrounded by mountains, there is a centuries-old tradition of tea-growing and processing. This Okumidori comes from an Uji style of steaming tea leaves and is fragrant with a long finish and a hint of bitterness.

Where our teas are grown

  • 1. Uji, the birthplace of matcha, boasts several hundred years of tea culture, which first began flourishing in the Muromachi era. Matcha grown in Uji is known for its signature aroma.

  • 2. Shizuoka is one of the most popular tea areas in Japan, producing roughly half of Japan's tea, primarily on small farms. The tea produced here has refreshing, clean notes.

  • 3. Kirishima is where we source most of our Cuzen Matcha Leaves. The region is an up-and-coming area for matcha, specializing in organic farming methods, which are supported by plentiful rainfall and rich soil.

Kiri bako

Kiri bako is traditionally-designed, durable and known for keeping out moisture and pests, making it popular for food storage or keepsakes. The Box Set comes in a beautiful kiri bako that can be repurposed for centerpieces, eating utensils, pencils or other items. It is also food safe and pest resistant.

  •  Single Origin Box Set, packaged in a kiri bako with a blue ribbon.
  • The kiri bako displayed as a container for cutlery, as an exhibit of one of its many possible uses.
  • A smiling farmer stands between rows of bright green tea plants, his hand gently brushing the top of a plant.

    Certified organic

    Only a small percentage of Japanese tea farms are fully organic. We make sure to source our shade-grown, whole matcha leaves from organic farmers,  because we know that when you drink matcha, you are consuming the entire leaf.

  • A saucerful of bright and deep green matcha leaves, with a bamboo scoop resting on top.

    Made for the Cuzen Matcha Maker

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

  • Limited access

    Typically, tea farmers only sell whole matcha leaves to tea companies, who in turn only offer pre-ground matcha to customers. We deliver our whole leaves directly to Cuzenists, in a state where oxidation is minimized, and health benefits can be optimized.

  • A bright green matcha latte in a white cup and saucer, next to a packet of Cuzen Latte Blend Matcha Leaf.

    A quality, fresh cup at home

    Convenient, delicious and easy on the wallet, our matcha costs about one dollar per shot, so the initial investment is covered very quickly.

  • A close photo of the dark, rich soil between two rows of tea plants.

    A nurturing practice

    We’re proud to work with farming partners who use only natural pest deterrents and organic fertilizers. They not only yield a more nutritious and flavorful leaf, they also take care of our shared planet.

I love my Cuzen Matcha! I received it as a gift and it has been my favorite gift I’ve received in a long time. I make a pure matcha tea almost every day and it is absolutely a ritual and a treat.
