We carefully source the healthiest, most nutritious and flavorful leaves. For that reason, we partner with organic tea farmers in Kagoshima, Japan. They are committed to farming processes without chemical fertilizers or chemical pesticides, ensuring that you enjoy the real taste of matcha, unadulterated by fillers and additives.

The Premium Blend was created to be sophisticated and straightforward for the straight drink; the Signature Blend was composed to be versatile for both straight and mixed drinks; the Latte Blend was designed to complement the creaminess of a milk.

Ingredients

Organic matcha leaves

Our matcha has no additives or sweeteners—only certified organic tea leaves.

Origin

Kagoshima, Japan

What is matcha?

Matcha powder is made from tencha, a green tea leaf that is shade-grown for around three weeks. The leaves are steamed and dried after harvest and are not rolled like other tea leaves. The stems are also removed.

Why shading?

Shading is a crucial step in matcha production. The limited exposure to sunlight allows the plant to maintain higher levels of L-theanine, which are responsible for the tea's savory, brothy flavor (umami). Shading also increases chlorophyll in the leaves because photosynthesis intensifies as sunlight is reduced. This results in more vibrant and green tea leaves.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    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 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.

Grown in a special place

The farms, located in the Kirishima area (literally “fog island”) of Kagoshima prefecture, are terrific natural environments for tea growth. The high altitude means fewer insects can live there, plus there’s usually a good amount of moisture in the air and plenty of sun, which help to produce healthy leaves.

冬のホット

夏のアイス抹茶はとても美味しく頂いております。出来れば冬のホット抹茶も飲みたい。やはり日本人にとって抹茶は温かい飲み物なので。次なる開発に期待して星四つとしました

ホットでお楽しみにいただくには、まず常温の水で抹茶ショットを作り、お湯や温めたミルクで割るのがおすすめです。常温の水を使うことで、うまみのある抹茶ができます。
また、専用カップにお湯を入れて頂くことも可能です。その場合は、80℃以下の(沸騰してない)お湯をお使いください。
