The Finest Tea Leaves from Fog Island
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.
20g organic, single-origin whole tencha leaf
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.
While both the Okumidori and Premium blend are excellent for drinking straight, they have different standout qualities. Okumidori is subtle but complex and umami sweet. The Premium blend is more delicate and umami-bold.
