Ruling from Kagoshima to Kyoto
This vibrant matcha is the result of tender first flush leaves harvested from the pristine slopes of the Kirishima volcanic mountain range in Makizono, Kagoshima. These leaves are carefully shaded for 20 days prior to harvest, imbuing them with their unique umami flavor while simultaneously reducing any bitterness.
The young and delicate leaves are promptly steamed and dried right after harvest to retain their freshness. Once sorted and de-stemmed, they become the raw material known as Tencha, from which our velvety jade Matcha is created.
In the ancient city of Uji, Kyoko, tea master Koji Kagata meticulously stone grinds the Tencha using traditional methods, producing a matcha of unparalleled quality.
Kagata-san is a second-generation tea master with over 30 years of experience in the tea industry. He was trained in the Way of Tea by his father and is now passing on his expertise to his son, Naoki Kagata, who will continue the family legacy of producing exceptional matcha.
