The Story of East.West.Matcha

Where our Matcha comes from?

Kagoshima is famous for its tea and boasts the nation's highest production per municipality. The warm climate and rich soil are ideal for growing tea leaves. The city has a wide variety of tea varieties, characterized by a deep green color that brings out the sweetness and flavor of deep steamed tea without the astringency of steamed tea.

We examine these abundant varieties of tea year in and year out to produce tea with the utmost attention to quality.

Why are we particular about organic Matcha?

Contract farms specialize in organically grown our tea made by tea farmers who have been in business for about 100 years.

Our conract garms tea has been passed down to the present day through their commitment to coexistence and co-prosperity with nature, including tea production that is particular about not only agricultural chemicals but also fertilizers (soil cultivation). We want to convey the taste of safe and secure organically grown tea to all our customers.

We want all our customers to enjoy our tea with peace of mind.
