Searching for matcha tea of the highest quality is like a treasure hunt. There are only a few of the matcha farmers that over many generations learned how to cultivate matcha in a sustainable way.
We’ve traveled to Japan many times and sampled matcha from different regions, farms and harvests throughout Japan. We have sampled more cups of matcha than we can count. We’ve eventually made a selection for Matcha Moments what we believe to be the finest matcha available in Europe.
During one of our trips in Japan, exploring new tea-growing regions, we’ve discovered a small community-run tea farm that has been cultivating matcha for hundreds of years. Their passion for quality matcha and generations of matcha expertise, in combination with the ultimate terroir and ideal weather conditions have resulted in matcha of the highest possible grade.
Sourcing our matcha for Matcha Moments™ directly from this community and in close collaboration with the local tea growers allow us to make an impact:
The production of matcha is a mix of science, craftsmanship and art.
Science because it is difficult to grow and protect the harvest, craftsmanship to refine and store the leafs, art because it requires a team of experienced artisans and tea sommeliers to craft the perfect blend of our mellow, full bodied matcha with sweet umami undertones.
Our farmers have kept ancient knowledge, handed down through generations and apply the latest techniques to continuously improve their production.
