Making room for the practice is the practice.
We strive to honor traditional Japanese practices of nourishment and meditation through matcha, while planting seeds of intention for the next generation.
From leaf to powder, our matcha is 100% traceable and cultivated by a 7th generation family of tea masters. Subscribe to learn more.
Exposure to sunlight decreases this component and increases catechins causing the leaf to become more astringent and bitter. In general, tea leaves that have more umami are considered higher in grade, this is why we chose the highest grade: Ceremonial Grade Matcha.
Only the topmost, youngest pair of leaves on the very top of the tea plants are handpicked to produce premium matcha in a laborious method called Niyou Tsumi (two leaf picking), making it electric green in color.
Once handpicked, they are de-stemmed, de-veined and then steamed to preserve the color and nutrients, and to stop the enzymatic action within the leaves, then thoroughly dried with heated blowers.
Before it even gets to powder, matcha is sorted for grade (with the youngest, greenest, most tender leaves earning the highest marks) which is ours!
The leaves that make it through the rigorous process of destemming and deveining are called tencha and of course the quality of tencha varies widely.
As a powerful adaptogen, ashwagandha enhances the body’s resilience to stress by improving cell-mediated immunity.

Coconut is highly nutritious; it contains several important minerals and some B vitamins. The powder is made by grating or shaving the meat of the coconut and grinding to a powder.

Compact sifter fits over just about every bowl or cup. We also include a sustainable bag so that it’s easy for you to travel with your teaware.
Simply place over your bowl or cup and with the back of your bamboo scooper (chashaku) begin to sift the powder breaking up any clumps.
It’s quite common to find small clumps have formed in your matcha powder tin. Natural static electricity, moisture, and the powder’s own weight when it is left to sit for long periods of time may case clumps.
These clumps truly make it difficult for your matcha to be whisked properly and the taste smooth.
Takes 2 seconds, we promise.
Notes on wellness
Caffeine without the jitters
Shading of our plants during the growth period enhances the processes of synthesis and accumulation of biologically active compounds, including theanine, caffeine, chlorophyll and various types of catechins.
Thanks to shade-growing, matcha tea also has increased chlorophyll content, which is responsible for its unique vibrant color. Chlorophyll and its derivatives exhibit strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

The average cup of matcha has around 60 mg of caffeine, and regular green tea has even less, while the average cup of coffee sits between 90 and 150 mg. This is only part of what we mean when we say caffeine without the jitters (a harmonizing stimulant).
Matcha is incredibly rich in antioxidants, Vitamin A, C, E, K and B complex. It has a wonderful amino acid, L’theanine which reduces anxiety by stimulating GABA in the brain. Read our blog here to learn more and feel free to ask us any questions!
