History

do matchaDōMatcha is 100% authentic Japanese, directly from Kagoshima and Uji, Kyoto where matcha originated and where the most premium quality matcha is produced. Our supplier is based in Uji, Kyoto and has been in the tea business for 300 years. Our brand is also supported by the famous Japa-nese tea master Mr. Kazunori Handa, whose family has been in the tea business for 400 years.

Quality

why2DōMatcha is cultivated, harvested and processed very carefully every step of the way to keep it fresh and rich in flavor and nutrients, the Japanese way! Very little machinery is used in the process to assure top quality and stay true to the ancient roots of matcha.

Only the top finest and youngest, shade-grown leaves are chosen to be hand-picked. Right after the harvest,
DōMatcha is carefully steamed to prevent the enzymes from oxidizing and then stored in specially designed facili-ties to keep it fresh all year round. Before grinding, all the rough fiber (stems and veins) is removed to reduce any bitter flavor. Some matcha producers use not only lower grade leaves but also include stems and other rough fiber to get more volume and reduce costs.

The slow grinding in the traditional granite grinding stones guarantees the maximum protection of nutrients as the stones break the fiber naturally without overheating and ‘burning’ the powder. Matcha that is produced outside of Japan is usually broken down by using hot air pressure which destroys the natural structure and overheats the green tea leaves resulting in a less fine, inconsistent powder with low nutritional value.

Since matcha loses color, flavor and nutrients easily by being exposed to light and air (oxidization), proper pack-aging is very important. DōMatcha is extremely well protected in a sealed foil bag and a sealed tin.

Purity

why3The only way to really be sure about the quality of the matcha is by asking for proof in the form of test results from an independent lab. An independent lab tests all our matcha. There are never any detectable residual chemicals from pesticides. DōMatcha is pure, clean and additive free.
Organic DōMatcha is certified by JONA (Japan Organic and Natural Foods Association) and JAS (Japan Agriculture Standard), which follow stricter regulations and higher standards than the North American certification associa-tions. They require the use of only natural fertilizers and the chemical-free cultivation of the tea plants for at least 3 years prior to certification. Organic DōMatcha is also certified by AB (Agriculture Biologique). Organic products carrying this logo must contain more than 95 percent organic components. Organic DōMatcha is also certified by Eu Algriculture, the governing body for the European Community. Organic DōMatcha is also certified Kosher.

Conclusion

Treat yourself to the gift of DōMatcha, our pure, clean, additive free powerhouse and make the ancient luxury of matcha part of your daily ritual.
