Japanese Green Tea Company
Japanese Green Tea Company (1-800-380-7030) sells authentic, healthy Japanese Matcha & Green Tea harvested in sugarcane soil. Our tea is the Winner of Global Tea Championship, 2017 and Japanese National Tea Award in 1974, 1975, 1979 and 2010.
We believe that the best tea begins with high-quality dirt. Through the Chagusaba method, the farm carefully cultivates crops of thick grasses around their tea trees so that they provide added nutrients directly to the soil as a compostable blanket every winter. The farmers also collaborate with researchers from Shizuoka University to study soil and the impacts that its sweetness has on the taste of the tea it cultivates.
This labor-intensive process protects plant delicate roots while giving each tree the nutrition it needs to grow, ensuring that only the best leaves make it into their tea. This longer processing leads to a bolder flavor filled with the health-enhancing amino acid Theanine with smoother mouthfeel, and a subtle hint of sweetness and far less astringency.
