We sell and distribute high-quality Matcha in a wide array of possible grades, from Ceremonial grade to culinary to meet the needs of the most demanding chefs. In order to assure the freshness and quality of our products, we bring products by air just after produced and we never hold stocks for a long time. We have a long-standing relationship with the Japanese Tea Farms that grow and manufacture our teas.

Aoi Seicha, Our Partner
Aoi Seicha is a specialized manufacturer of safe and fine quality powdered green tea. The yield of tencha with traditional organic farming produced by contracted tea growers in Aichi Prefecture is ranked top in Japan. In particular, The Matcha House stores, packs and labels all it's products in Aoi Seicha's facilities to fulfil our customer requests on a multi-product, small-lot basis. By working together with Aoi, we can supply the finest Japanese Green Tea that every business, in every industry, needs.
Our main production location for Matcha is in the Nishio region in Aichi prefecture, near the center of the Japanese main island of Honshu. Nishio is one of the most important regions in production of “Tencha” – raw material which makes Matcha, the typical Japanese powdered green tea used both for the traditional tea ceremony and for cooking. Rich in the historic success of Matcha cultivation, the Nishio region is one of Japan’s best kept tea secrets. Along the Yahagi River there is a high hill called Inariyama, where our Tencha is cultivated. The fields extend over more than 150 hectares and annually produce 350 tons of Tencha in Nishio. One reason that this is a privileged place for the manufacture of Matcha is that the composition of the red earth and sands for the area provides good water drainage. Another is that thanks to Yahagi river, the earth keeps the humidity level necessary for the proper growth of Tencha. Its geographic location and temperate climate have helped get rid of the effects fortunately. These abundant resources make us one of the most diversified matcha supplier in the world.
Nishide Seichajyo, Our Partner at Uji
Our premium Koi Series tea bags are grown in the hills around Ujidawara in Kyoto. In this famous region some of the best quality Japanese teas are produced. Green tea is not fermented unlike black tea and the green tea’s life is much shorter than other teas. The Matcha House is faithful to its mission to select the best quality green tea, pack them with special formats and bring them by air to provide the products in the best condition to its customers.
