Uji, Kyoto is known for the absolute highest grade Matcha green tea in Japan, and no other region can even come close to claiming that they produce a Matcha that rivals even a middle grade Matcha from Uji. The art of growing Matcha was developed here in Uji, and is the closest kept secret around.
Green Tea with 126 years of History
Matabay specializes exclusively in growing high quality Uji Matcha, and for the first time in our history, we are opening our doors to the “public market”. For 126 years, the Horii family has produced only the finest of teas, to be sold only to the top tea blenders, to be sold to an exclusive list of customers.
Skilled Green Tea Farming
In other words, the Matabay Matcha represents 126 years of skilled tea farming, and is a tea that we are extremely proud of. We are able to offer this tea for a reasonable price (compared to the quality that is), because this tea was grown by us, and because we wanted to offer an affordable ultra high grade Matcha green tea to the world. For us, this is not a matter of price; it is a matter of pride. It is our deepest desire that high quality Japanese tea can be delivered to tea lovers around the world, and in many ways we feel ashamed that very few quality Japanese teas ever reach those who truly appreciate the true value and flavor of Japanese tea. This green tea is our answer. If there was one tea in this site that we would love for you to try, this is it.
This tea is a Koi-cha (thick tea), which means you can use this tea for either Koi-cha or Usu-cha. This tea is naturally sweet, deep, full of aroma, smoother than silk, and mellow beyond belief.
