Our matcha is skilfully crafted in Japan by tea masters that specialise in cultivating only the highest quality leaves. Derived from tea leaves picked during the coveted first harvest or ichibancha, HIKUU matcha is ceremonial grade, ensuring the most premium matcha experience. Our matcha is defined by a unique sweetness with bright floral notes balanced with savoury umami, with its freshness reflected in its vibrant, bright green colour. HIKUU matcha is invigorating yet calming, leaving you with sustained energy and peace of mind.
HIKUU matcha is authentically sourced from Kagoshima, a coastal city situated in the southernmost prefecture of Japan's Kyushu Island, where bamboo forests meet the ocean and active volcanoes nourish the fertile land. The bountiful soil, longer daylight and warmer climate provide the perfect conditions to cultivate the world’s best matcha. The volcanic soil produces tea plants rich in antioxidants, and imparts a unique flavour profile on teas derived from their leaves. Kagoshima matcha is renowned for its sweetness compared to that of other regions, making for a highly approachable matcha, without any undesired bitterness.
