Our Journey

Together, let's savor the true essence of Japan's treasured tea tradition.

As passionate marketers specializing in promoting the unique experiences of international tourists in Japan, we stumbled upon Yamaguchi-en, a captivating tea shop nestled within Osaka's vibrant Kuromon Market. Intrigued by the art and science behind brewing the perfect cup of Japanese tea, our fascination grew exponentially.

We discovered that brewing sencha tea, for instance, requires a precise temperature of approximately 70°C (158°F). Deviating from this delicate balance could result in an unpleasant bitterness overpowering the subtle flavors. By fine-tuning the brewing process, we learned to unlock the tea's umami essence, accentuating its full-bodied richness without any bitter aftertaste. It became clear that temperature and water proportions play a pivotal role in crafting the perfect cup, varying from one tea variety to another.

Despite the closure of Yamaguchien in April 2023, we have taken over as the new tea supplier and will continue delivering the same exceptional tea that Yamaguchien was known for.

Driven by a desire to share our newfound passion, we established OSAKA MECCHA MATCHA TEA. Our mission is simple yet profound: to bring the world closer to the captivating world of Japanese tea by combining premium tea leaves with comprehensive brewing instructions. By doing so, we hope to ignite a global appreciation for the unrivaled taste of Japanese tea. Join us on this flavorful journey and help us spread the exquisite taste of Japanese tea to every corner of the globe.
