A Brief History of Matcha

A map of Japan with a pin highlighting the Uji region of the country

“Matcha” comes from the japanese words, “ma” (ground) & “cha” (tea).

The fine green powder was first consumed by buddhist monks 900 years ago to enhance focus during meditation and long study hours. It was then adopted by samurai, used for long-lasting energy during battle.

Matcha farms became popular around uji, a region near kyoto, after locals discovered it had the perfect climate to cultivate it.

Today, Uji is the region renowned for producing the highest quality matcha and is where PerfectTed matcha is grown!

The Tea Ceremony (“Chado”, meaning “The Way of the Tea”) was conceived in the 1500s and remains an important part of Japanese tradition today.
