The history of ceramics work in Japan is one as deep as the history of matcha itself. Today, there are many craftspeople still producing premium ceramics in Japan - for matcha, and for all types of tea. Many of them inherited the passion and skillset from the generation before them, with many clay workers commonly being 3-5th generation.
We selected these 'Matcha Mugs' for their rugged, unique appearance, as well as their strong construction. These mugs are suitable for mixing and drinking matcha directly, and may also be happily enjoyed with other types of Japanese tea.
Select from two premium color-ways. Both styles have been traditionally designed, yet with modern convenience in mind. For a lighter appearance, see the 'Soft White' style. And for a darker complexion, kindly select the 'Kaizen Black' variation.
These ceramics are made from only premium, specialized clay that has been specially blended by our artisan partner producers and are 100% food safe.

Like you, our co-founder Dr. Weil is equally picky about what he's putting in his body. It took years for matcha.com to create our matcha-growing collective in Japan to develop what our customers often call "The Purest and most potent matcha on the planet!
What makes our Matcha Best
It was pleasing to see growing awareness of matcha in America, but we were dismayed by the low qualities available when visiting cafés, tea shops, and restaurants. So, on our following trips to Japan, we purchased small tins of the quality tea to bring home, along with tea bowls, scoops, and whisks. Soon we were in the habit of drinking a bowl of matcha twice a day! Turning loved ones onto it, and leading a growing audience into giving it a try.

The Excellence of Uji-Matcha®
Our matcha is of exceptional quality, grown entirely on the pristine hillsides of Uji, Kyoto, where Japanese matcha originated one thousand years ago. Matcha from Uji is prized as the finest in the world. We are proud to be the only bulk source in the Americas offering 100% true, traditional Uji-matcha®.
What Makes our Matcha Best?
Our matcha is primarily produced from tea leaves grown in the region of Japan known as Uji, Kyoto. Through an exclusive relationship with our tea-farm (Japan's oldest and most authentic), we're able to share the most exquisite matcha that Japan has to offer – grown on the purest, most carefully maintained land. And each year, the tea-master specially blends the best leaves into the matcha we enjoy today. Since most of this quality of matcha stays for enjoyment within Japan, we're honored to have the chance to share it with you.
