zhong cha #102 & yabukita | hybrid matcha

This tea is certified organic and produced to fair labor standards.

Our flagship organic matcha begins deep in the mountains of China’s Chun’an county. Here we manage Feng Shu Ling farm, our matcha project—a joint venture between Japanese growers and Chinese farmers. Produced from a cultivar hybrid of Yabukita (the gold standard in matcha production) and Zhong Cha #102 (an experimental cultivar optimized for the terroir), our custom matcha boasts an exceptionally clean, mineral-forward, and understated flavor profile, perfect for lattes and culinary applications.

Production master and trusted partner Wei Xie oversees the operation, ensuring it meets our rigorous criteria for sustainability, fair labor, and organics. Wei prioritizes purity and cleanliness in production—because the whole leaf is consumed when drinking matcha, pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide-free tea is paramount. Each batch is thoroughly tested by independent labs, ensuring the land, the workers, and the tea from this hyper-unique farming project are utterly clean.
