The Path Of Zen

Over 800 years ago a young Buddhist priest by the name of Myoan Eisai left his native Japan on a spiritual journey for greater awareness and knowledge. Eisai returned to Japan with a new found philosophy called “Chan” and some unique tea seeds. Using the Chan philosophy Myoan Eisai created the Rinzai School of Zen Buddhism in Japan and became “Zen Master Eisai”.

The special tea seeds were given to a learned Buddhist priest named Myoe Shonin to plant on the grounds of a temple near Kyoto. These special tea leaves made a green tea powder called “matcha”. The Buddhist monks found that matcha had exceptional health and spiritual qualities and used this tea to increase focus and chi energy for Zen Meditation.

The Uji Way (Ujido)

During this time, Master Myoe discovered a sacred location with the perfect climate and soil to grow superior matcha. This place was called Uji, located in the beautiful hills of southern Kyoto . Soon Uji gained the reputation of producing the finest grown matcha in all of Japan. The fame and quality of Uji-grown matcha spread far and wide and even caught the attention of the most powerful ruler of that region: Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu (builder of the Famous Zen Temple Kinkakuji in Kyoto).

Today Uji-grown matcha is known as the highest quality matcha in the world and is sought after by matcha enthusiasts far and wide.

What is Matcha?

Matcha is a very unique Japanese Green Tea, a finely powdered tea used in the traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. Most Teas are made from tea leaves grown in open air Tea Fields with plenty of sunlight, however Japanese Matcha tea leaves are grown in a shaded Tea Field.


Natural amino acids in the tea leaves give a smooth and rich flavor. When exposed to sun those amino acids start to transform and oxidize into a more astringent taste. Because of this, Matcha tea has a rich mellow taste compared with the Teas grown in Open-Air Fields.

Continuing with ancient traditions right after the tea leaves are plucked, they are steamed evenly to stop the oxidation process and enhance the flavor while maintaining a rich green color, then dried without rolling to make the finest Japanese Matcha. The result is a bold tasting green tea bursting with flavor.
