Who is Matcha Boy?
Matcha Boy is a retailer of premium, authentic Matcha and Japanese tea. Founded in Melbourne by a Japanese Australian tea lover, with the goal to provide Australians with greener and greater matcha.
Michael who is half Japanese continues to volunteer at the farms to continually refine his matcha and tea ceremony knowledge, as well as assist in the end to end production process, from farm to your table.
Matcha Boy's Values
At Matcha Boy we have three core values that direct everything we do.
Deliver The Finer Detail Of Tea
We really love tea. There is so much to tea. Like wine, there are thousands of types of tea and our mission is to help people understand, explore and appreciate the many tastes and benefits of tea. We want to provide the most finest tea, and show full transparency of where it comes from.
Support The Planet
At Matcha Boy we appreciate the Earth that grows our wonderful tea. We believe all individuals and businesses, big or small, have a responsibility to think about resources we use and how it effects the Earth. Our goal is to have our most selling product (Everyday Matcha Boy) in fully compostable packaging by December 2020, and a goal to have all our products in compostable packaging by March 2021.
Connect Australia & Japan
Australia and Japan are both great countries and we want to strengthen and create new bonds between the countries. Whether that’s selling Japanese tea in Australia, or volunteering on farms in Kyoto we want more Australians doing Japanese things, and more Japanese doing Australian things.
Wazuka, Uji, Kyoto
Wazuka is a region in the south of Uji, Kyoto. Uji tea is known as having the highest quality green tea in the world. However little is known about Wazuka, which produces 40% of Uji Tea.
Wazuka is a mountainous area with a luscious river that flows through the town. This river helps create a deep fog, which gives the green tea plants a nice sweetness. Wazuka is known in Japan as 'tea utopia' and its unique and natural landscape is what makes Matcha Boy's matcha so green, nutritious and strong.
