Material Matcha Uji (MMU) produces insanely good Matcha Green Tea.
We collaborate with traditional tea-masters, use ancient blending techniques and the highest quality tea leaves from Uji, in order to create the most exclusive blends of matcha ever offered to the world.
Handmade, craft matcha green tea from Uji, Kyoto.
Tea leaves from the first harvest only (we select the top 2 or 3 leaves of each stem).
Traditional straw-shading to boost taste naturally.
Expert blending to reach maximum flavor profiles.
We conceived 3 matcha blends with very distinct flavor profiles. They are each made of several green tea varieties, and blended according to our (secret) ratios.
MMU01: Sharp blend of Okumidori, Zairai, Samidori and Yabukita.
MMU02: Smooth blend of Samidori and Okumidori.
MMU03: Full bodied blend of Samidori and Gokou.
Take a look at our story, our impact on Uji tea-farming, and how we became the most funded drink on Kickstarter!
At MMU we see matcha as a pure, un-compromised green material; a substance not unlike water, gold, mercury, or precious stone.
We craft the highest quality matcha in the world with a simple & radical idea: aim for purity, and exert the most demanding taste-making skills.
Our teas are one-of-a-kind, and extremely rare: less than 100kg are produced every year.
Making high grade matcha is no walk in the park! We are lucky to enjoy the many exceptional conditions of the fabulous Uji Terroir.
But then, matcha does not craft itself: we craft our tea both in complete respect of the ancestral Uji traditions, as well as through rigorous experimentations in blending and grinding.
Through our vessels, objects and ceramics we reinvent the ritual of tea ceremony, paying homage to Japanese minimalism: leave traditions, start anew.
Who Are We?
Material Matcha Uji 宇治 is the story of two friends: Morgan & Etienne, who went on a quest for purity. Living in Japan for years, they completely let go and embarked on a journey to find, salvage and re-create the rarest tea making techniques.
Material Matcha Uji 宇治 was funded and initiated via a massively successful Kickstarter campaign raising $130,000 from an initial $10,000 goal, becoming the most funded pure “Drink” project ever!

I love that there is finally some great matcha available outside of Japan, I struggled to find top quality stuff made in the US and would often find myself stealing my girlfriends matcha lol.

I got the pack earlier than expected and it is great. I’ve tried other matcha, but this is definitely the best one!
Alicia Cheng –
This an amazing green tea matcha powder from Japan! I went to Japan many years with my job so I have enjoyed a long history of matcha. However, I find several matcha today not as good as I have always had. This one, however, is clearly the best! This company also offer an artistic zine to explain the story. I would give this tea and its company 10 stars!

Purchased the pack for my best friend a week ago and we are sold. She’s tried a lot of matcha and this MMU02 blend is literally one of the best. The flavor is so soft and it leaves a great aftertaste! Will be buying again once the matcha gets low.
Absolutely amazing pack!!! It was delivered by fedex and I could offer it to my friend for her birthday. Happy customer!!! Will be back
Purchased Material Matcha Uji starter pack as a gift for my brother a few weeks ago…and he absolutely loves it!!!
I don’t know where to start…this matcha is amazing! I typically and traditionally used average everyday culinary matcha for lattes for years. Then as I got wiser I started taking more pride in my taste and health. I personally use this every morning. Not only is this product all natural and hand made but it feels it, and the tools provided are great. I highly recommend this for anyone who ACTUALLY cares and wants a great cup of matcha everyday.
I got this matcha starter pack as a gift from my husband. He loves it and so do I. It smells great!
