Matcha is an infinitely precious material, and as such deserves to be stored in a beautiful way. We pay homage to the purity of material with a first Limited Edition Ceramic, an everyday celebration of matcha as a modern life ritual!
MMU02, 30g Matcha Green Tea
The Material Matcha “Zine”
Limited Ceramic Vessel
When conceiving MMU02 we chose to go in the direction of extreme smoothness and balance: Okumidori’s roundness and moderation had to perfectly complement the depth and flamboyance of “shaded” tea favorite, Uji’s very own Samidori variety. The result is a fruity, smooth and all round balanced blend.
Flavor: Fruity, Balanced, Round
Umami: Sweet Umami
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!
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!
