A story rooted in purpose, heritage and good health
Hi! I'm Aiko, founder of Matchalo. I absolutely adore matcha after discovering the fascinating history of green tea culture in Japan as I was ditching my daily coffee habit for something healthier! Dissatisfied with the travesty of awful, low quality sad-bagged green teas that dominate markets and cafes across America, my mission began and I started sourcing high ranking matcha in Japan. Born and raised in the US , I am over-the-moon to connect more deeply with my Japanese heritage and share this beautiful culture with my American matcha community.
Based on the principles of purpose, good health and promoting the industry and heritage of Japanese tea, I look forward to bridging Japanese tea farmers and producers to bringing you exceptional, high quality teas that reflect their dedication and skill in crafting unique, small batch teas. I honor the history of tea culture in Japan and invite you to join in on this journey of exploration from field to cup!
The word "ganbatte" is a popular expression in Japan that means "do your best!". We embrace the ganbatte spirit of the Japanese community in our company mission. We encourage everyone to do their best so together we can create better health for ourselves, our communities and for our planet.
