DōMatcha™ makes the world's best tasting Genmai Cha and North American tea connoisseurs agree, awarding our Genmai Cha 1st Place at the 2013 North American Tea Championships.
Unlike other genmai cha which is made from bancha leaves and roasted rice, we use tencha leaves and matcha with roasted rice, creating an extremely smooth tasting green tea with a delightful nutty flavor.
Tetra shaped tea bags made from organic cornstarch are used for a premium quality brew. Each teabag makes 2-3 cups of hot or iced tea (20 teabags per container).

The DōMatcha Tea-M
We are excited to unveil our new video, "Matcha: The Way of Tea." A travel styled mini-documentary that uncovers the history, production and future of matcha tea. This spectacular journey takes you from amazing organic mountain tea fields, stunning forestscapes, and the natural spring wells of Kagoshima, Japan to the bustling tea-shop filled streets of ancient Uji City, Kyoto. Enjoy!
The DōMatcha™ Tea-m headed to Japan in May, bringing along a small video crew from Los Angeles, California. We arrived during spring matcha production to capture the process for a short video. We learned a lot about what goes on behind the scenes. Many thanks to our Tea Master, Mr. Kazunori Handa, who coordinated our visit; and to our video director, Katherine Bowers, a professional to the end. Look foward to a fun and informative video this fall. See our Japan trip photo album on our Facebook page, as well as a short video on picking tea.

Many of you followed DōMatcha's™ Final Four Athletes over the past year as they explored the benefits of matcha tea on their training and competitions. As part of the Grand Matcha Experiment, a portion of the profits from our DōMatcha™ T-shirts goes to support youth athletic groups selected by the Final Four. In 2011 DōMatcha's™ Marketing Director, Calli O'Brien, was in Toronto to present one of our Final Four members, Geoffrey Peat, with a $300 check in support of his Newmarket Huskies Track Club youth x-country running group in Newmarket, Ontario. Geoffrey says he'll likely use the funds to purchase winter running hats so his club can continue running in comfort through their chilly winters.

We always knew it was a winner, but now it's official. At the annual North American Tea Championship held during the World Tea Expo this spring, DōMatcha's™ Genmai Cha placed 1st overall in the Blended Green Tea category. Our Organic Ceremonial Matcha placed 2nd in the Matcha category. We've had rave reviews about how smooth and sweet smelling it is, and now even the experts agree! The Tea Championship is judged by professional tea tasters with a demonstrated ability to identify high quality teas. We must say, they have great taste!
For those who missed the June newsletter - here's the latest: While DōMatcha™ teas are grown in Kyoto and Kagoshima, far from the location of the Japanese tsunami and nuclear crisis, we are taking many precautions to monitor our tea quality. The Kyoto Tea Association recently tested tea plants in the region and published a report indicating no radiation detected in the plants. To make doubly sure, our producers in both Kyoto and Kagoshima are testing the soil, water, and tea plants to ensure no signs of radiation. In the unlikely event any radiation is detected, rest assured we will not use the affected plants. Matcha drinkers come to us for pure, healthy teas, and DōMatcha™ will deliver! Our current supply, and for months yet to come, is derived from 2010 harvests. Stay tuned for future updates on Facebook and in our monthly e-newsletter.
"Across the Blue Sea" video producer Katherine Bowers recently explored the world of matcha with the DōMatcha team at "Mothers Market" in Costa Mesa, California. Join Katherine and DōMatcha sales director Calli O'Brien for a look at the time-tested goodness of matcha tea.
