Sakucha's Story

West(ern australia) to east

Beginning with language and culture studies, Sakucha founder Kelsey has been making connections with Japan for over a decade. She stepped out of the corporate scene in her native Australia and moved to Kyoto. Trading the West(ern Australia) for the East, she sought to refresh body and mind.

REFRESHMENT FOUND IN A BOWL OF TEA

Refreshment was found in a bowl of matcha green tea. A number of serendipities led her to Chado: a new friend, a library book, an accidental visit to a tea shop and meeting a sensei (teacher). She commenced study and tea became a way of life.

SAKUCHA BLOOMED

Through the practice of tea and mindfulness and with a desire to help others thrive, Sakucha bloomed.

The name "Sakucha" comes from 2 Japanese words: 咲 saku (to bloom) and 茶 cha (tea). Our name reflects our mission: to help you flourish with a mindful tea practice.
