We hope, that by sharing tea, we nurture deep connections with nature. That with every sip, we're reminded of our intimate connection with the environment and how we must look after it to thrive now and in into the future.


THOUGHTFUL DESIGN

We make the best choices available to us across our entire operations, starting with product design. For example, our Sakucha Chasen Matcha Whisk is packed into a bamboo container that is not only plastic-free (unlike most tea whisk cases) but is re-usable as a travel case and flower vase. 


100% Organic tea

All of our tea is made from 100% JAS certified organic tea leaves. Organic tea is cultivated and processed without the use of agricultural chemicals. We work directly with organic tea farmers in Uji, Japan and can therefore trace our tea from cup to tea garden. Sakucha tea is a reflection of the natural conditions presented during the season and the skill and care tea of the tea framers we work with. These farmers aim to offer delicious and nutritious tea while caring for the planet.


Compostable Tea Pouch

We pack all of our tea in home compostable pouches. This packaging has been purpose-designed to provide a high-barrier storage solution. These pouches protect tea from light, oxygen and moisture to keep it fresh from the farm to your tea space. This ensures best taste and less waste. We make our tea labels with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper, food-grade glue and non-toxic ink. The labels are produced in an Australian solar-powered facility with minimal water consumption. On the other hand, most tea comes in a single use packets made of plastic or metal - using non-renewable resources and creating waste. 


Carbon Neutral & Plastic-Free Delivery

We pack your matcha mail into a compostable mailer with a compostable shipping label. Made entirely from plants, these mailers are protective and durable, while combatting the problem of single-use plastic. Use your mailer again or compost it right at home. Learn more at Hero Packaging.

We make carbon neutral deliveries across Australia and New Zealand via Sendle or Australia Post
