Nagata Chaen Tea Company is a reputed provider of organic green tea and started growing green tea in 1946. High-grade Organic Uji Matcha products are cultivated under the diligent management of tea master Juro Okuda. The tea is covered with a special cloth for a long period to produce a deep green color.It is very difficult to grow organic matcha; one must fight against both bugs and dsiseases. Harmful insects appear because of small climate changes, destroying the matcha. For this reason, it is essential to manage the cultivation in a way that places importance on the natural ecosystem.

Top-grade and special high-grade products for the tea ceremony are ground in a stone mortar. This creates a unique smoothness which is perfect for tea ceremony usage.
Products for commercial use can be blended into Aojiru (green vegetable juice), cakes, or noodles. They are ground in a continuous grinder called “bead mill.”
