Our Story: Meet the People of DōMatcha®

When we chose the name DōMatcha®, we reflected on the long journey that began generations ago and culminated in a partnership with the single goal of sharing the soul of Japanese sadō--the ‘way of tea’--with North America.

In this video about DōMatcha®’s beginnings, learn more about John Harrison, whose great-grandfather established the first foreign trading company in Japan. Also learn about Kazunori Handa, a tea master whose knowledge and expertise comes from over 400 years of family heritage. Their partnership has brought the pure goodness of Japanese matcha across the ocean.

DōMatcha® means the ‘journey of matcha’. This is our journey.
