Matcha green tea is made from only the finest tea plants, shade-grown for the final three weeks prior to harvest. During the shading the plants produce higher levels of theanine than found in coffee, which accounts for the calming energy felt after drinking. The stems and veins are removed before the leaves are ground to a fine powder which is then dissolved in water meaning the whole leaf is ingested unlike other green teas. Matcha is packed with antioxidants, nutrients and is rich in fibre, chlorophyll and vitamins. Boosting metabolism, it naturally detoxifies, enhances mood and aids relaxation.
UKIYO is a London based start-up. All UKIYO flavours are hand blended in the UK and delivered from London. We only use premium-quality Japanese green tea, farmed on the hills of the Shizuoka Prefecture, to create our unique, beautifully crafted range that is so much more than tea.
To complement our pure traditional ceremonial grade tea, we have developed five unique flavour profiles that enhance and work with our pure matcha with the addition of fruits and spices.
UKIYO has been designed to be drunk in the traditional way, but can also be drunk as healthy shot, added to smoothies and lattes, mixed as a cocktail, used for baking or sprinkled over food.
UKIYO is a Japanese word which closely translates to ‘the floating world’ and means ‘to be in the moment and detach from the bothers of everyday life.’
