SORATE Matcha and teas are sourced straight from the farm of Nagatani Soen, the original inventor of Sencha tea. This family-owned farm is nestled between the green rolling hills of the Uji region in Kyoto, Japan. Ujitawara is a haven of lush vegetation, providing the most optimal nutrient-rich soil for cultivating a truly superior green tea.
However, through continuous research, testing, and tasting, we have discovered that growing the finest-quality tea, requires more than just ideal soil conditions and superior technical expertise. Passed down for generations within the Soen family, our special heirloom tea trees and sacred cultivation practices, are some of the contributing factors to producing this inimitable Japanese green tea.
