Just a 30 seconds walk from Ningyocho Station or a 5-minute walk from Suitengumae Station is ATELIER MATCHA, serving premium matcha drinks and sweets, allowing customers to enjoy the original taste and flavour of matcha in a casual setting. The shop receives green tea from the wholesaler Yamamasa Koyamaen who has grown and produced its tea from a garden cultivated since the early Edo period!

Yamamasa Koyamaen selects superior tea varieties and has been awarded 18 tea brands by the heads of tea ceremony schools. It manufactures and distributes high-grade teas, mainly matcha, gyokuro, and sencha, to over 1000 tea retailers and tea utensil shops nationwide, department stores, domestic and foreign trading companies, hotels, inns, and traditional Japanese restaurants. 

Background on ATELIER MATCHA

Atelier Matcha Background 1

The world has witnessed a boom in MATCHA, so there wouldn’t be a better time to open a matcha experience cafe where people can enjoy the original taste and culture of matcha nurtured in Japan 🇯🇵

ATELIER MATCHA was an idea born during a trip to France in late 2019. Masayoshi Koyama, director of Yamamasa Koyamaen, and Chitose Nagao held a tea ceremony showcasing their green tea at a trade fair in Paris. They were pleasantly surprised to see Parisians enjoying matcha and its culture. Convinced about matcha’s potential, Nagao visited Koyama in Uji, Kyoto, to share his ideas and observations abroad, eventually creating a great business.

Fun fact: Did you know that straight matcha has incredible health benefits due to its high levels of catechins and theanine? It is the perfect drink for waking up in the morning or refreshing yourself during work. In Silicon Valley and New York in the USA, matcha is favoured by engineers and creatives as a ‘creativity drink’ that stimulates the brain.

ATELIER MATCHA specialises in matcha, serving unique mixed drinks, straight matcha shots, sweets, and other seasonal products. The cafe is particular about using premium grade matcha such as Ogurayama and Tennozan; these are signature brands blended and sold by Yamamasa Koyamaen for use in tea ceremonies. How sweet is that?

You can enjoy your matcha drink and sweets inside the cafe or take out. You may also choose to pass by to grab some sweets and a drink for a loved one or as souvenirs; either way, make sure to come to ATELIER MATCHA to savour authentic premium Japanese green tea 💚
