Unashamedly obsessed by Matcha Green Tea from our many trips to Japan, our mission is to help others enjoy the many health benefits of regularly drinking superior tasting Matcha while looking after our Environment via Eco-friendly home compostable packaging.

Matcha Yu are delighted to bring to you 2018 & 2019 Golden Leaf Award Winning Premium Matcha sourced from the tea fields of Uji, Japan.

This superior tasting tea is handpicked at the start of the tea harvest season in May and is considered Ceremonial Grade which is what is used in traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Over the past 50 years, the Tea grower from the Emperor Award Winning Kifukuen Tea Farm (Matcha Yu’s supplier) has won the 1st Prize more than 20 times in an Annual Competition for Tea in Japan.

Also part of our range is a 2019 Golden Leaf Award Winning Certified Organic Everyday Matcha along with the increasingly popular Houjicha Roasted Green Tea Powder available for all of your everyday drinking and culinary needs, both high quality and sourced from Japan.

Matcha Yu also offers a unique Tea Shaker Device also available to help making a cup of Matcha a breeze!

Matcha Yu owner Erin Lindwall developed an appreciation for Matcha tea after working in Japan and becoming immersed in the culture.

Back in 2010, she was lucky enough to spend half a year living in Kyoto in Japan, experiencing a magical city rich in culture and history.  This ancient former capital of Japan enchanted her with its World Heritage Temples, Shrines & Gardens, Geisha sightings and abundance of delicious Japanese cuisine.

Whilst there, Erin became particularly obsessed with Matcha (Japanese powdered green tea) and would eat and drink whatever Matcha flavoured delights she could get my hands on such as Ice Cream, Parfaits, Chocolate and much more.

She also took great joy in sitting quietly in a temple teahouse sipping on rich fragrant Matcha and taking in the surroundings, a totally zen experience!

Upon returning to Melbourne, Australia in 2011, Matcha was relatively new and undiscovered here yet Erin sought it out feverishly to get her fix and take her back to the nostalgic feelings of living in Kyoto.

And so Matcha Yu was created! Erin is now combining her love of Matcha with her passion for our planet by offering a reusable Tea Shaker paired with superior Japanese Green Tea straight from Japan to bring you an authentic flavour you won't be able to get enough of. Not only that, the tea comes in home compostable packaging.

Erin has a deep love and knowledge of Japanese culture and have forged a wonderful connection over many years with her Japanese supplier, Kifukuen Tea Farm in Uji, Japan. The business is based on trust, respect and a deep appreciation of Japan and its Tea, as well as caring for our precious Environment.

Now Melbourne based, Erin does all she can to minimise waste and enhance the environment. She is an active volunteer participating in regular beach clean-ups and works with local environmental groups and government to create change that benefits the environment. Ms Lindwall said, “Because I am very environmentally focused, I wanted to make sure that anything I offer my customers is really eco-friendly"

"Can't thank you enough for introducing my taste buds to a truly pure delicious tea and the restorative affects your Matcha has on my burnt out and highly stressed daily dips at 3pm. Pouring a cup mid arvo at the office has saved my sanity since I received your wonderful product and started drinking daily. I love it so much I also swirl a spoonful into my yoghurt and berry bowl in the morning. Can't wait to try more of your smartly sourced teas. 🙏🏾 Read Less"

"The matcha tea is amazing! It is so fresh, is filled with goodness and tastes great! If your not sure where to start, I would recommend the Culinary matcha tea shaker set, which gives you everything you need to get started, and its so easy to DIY home-made matcha lattes. I enjoy mine mixed with an almond/cocounut milk and in my opinion is better than I have bought at many cafes"
