About Us

Hi, my name is Erin and I have a confession to make...

I'm a Matcha addict!

Back in 2010, I 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 me with its World Heritage Temples,  Shrines & Gardens , Geisha sightings and abundance of delicious Japanese cuisine.

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

I also took great joy in sitting quietly in a temple tea house sipping on rich fragrant Matcha and taking in my surroundings, a totally zen experience! 

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

And so Matcha Yu was created!

I am now combining my love of Matcha with my 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

I have a deep love and knowledge of Japanese culture and have forged a wonderful connection over many years with my Japanese supplier,

Kifukuen Tea Farm.

My business is based on trust, respect and a deep appreciation of Japan and its Tea, as well as caring for our precious Environment.
