Profile

Cultivation

Profile
Raku Paradise is made from 100% Okumidori and comes from a single tea garden in Uji.


Single-estate, single-cultivar matchas like Raku Paradise are a rarity as most matcha is made by blending a variety of cultivars from different gardens.


Okumidori is one of the more recent cultivars to be grown in Japan and is selected for the richness of its flavor.


Only 3% of the green tea plants grown in the whole of Japan are of the Okumidori cultivar and an even smaller percentage of these are organic.

Cultivation
Harvested in spring from the first flush, Raku Paradise is from an organic garden in Uji where all of the plants are of the Okumidori cultivar.


Organic ceremonial grade matcha is much harder to produce than non-organic ceremonial grade matcha.


Until recently, the farmers lacked the technology to create organic fertilizers that were able to supply the tea plants with the additional nutrients they need while they are shaded from the sun. Without these nutrients, the tea plants are unable to produce enough amino acids in the leaves and organic matcha tea can therefore taste more bitter compared to non-organic matcha tea.


However, a small number of farmers (like the farmers who make our Raku Paradise matcha) are now using new technologies and organic pest control methods to produce organic ceremonial grade matcha that rivals the best non-organic ceremonial grade matcha.


Organic Japanese matcha doesn’t get much better than Raku Paradise.
