Got Matcha Story


Our Story


Around .....  21 years ago when Rebekah, our eldest, entered college to become a Certified Holistic Nutritionist. It was at this time she chanced upon an amazing life changing tea called “Matcha”. Years before Starbucks and other chains jumped on the bandwagon, Rebekah discovered for herself, and our family, the power behind Matcha and what the buddhist temple priests called, “the elixir of the immortals”. We discovered for ourselves the health benefits first hand ... increased energy & clarity, enhanced metabolism and weight management among many other things.




Fast forward to 2010. Fed up with the poor quality and high prices of the matcha being imported, the Kjos family set on a quest to find the rarest and most precious matcha on the earth, and bring it to market at an affordable price. Is all matcha created equal? Absolutely not. What makes our Matcha the finest in the world? Location, soil and the generations of experience of our tea sommelier and farmers. Matcha is only as good as the soil it is grown in, and our Matcha is grown on a small volcanic island in the south of Japan, rich in minerals and volcanic ash; producing a superior Matcha in both taste and L-Theanine content. 

You ask, What is L-Theanine? The magic behind Matcha. The higher the content of L-theanine in your matcha, the more potent and greater the benefits to you. Our Black Label, for example, has 2 to 3 times the L-theanine content of any other matcha in the world. And, all of our Matcha and Matcha lifestyle products are certified organic. For the Matcha plant to truly yield the highest levels of nutrients and benefits, the plant must be grown for 5 years before harvest can begin. 

Most competitor’s matcha is only grown 2 to 3 years. For Got Matcha it is not about the money, but about the quality. At our plant, every product we create, every tea, superfood bar or matcha protein powder, are created with one end goal; to give our customers the highest quality Matcha Lifestyle foods, to help reverse the downward trend of the aging process and make attainable a higher quality of life.
