Matchæologist® is a luxury artisanal matcha brand from Kyoto that focuses on premium-quality matcha and contemporary matcha-ware products. Specializing in sourcing and curating only the highest-quality, artisanal-grade matcha that rivals fine wine with its multitude and sophistication of flavours in a way that invites further exploration and education in the art of making the traditional delicacy.
Matchæologist® work closely with trusted matcha sommeliers based in Kyoto, having spent several years formulating a range of artisanal matcha of the finest quality. Each batch of their matcha, which is grounded from hand-picked virgin tea buds, undergoes a proprietary ‘artisan roasting’ process to express the flavour to its fullest potential. Although more difficult and time consuming to carry out, this technique offers incomparable results, as each matcha blend is characterised by its sweet umami (うま味) flavour profile and refreshing "ooika" (覆香) aromas, unrivalled by other industrially processed matcha on the market. This has earned their matcha exclusive appeal and increasing reputation among loyal clients worldwide.
Alongside their range of matcha, Matchæologist® proudly presents a carefully selected assortment of teaware products curated and designed through collaborative partnerships with fine craftsmen across Japan. Every one of their offerings is individually handmade for its unique character, and each aspect of their suite of products has been carefully designed to balance minimalist aesthetics with contemporary functionality, ensuring an optimal matcha-making experience for the modern lifestyle.
