Yosa or よさ, is Japanese for great quality.
At Yosa Matcha we source our high-quality matcha from Uji, Japan, famous in the tea world for two things: master tea farmers and the highest-quality matcha in the world.
Beginning over 800 years ago, Japanese monks drank matcha to boost calmness and to provide mental stamina for enhancing their meditation experience. Samurai learned about the benefits from Monks and drank matcha as a pre-battle boost for enhanced energy and endurance. Royalty also drank matcha daily too, well…because they're royal.
Fast forward to today, matcha is everywhere and its nourishing beneﬁts have been well studied and documented to greatly improve health.
We are passionate about high quality matcha and the superfood health beneﬁts it provides, which makes us honored and committed to share it with you.
We love matcha. Pure and simple. This is how we got here.
Xavier discovered the powerful health benefits of matcha while serving as a U.S. Marine in Okinawa, Japan. While stationed there he fell in love with and immersed himself in the Japanese culture learning the language, customs, and traditions.
Mike is a fellow Marine who served in combat and has always looked for ways to keep internal balance. Xavier introduced Mike to matcha as a means to help with his pursuit of health and he quickly became a champion of matcha encouraging friends, veterans, and family to consume it.
After discovering the growing interest people have for matcha they decided to turn their passion in to a business. As Marines, they have high standards in everything they do and have leveraged their experience and resourcefulness to commit to providing the highest quality matcha in the world to it's customers.
Yosa is Japanese for great quality and goodness. It goes well with the expectation of high standards these Marines have for their matcha products and the service they provide.
