Family owned since 1888, Aiya is the world’s leading Matcha green tea<https://www.aiya-america.com/consumers/matcha-products.html> producer, headquartered deep within Nishio of Aichi Prefecture, Japan, where the finest Matcha green tea has been grown for over 800 years.

When first established, Aiya’s primary focus was on dyes and Gyokuro tea production. Soon thereafter, the owner sought to move the business toward producing more premium tea – Matcha. He teamed with local tea producers to cultivate new fields and worked tremendously hard in improving the technology of stone granite grinder mills to create a stable environment for the teas. His innovations to centuries-old technology are still used in today’s modern production facilities. The two most important tea growing areas for Aiya’s organic matcha are Toyota and Kagoshima. Located in the mountains at 600 m sea level, Toyota’s cooler climate acts as a natural barrier and protects the organic fields, as only a few insects survive in the colder temperature. Located in the southern edge of Japan, Kagoshima is an optimal location for organic teas because of its vast fields, mineral-rich volcanic soil, and remoteness from the city.Aiya takes pride in its tea farmers, who are an important part of the Aiya family. Dedicated to the wellness of its famers, Aiya purchases the entire annual crop of its farmers under pre-established guidelines, ensuring their ongoing income, even if a single crop cannot be used. Aiya continually strives to improve product quality. Each step of production is thoroughly monitored and documented, while internal laboratory inspections are conducted to ensure that the final product conforms to stringent standards prior to shipment. Aiya holds a number of internal certifications that are unmatched in the industry: FSSC 22000, AIB (Superior), Organic Certifications by OMIC & JAS, Kosher, Halal, QAI, Gluten-Free and Non-GMO Certified.
