The Kagoshima Organic Matcha green tea has a rich and deep flavour. It is manufactured by Shimodozono Co., Ltd., a company founded in 1954, that focuses on the cultivation of the Yutaka Midori green tea cultivar which is suited for the warmer climate in Kagoshima.

In 1992, they attempted to export their green tea to Germany, but their products were rejected due to strict regulations against the use of pesticides and herbicides. Determined to penetrate the European market, they started growing organic green tea, but the path was a challenging one. Without the use of chemical fertilisers, pesticides, and herbicides, the yield is low, and the tea farmers had to manually remove weed. It took their team three years to develop and perfect the technique for growing organic green tea sustainably, and they finally cleared the stringent checks and received organic certification recognition by the EU in 1995.
