My name is Valentin and I am the founder of Kumiko Matcha. I created Kumiko Matcha 8 years ago to introduce authentic premium organic matcha from Japan to the French community, and to help them introduce this special tea to their peers.

I travel to Japan each year to meet with my farmer-partners and seek new organic farmers (they are rare!) to tell their stories to our community: people passionate about the rite of tea and drinking premium organic matcha.

With Kumiko Matcha we only offer organic and natural products for 3 reasons: protect the environment, protect the health of all the Kumiko community - meaning from the tea farmer in his tea garden to our customer who is drinking the tea; and to make Kumiko a force for the good in the world and be the change we want to see in the world.

Our community loves our products. Not only because we offer the best standards of quality: what separates us from other brands is the authenticity that we are able to project. Through many videos of myself (Val, founder) actually in Japan with the tea farmers in their tea gardens, we seek to link the tea that you are drinking right now, the tea bowl that you are holding, to the whole chain of events that hide behind this single experience: who made this tea bowl, who produced this organic tea, why? what is their life like? etc. It's not just a "thing" it's a whole authentic story behind every product we sell. And we tell that story. And you can be part of it
