House of Matcha brings ceremonial-grade Japanese green tea to New York City and beyond. Shipped fresh from Kyota in airtight cans, this striking brand essentially encapsulates the founder's background in design and health. A designer-turned-trainer, Stephen Cheuk also harbored a deep passion for matcha tea and decided to take a turn at the industry himself.

The result was House of Matcha, which not only sells quality products, but also those with a modern twist. This twist is sure to speak to urban dwellers as much as those with an appreciation for tradition. What sets House of Matcha apart from its competitors -- there are many considering the current craze -- is the fact that it sources it directly from its native land. Three different matcha blends are available right now.
