With our products, we want to inspire. Our goal is not to make people buy the cheapest Matcha tea. On the contrary – our aspiration is to offer products of extraordinary quality. This is what we are working forevery single day, together with our mother company in Japan.
AIYA Matcha is the result of this work: a broad product portfolio, exceptional product quality, a traditional product with a modern impression. Our Matcha is 100 % Matcha – not stretched, not brightened. Pure and clear. All our products are undergoing strict quality controls, which you, as our customer, can examine at any time.
Of course, after the events in Fukushima, also an analysis for radioactivity is part of our standard. the respective analysis can be requested for every single product. By the way: all products that have been imported since the accident have proven uncontaminated.
We are particularly proud to have been certified as an IFS Broker since 2021. The IFS certification is a special recognition of our product quality and safety with regard to our processes and services. Our claim to always offer our customers the highest product and service quality and our efforts on the continuous path to this goal are officially confirmed by the IFS certificate.
AIYA has been producing organic teas since 1978. Yoshio Sugita, AIYA’s fourth generation president, and our award-winning tea maker Tetsuo Ishikawa are pioneers of organic tea cultivation in Japan.
Decades of belief in the original quality of our Japan teas pays off: AIYA is the only tea company in Japan that can offer its teas worldwide as certified organic products.
Our products are EU BIO and JAS (Japan) certified organic. In addition, AIYA has independent branches in each major world region, which can take over the bio-import and offer locally certified organic products.

All of our organic tea products are tested by Eurofins, Dr. Specht Laboratorien GmbH in Hamburg. We are sending a sample of every single production lot to the laboratory, to be tested for possible pesticide residues.
These checks for pesticide residues contain residues from remedies for plant-protection, preservatives or agents for pest control. Thus, we are not only sure that our teas are safe in the light of the foodstuffs and commodities act, you can also be sure that you always get impeccable goods from AIYA.

Since the events in Fukushima (2011), testing our tea for radioactive residues has been standard practice for us. We are proud that since the accident all measured values of our products were in the non-detectable range and therefore uncontaminated. This corresponds to our high standards of quality and safety.
