Matcha is the finely ground powder of specially grown green tea. In Japan, Matcha has a long tradition for always being the tea of choice for emperors, monks and samurais. The Japanese tea ceremony centres itself on the preparation, serving and drinking of Matcha. KISSA combines flair and sustainability with the know-how of centuries, presented with a modern twist.

KISSA founder, Thomas M. Grömer, has been dedicated to tea since 1995. His passion is Matcha and green tea. His vision is to bring the unexplored treasures of Japan - and their secrets of a healthy life of vitality - to Europe whilst to enthuse people for it.
