Rutin is known as a vital chemical substance for us to lead a healthy lifestyle. Some people take it from a supplement, but is it really healthy way to take rutin from an artificial food? Then you have to find a food that is rich in rutin. Some people believe that Sobacha (Buckwheat Tea) has a lot of rutin in it but it is not. Tartary Buckwheat has more than 100 times rutin than Soba (Buckwheat) has!
Another thing you have to care about is that Tartary Buckwheat should be grown in a clean environment. This video shows us that our high quality Tartary Buckwheat has been grown in a very clean and beautiful place! (Hokkaido, JAPAN) Read more about high quality Tartary Buckwheat Tea!

When you are looking for a Matcha Green Tea on line, you might notice that there is single estate Matcha Green Tea.
Japanese green tea (including Matcha) have been sold by green tea shops. They usually don't have their own green tea farms, but they buy different origin (different farm, region...) green tea leaves from a green tea market. The reason for this is that by blending different origin green tea leaves, they can create a unique taste green tea. Another reason is that they can keep the same taste every year. Chashi (certified green tea blender) is blending green tea leaves. If they use single origin green tea leave only, the tea would have different taste every year. The taste of green tea leaves are affected by climate.
There is no single origin Tencha (what is tencha? Read here!) that is excellent in all (fragrance, color and taste). A Tencha might be excellent for its fragrance, other one might be excellent for its color, The other one might be excellent in its taste. By blending all of them, high quality matcha can be made!

Kukicha is stems of green tea. Kuki meas stems in Japanese language. Cha meas tea in Japanese language. Green tea stems are what is left over after the mail loose leaf green teas (Gyokuro, Sencha, etc) have been processed.
