Rooted in Japanese Tradition

This transformative cultural encounter guides us to be present and immersed in the deeper world around us, with every sensory wide open. It’s minimalistic approach and succinct teachings infuse us with greater kindness and shift our paradigm to a holistic way of thinking, rather than a dualistic one. When we embody Zen as a way of being, we are honoring life itself as a ceremony - with each moment, each practice.

Behind the Brand

The meaning of Chafinity
“Cha-” directly translates to tea | “-finity” means having definable limits in its nature of existence

Our tea is grown on a small family farm, focusing on quality of excellence over massproduction. Chafinity orders in small batches to provide our customers the freshest of tea, harvested only once a year.
Our brushstrokes express the humble Japanese culture of wabi-sabi, embracing the beauty of imperfection - to cherish our unpolished selves; here and now, just as we are.
The gold flecks represent the ‘shirasu’ ash from Sakurajima, an active volcano in Kagoshima that helps produce a rich finish to our mineral-packed soil. Good health starts from good soil. Good soil nurtures healthy crops. In return, healthy crops provide nutrients for a healthier you. Can you spot the ladybugs ? Our family farm is committed to all-natural farming techniques, avoiding all use of pesticides. Ladybug are released into the field for aphid-control.

The Humble Travelers

It all started with a trip back home to Japan...

Founder’s Story

"Coming Back Home"

It all started with a trip back home to Kagoshima, Japan. After years of exposing my body and mind to the hustle and grind of the highly stressful work environment I had created for myself, my soul was longing for a change of pace.

Upon arriving in Kyoto, my wife, Jenn, and I decided to engage in a traditional chanoyu (Japanese tea ceremony)… The experience that followed opened the door to a whole new world that felt both foreign, yet familiar, as we explored the art of chanoyu from the guidance of a true tea master.

With our minds clear and focused, feeling grounded and connected to the land around us, we set out to visit my mother. She wanted to reconnect us with an old family friend that also resided in our homeland of Kagoshima… Little did we know, this pre-ordained meeting would change our lives for the better and set us down a new path towards a common goal.

If you have never been to Kagoshima, you must add it to your travel list. Known as “the land of resources”, Kagoshima sits in southwestern Japan with a beautiful landscape that consists of rolling hills and mountains, Sakurajima, one of the most active volcanoes in Japan, and Yakushima, a lush, green island home to Japan’s oldest living trees.

And then there are the old family farms… Tucked away in the mountains, right outside of Kagoshima City, you’ll find many farms that have been passed down from generation to generation. Nestled in a quiet valley, surrounded by other tea farmers, was Sakamoto-san’s farm. As we turned down the drive and rounded the corner, we saw Sakamoto-san walk out of his barn, smiling as he came to greet us.

From the first moment we met, we could feel the deep connection that spanned generations and generations. Sakamoto-san opened his farm, his home, and his heart to us as we explored the rich fields of matcha he was preparing to harvest in a few weeks. Every detail had been thoughtfully planned, down to the organic soil he cultivated himself… This was no ordinary matcha farm, and Sakamoto-san was no ordinary tea farmer.

It was no coincidence that my mother wanted us to meet this man and his family. It was on this trip that my dream of one day starting a matcha brand began coming to life. Binded by our common goal of sharing the healing power of matcha with the world, giving back to the community, and spreading the rich history of matcha, a partnership was born. This journey is about more than business, it is about fulfilling a destiny.

I invite you to join us in the intentional pursuit of this journey of truth, culture, and wellness. With the spirit of Kaizen, may we forever embrace the ever-lasting process of evolution and growth, as we reach for our higher health, for our higher selves.

With love & honor,
Kentaro Chiba
