Our Guiding Light
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.
The Humble TravelersIt all started with a trip back home to Japan...
Founder’s Story"Coming Back Home"
Their journey into matcha and green tea began in a rather magical way. Prior to starting Chafinity, Kentaro lived an unhealthy lifestyle that consisted of eating poorly, drinking alcohol, and working in a highly stressful job. This is where their first trip to Japan sparked a connection to their roots to live a more purposeful life. After experiencing a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto, Japan, they realized that matcha was being misrepresented in America.
Through Kentaro’s family connection in Kagoshima, Japan, we connected with a green tea farmer that valued organic farming and wellness. This green tea farmer happened to reside in the same village in Kagoshima, Japan, as Kentaro’s family and ancestors. This was no longer just about business, as this journey was about fulfilling a destiny.
Health + Wellness
Understanding that life is about making conscious choices. The mindfulness practice of choosing consciously of what we put inside of our bodies whether it is foods, thoughts, activities or relationships. By constantly cleansing and detoxing our bodies, we are able to have the opportunity to become a bit more sensitive energetically in order to connect inwards to our hearts.
We are all made up of energies. Hence, humans cannot keep taking from Mother Earth, as we in return need to give back to balance out energies. As humans continue to consume and take, we need to replenish the soil back with minerals and nutrients.
The founders immerse themselves in Japanese history and culture. As a student of Chanoyu (Japanese tea ceremony) under the teachings of Omotesenke, they are able to encompass tea as a way of life. A cup of tea brings people together. And through tea, we are able to share knowledge about the truths of life.
‘Kaizen’ - the japanese proverb meaning the ever-lasting process of evolving and growing. They have a passion for being students of life in order to raise the collective consciousness.
