At Shibumi we're here to help you create your daily zen rituals by offering exquisite quality matcha tea from the famous Uji region of Japan alongside other inspirational artistic items that elevate our everyday lives.
Our passion for matcha goes a long way back and for us matcha is more than a tea. It's a strong evocative force that enables us to see more beauty and infuses with power and calm in everything we do. In a nutshell, it's the ultimate creativity drink.
We supply Clearspring brand matcha, which is a British brand founded by a Kiwi from Taranaki, Christopher Dawson.
Chris lived in Japan for more than 20 years passionately involved with authentic Japanese foods which were slowly being eradicated by industrialised food practices. He found new markets for these foods abroad, particularly in the UK and eventually moved to London with his Japanese family to start Clearspring.
We're honoured to represent Clearspring brand matcha in New Zealand and to collaborate with other local and international artists and brands who add meaning and beauty to the modern daily zen rituals.
In 2021, to celebrate our Baltic roots, we've introduced a few Lithuanian design brands - OVO Things natural pure beeswax candles & candle holders and a slow coffee dripper BRO by Crooked Nose & Coffee Stories.
