Kyoto Tea Country

Incense Kitchen

You can experience making matcha-scented incense at our facility.
Our incense releases its fragrance from heating it, not from lighting it like traditional incense sticks. We use fresh matcha directly sourced from local tea factories and tea farmers in Uji, and make each piece of incense by hand. *All of the matcha we use is currently food waste matcha (which is inevitably generated during manufacturing and accumulates between machines and equipment that cannot be sold for consumption).
Our incense is made using wooden Japanese confectionery molds that features rabbit, cherry blossom, and tea motifs, as well as symbols of Uji and Kyoto, making it visually appealing. We are the only facility in the world where you can experience making incense using wooden confection molds and matcha as the only aromatic ingredient.
