Matcha: an Ippodo Story --

In Matcha: an Ippodo Story, director Michael McAteer transports viewers to Kyoto, Japan for an intimate matcha experience with Ippodo Tea. Owned and operated by the Watanabe family for over three centuries, Ippodo has upheld the culture of matcha since they began handpicking tea in 1717. The short film is the first to document Ippodo's story. It beautifully depicts the cycle of tea from harvest all the way through to the Japanese tea ceremony, and the family at the heart of it all.
