Holy Matcha will be the first high end green tea concept to open its cafe dedicated to traditional Japanese Tea. Located at 3118 University Ave. it will be officially open on Saturday, March 11. Founded by Geraldine Ridaura, she has collaborated with HOMEWORK, San Francisco based architectural firm to bring the concept of Japanese and modern minimalist for the design.
When founder Geraldine Ridaura discovered the specialty stone-ground tea during a trip to Japan in 2014, drawn to its health benefits, she quickly became a devotee. Ridaura knew a matcha-centric café would be a natural fit for her health-conscious hometown, and next week the self-professed “matcha addict and connoisseur” opens her eagerly awaited café dedicated to the storied, and now uber trendy, Japanese beverage.
