About Kiwami Greens
Aojiru (/ah-oh-ji-ru/) is a traditional Japanese greens blend known for its superior nutritional properties. Harvested from the nutrient-dense soil of the southern islands of Japan, we combine Young Barley leaves and Ashitaba greens with fine Matcha and Sencha in the way of “KIWAMI” – masterfully crafted. Our proprietary blend is a smooth, rich mixture of greens created to complement your daily intake of vegetables with the utmost convenience.
Make Kiwami Greens a daily ritual for your modern life.
Young Barley Leaf
Not all Young Barley Leaves are the same. We’re not only particular about their origin, but also about the timing and methodology for picking our leaves. Through sheer persistence – the “Kiwami” way – we hand-pick our leaves one at a time. We also place heavy emphasis on soil and plant breeds for a nutritious barley that’s filled with vitality.
In Japan, it is said that Ashitaba is so strong and vital, “it would sprout again tomorrow even if the bud was pulled off today.” Our Ashitaba hails from Yakushima Island where many bountiful forests still exist, and our farmers use organic farming methods to enable robust, abundant growth.
Commonly used in ceremonial Japanese tea culture, Matcha is becoming increasingly popular in the United States today. However, obtaining high-quality Matcha is an entirely different story. We carefully hand-pick these fresh green tea leaves, which later undergo a millstone grinding process to avoid unnecessary heat damage to achieve high-quality and consistent granularity.
This particular strain of green tea is known for its refined taste and is the most popular traditional tea in Japan. Our Sencha is sourced from Kagoshima, where nutrient-rich soil and sunlight provide a highly beneficial influence. Suitable for everyday routines, this special Sencha is characterized by a flowery aroma that permeates the senses.
As Easy As

Stir the powder until it dissolves into the liquid. You can easily mix it into anything, as Kiwami Greens is completely soluble.

In addition to the powerful ingredients listed above, fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and enzymatically modified isoquercitrin (EMIQ) provide a valuable balance for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. FOS is a naturally occurring carbohydrate that contains a vigorous prebiotic found in a wide variety of vegetables including chicory root and onions. EMIQ is a water-soluble polyphenol produced from plants and developed to be absorbed more easily.
