World Thinking Day, formerly ‘Thinking Day’, is celebrated annually on February 22 by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts since 1926. It’s also celebrated by Scout and Guide organisations and some boy-oriented associations around the world.
World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship, speaking out on issues that affect girls and young women, and fundraising. Here at OMGTea, we think it’s a good moment to tell you the story around our Matcha and spread the word about it.
In 2010 my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Watching my mother fight the disease made me realise that the most important thing in life is family, friends and health so I decided that I wanted to do something positive to help and became involved in supporting some ground breaking research which amongst other things highlighted the benefits of antioxidants in our diets. Green tea is renowned for its healing properties due to an abundance of antioxidants amongst other things.
“I wanted my mum to drink the green tea with the most antioxidants and so I tasked myself with the finding it. With it’s amazing health and healing properties an astonishing level of antioxidants Organic Matcha Green Tea was that tea. My mum and I started drinking it immediately.
I felt so passionate about its amazing health benefits and how it made us feel that I founded OMGTEA to help spread the word about this miracle green powder. Mum and I drink Matcha daily and have never looked back!”

Moreover, this year world thinking day’s theme is GROW and Matcha is very linked to this word. Because it is the way it is grown that makes Matcha what it is. Being grown shaded in bamboo during 4 weeks before it is harvested massively increases the production of Chlorophyll in the tea leaves.
At the end, consuming Matcha provides a long lasting energy boost and its ability to promote a state of relaxed awareness. This sense of well-being is why OMGTEA has become essential part of our customer’s daily routine – giving them a natural boost for hours, the perfect way to start the day.
We source OMGTEA from most respected and reputable matcha supplier in Japan who have won many awards for their high standards of organic matcha farming and production.
Our trip to Japan to visit our matcha farmers is a great way to find out more about our ethics and mission at OMGTea.
