Tracing our matcha roots
I don’t know about you, but at OMGTEA we like to know exactly what matcha we’re drinking. We want to know where it came from, who has grown it and what journey it’s taken to get to our cup. That’s why we’re very careful about making sure that OMGTEA Matcha is sourced from Nishio region of Japan.
There are two major regions in which Matcha is cultivated, one is Nishio in the heart of Aichi-prefecture, and the other one is Uji of Kyoto Japan. Some of Japan’s highest quality teas come from Nishio, where the Japanese have been cultivating tea since the 1200’s.
Our OMGTEA comes from Nishio region of Japan.
Nishio’s stable climate, fresh and beautifully clear river waters, fertile soil and situated miles from polluted urban areas means it’s tea leaves are more resiliently grown, green and packed full of nutrients – more so than those found in any other regions of Japan.
The key region for organic cultivation is located 600m above sea level providing a cooler climate. These lower temperatures provide a natural barrier against insects. This is obviously very important since organic production does not use any pesticides and relies on natural fertilizers only.
The matcha farmers in this region are considered among the best in Japan for organic cultivation.
We’re heading out to meet the amazing farmers who cultivate our OMGTEA matcha. So you can be sure that OMGTEA is and always will be top quality, premium grade, and organic matcha – the exact kind of matcha you should be drinking to get maximum benefits.
