OMGTea has great taste awards across their entire range of products and has been awarded the highly coveted Great Taste Producer status by the Guild of Fine Food. Their AAA+ Grade Matcha was also the only matcha to be awarded a 3-Star Great Taste Award in 2022.

OMGTea comes from the Kagoshima prefecture in Japan. Kagoshima is on the southern island of Kyûshû, known for its lush vegetation and unspoilt landscape. The warm, humid climate provides the perfect conditions for growing matcha. Kagoshima is a volcanic island and as such has extremely nutrient-rich soils, at least eleven active volcanoes continue to provide the valuable minerals that help these extraordinary tea plants grow. Such optimum conditions enable the cultivation of the best quality organic matcha and it has been cultivated here for over 800 years.

OMGTea is a business with a big beating heart and quality is of paramount importance to them, which is not surprising when considering how the business started.

In 2010 OMGTea’s Founder Katherine Swift’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer which led her to become involved in the ground-breaking research of one of the world’s leading genetic & cell biologists.

This research highlighted the benefits of antioxidants in our diets. Green tea is renowned for its health benefits due to an abundance of antioxidants. Katherine wanted her mum to drink the green tea with the highest level of antioxidants and with an astonishing level of antioxidants, organic matcha green tea was that tea.

Katherine felt so passionate about matcha that she founded OMGTea in 2014.
