Matcha, is a product that we could grow here at Light of Day Organics (because Tea is one of the botanicals that we grow) but we do not currently own the equipment necessary to de-vein or to grind the Tencha leaf into a fine powder within the laboratory setting it requires. Therefore, we rely on other certified organic farmers around the globe to grow and process this remarkable product for us. Because of concerns in the news lately re. radiation and heavy metal contamination, each batch of Matcha and the soils they are grown in are tested thoroughly to ensure that we are all enjoying the highest quality, safest matcha available to us today! We hope that you enjoy this product as much as we do!

We do offer our Matcha in CAPSULES too!  Two capsules once a day is equivalent to the 1/2 tsp. (1 gram)  suggested serving size.  These are great for those of use that may not always have the time to prepare the Matcha in a smoothie form.
