Moya Matcha is a brand of authentic Japanese organic matcha grown in the Uji region of Kyoto Prefecture, known for the cultivation of highest quality green tea for over 800 years. The Uji region is famous for its fertile soils and clean water. The green tea plants there have ideal conditions for growth thanks to hills providing good sunlight, frequent mists that protect delicate leaves from frost and high amount of rainfall.
Moya Matcha is meticulously cultivated and harvested on small family-owned organic tea fields. It is then processed locally to assure the quality of freshness to all our grades. Tea leaves are kept in special storage facilities in sub-zero temperatures before they are ground to tea powder. packaged hermetically and dispatched from Japan. This helps preserve all the qualities of the tea leaf and maintain high levels of minerals and antioxidants.
Our quality is confirmed by rigorous standards, EU-organic certification and Japanese organic certificate issued by JONA. This means that Moya Matcha is grown on lands free of pesticides and every batch is carefully checked for potential chemical residue.
There are four types of Moya Matcha tea: premium, traditional, daily and culinary. The matcha types differ not only in terms of the appearance and content of nutrients, but first of all in terms of taste.
