Another consideration is that matcha is the only kind of tea that uses the entire leaf and therefore, it offers health benefits and environmental advantages that other varieties of tea do not. Furthermore, by using the whole leaf, matcha requires less waste than other types of tea, which only use part of the leaf and only for an extract with the bag or leaves discarded after use.
The Healthy Life Foundation
OMGTea supports The Healthy Life Foundation, a charity that funds research into age-related disease. The charity was founded by OMGTea founder Katherine Swift and has already raised more than £500k and supported 2 key pieces of research that have the potential to improve quality of life globally. You can find more information on the HLF website.
We're a small team but we are proud to have created a work environment that is inclusive, supportive, and fun.
Supporting good physical and mental health is at the core of OMGTea’s values and to support employees, the company offers flexible working and a monthly matcha allowance.
