Okuma Teas sources quality shade-grown tencha leaves from farms across the Yame region of Japan - a place that attracts tea connoisseurs from around the world. Nestled high in the mountains of southern Fukuoka, the relatively warm temperatures in the day and the cool temperatures at night allow the tencha leaves to develop a rich umami taste and a unique terroir. Okuma Teas’ premium Matcha products are used throughout the globe to bring superior Matcha flavors to purveyors of fine baked goods, specialty tea beverages, and innovative health foods. Japan produces many varieties of tea from several regions, but it is known throughout the country that Yame teas are exceptional. Refined teas such as Gyukuro and Tencha are expertly cultivated in the region with ideal growing conditions as well as sophisticated, meticulous growing techniques. Okuma Matcha is made by grinding premium Tencha green tea leaves into a fine powder and consumed in its entirety. This allows antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibers, and chlorophyll to be consumed in higher concentration per cup. Unlike typical steeped teas, Matcha contains high amount of Insoluble Fiber. Studies show that Catechins (EGCG), also found in Matcha, lower blood sugar at a much higher rate when combined with both soluble and insoluble fibers.
