Hokkaido, Japan -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/13/2017 -- Gary Lawson, owner of Ocha & Co., announced that the company's matcha green tea is highlighted in the 2017 Harper's Bazaar's Christmas Gift Guide. Ocha & Co.'s matcha green tea is certified organic and has garnered rave reviews from consumers around the world.
"We sell some of the best quality Japanese green teas and matcha to be found outside of Japan," said Lawson. "Our teas are sourced from award-winning organic plantations."
The company's organic Japanese matcha is a versatile, premium tea that can be enjoyed as a beverage any time of the day and it's equally appropriate for use in drinks such as smoothies. Ocha & Co. matcha tea is stone ground in the traditional way and prepared in small batches to ensure freshness and flavor.
The company's tea has the additional advantage of being blended by the winner of the 46th Japanese Ministry of Agriculture Tea Competition (2016), the most prestigious tea competition in Japan.
Tea lovers can also experience the flavorful Japanese Kyoto Uji Matcha green tea powder, a high-grade variety used for the Japanese tea ceremony. Ocha & Co. also offers a regular matcha green tea powder that's ideal for everyday drinking and can be used in a variety of culinary dishes, smoothies, lattes and even ice cream.

Matcha tea has a long and distinguished history dating back centuries. It's low in calories and modern research indicates a single serving of matcha is nutritionally equivalent to 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea and credits green tea with more than 137 times more antioxidants than ordinary tea.
The Ocha & Co. artisanal matcha green tea featured in the highly anticipated and esteemed Harper's Bazaar' Christmas Gift Guide is ample evidence of the tea's taste and premium quality.
