Katherine Swift

This research highlighted the benefits of antioxidants in our diets. Green tea is renowned for its healing properties due to an abundance of antioxidants. Katherine wanted her mum to drink the green tea with the highest level of antioxidants and with an astonishing level of antioxidants, organic matcha green tea was that tea. She felt so passionate about matcha that she founded OMGTea. Katherine’s personal story, her passion and this research makes OMGTea unique.
