Sourcing matcha from Japan is generally considered the safest option. Japan has strict regulations and quality control for tea production, ensuring the safety of matcha leaves.

Reputable Japanese matcha brands conduct regular testing for contaminants, including lead. Look for brands that provide third-party testing information for added assurance.

There are concerns about matcha from China regarding lead contamination. That’s because China burns almost half the world’s coal, leading to heavy metals, such as mercury and lead, being released into the atmosphere. Exercise caution and find a reliable supplier that conducts thorough testing for contaminants. If considering matcha from China, research and find a reputable supplier with verifiable testing results for contaminants like lead.
