Additionally to CERES, a certificate confirming organic grade of our tea, we have made voluntarily a testing for heavy metals residues at a professional laboratory (SAL Ltd, Manchester, UK). We want to be sure we deliver a safe and healthy product to you.
The matcha was tested for lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium. The results are: lead: 0.05mg/kg, arsenic: 0.05mg/kg, mercury: 0.01mg/kg and cadmium: 0.01mg/kg. This content is much below the accepted levels of these metals for this kind of food, as checked with EU Regulations no 1881/2006 amended also by no 165/2010.
