Matcha is a specialty tea from Japan. It is a finely grounded tea that went through an arduous cultivation process. The tea tree used in matcha has to be grown in cover shade for 3-4 weeks before harvested. After that, it will be steamed and then cooked in a high temperature furnace. After removing the veins and stems, the tea (now called “tencha”) will be grounded finely into matcha. The result is a tea product with a unique taste, full of umami, earthy, nutty sweetness that no other tea can compare.
In recent years, international wholesalers have sought Vietnamese matcha because its quality has been enhanced to be on par with Japanese matcha, and Vietnamese suppliers offer competitive prices.

1. Why should you choose FGC Vietnamese matcha?
More and more partners are looking for Vietnamese matcha’s suppliers nowadays. FGC is always a good choice because of many reasons. For example:
The best quality
We imported the whole matcha processing lines from reputable suppliers in Japan – Terada Seisakusho Co., Ltd., Nippon Coke. Thus, FGC can supply Vietnamese Matcha tea powder’s quality as good as the Japanese matcha in recent years.
Our clients are satisfied with our product totally because of its verified origin, strictly controlled processing line, attractive packaging designs, delicious taste, and pleasant aromas.
Thanks to the local farms and production plants, our clients in Vietnam and Southeast Asia can get benefits from transportation fees, compared with buying from Japan. Our products have shorter lead time to order, and cheaper delivery cost.
Due to absolutely no preservatives, the green color of Matcha is easily oxidized. It causes the color to fade if left in the air for a long time. We always suggest our clients pack Vietnamese matcha powder in layers-bags, vacuum bags instead of plastic bags. Besides, we also advise them to deliver in open and cool facilities to avoid changing the quality of matcha.
FGC supplies different types of Vietnamese matcha powder at different price levels, from 15$ to 30$. Our clients will have many choices to choose the suitable one for their consumption purposes (food ingredients, beverage ingredients, cosmetics additives, etc.)

2. Vietnamese matcha manufacturing process
To ensure the best quality of Vietnamese matcha products, our staff will harvest tea leaves after covering them to avoid sunlight for about 20 days. Due to the lack of sunlight, the chlorophyll in the tea leaves will increase and make the tea leaves have a darker color, a sweeter taste, and retain more nutrients (especially antioxidants).
After that, the tea leaves will go through many stages of steaming, drying, blow-drying, separating the veins, etc., and then finely ground into a powder by a stone mortar to become matcha green tea powder.
At the FGC factory, we use the most unique and modern technology to produce matcha. We use the Japanese synchronized lines to cover all stages in the production. It maintains the perfect taste and aroma like Japanese green tea powder, however, it can help to increase the production capacity and volume.
We follow strict standards to meet the highest requirements for matcha products. Our stages of making Vietnamese matcha include:
Fresh tea leaves – Washing – Steaming – Cooling (by wind blowing) – Drying 1 – Cutting & crushing –Drying 2 – Primary sifting – Secondary sifting (vacuum sorter) – Tencha – Cool milling – Matcha powder
The Vietnamese matcha production process is described in the following:
Growing tea trees: The most important thing is that FGC controls the tea growing process to ensure tea leaves will not have pesticide residues. Complying with VietGAP & Organic standards, the use of fertilizers and pesticides must be carefully recorded to ensure the safety of health before harvesting.
The tea-growing area is covered with a darknet about 20 to 30 days before harvesting to reduce 90% of sunlight, causing the tea leaves to produce chlorophyll with high intensity, making the tea leaves greener and sweeter than usual.
Harvesting & washing: The best tea leaves are picked manually by our skilled farmers. Tea leaves are then passed through washing machines to remove the remaining soil or dust.
Steaming: Tea leaves will be streamed at high temperatures to inhibit the fermenting process and retain the full bright green color. The tea steam process takes about 15-20 seconds. It must be done early within 4-8 hours after the tea buds are picked from the branches.
Cooling and drying tea: Tea buds are gently cooled by circulating air distributed evenly to dry slowly.
Drying: the tea leaves are dried in a large dryer. At the drying step, they must be dried slowly without increasing the temperature too high.
Cutting and crushing: Dried tea leaves are cut and crushed to make the size of leaves smaller, easier to pass through the next dryer, and vibrating sifter.
After some next steps of the vacuum sorter to separate leaves and stalks, Tencha is collected. Finally, Tencha is milled by an automatic mill line in a cool room with temperature and humidity are strictly controlled 24/7 to maintain the green color of Vietnmese matcha.
