Encha Founder Dr. Li Gong (Stanford Ph.D. 2001) found our organic matcha farm in his discovery journey among many organic green tea farms in Japan. Our farmer in Uji, Kyoto, Japan switched to organic farming in 1987, with 30 years of experience farming the best matcha organically. Encha Founder and Farmer worked together to create three grades of Encha pure organic matcha to best suit the typical taste preferences for drinking matcha as tea, latte or in smoothie and dessert. We hope you enjoy the natural taste as well as calm energy and antioxidant benefits from drinking your cup of Encha. We also hope that our collective demand for organic matcha and other superfoods help more farmers go organic. All grades of Encha Organic Matcha are USDA-certified organic, non-GMO, no preservatives, and naturally gluten-free and vegan. Radioactivity was never detected in Encha Organic Matcha as our farm is in the mountains in Kyoto prefecture in Southwest Japan, 800km away from Fukushima site. Our no-radioactivity report and organic certificate are in the last image on the top.Encha’s mini individual matcha packets are perfect for keeping at the office, taking on the go, and sharing with friends.
Encha is the only brand that offers a higher-quality latte-grade matcha using 1st-harvest pure organic matcha grown on our farm in the Uji mountains of Kyoto, Japan. The result is a smoother and greener matcha latte.
Latte-grade Encha nutrition: each packet contains two grams of Encha organic matcha powder, which contains ~240 mg of antioxidant catechins (including 120 mg of EGCG), ~60 mg of caffeine, ~24 mg of theanine and only 8 calories.
You can easily prepare Encha matcha latte packets on the go. For iced matcha, just add the matcha powder to a bottle with ice and water and vigorously shake it. After that, add milk and shake it again. For hot matcha, add the powder to hot water and whisk or froth it. After that, add milk for a creamy and smooth Encha organic matcha latte.
All Encha matcha is USDA-certified organic (certificate in the last image). No pesticide, no synthetic chemical fertilizer, non-GMO. No radioactivity (report in the last image). No lead (at CA Prop 65 limit; included in the ConsumerLab report).
