Encha Organic Matcha-Directly from the Farm in Japan Encha Founder, Dr. Li Gong (Stanford, Ph.D., 2001), discovered our organic matcha farm in his research of organic green tea farms in Japan. Our farmer in Japan switched to organic farming in 1987 and has 32 years of experience farming the best matcha organically. We priced it modestly, by minimizing our cost and directly bringing matcha from the farm. Ceremonial-Grade Encha Organic Matcha Ceremonial matcha traditionally means that tea masters use their best matcha powder for the tea ceremony. Thus, ceremonial matcha should be the highest grade in a matcha collection and will differ across matcha brands. Culinary grade is from second or later harvests with much cheaper cost. In the first harvest of each spring, our farmer selects the most tender, premium quality matcha green tea leaves, and grinds them as our ceremonial matcha green tea powder. It has a purely green color and the smoothest and richest taste to be considered ceremonial grade matcha. Taste: Organic vs. Conventional A well- whisked bowl of ceremonial Encha matcha tea starts with a smooth, clean and refreshingly-grassy taste, follows with a frothy and full-bodied texture, and finishes with a subtle sweet vegetal taste. If you have a sweet tooth, you might not like the grassy note in pure organic matcha with just water. Try matcha as latte. Conventional non-organic matcha uses synthetic chemical fertilizers to make its taste sweeter. Synthetic fertilizers are prohibited by the USDA organic standards. Compared to non-organic matcha of the same grade, organic matcha tends to taste grassier. Delicately grassy is the expected taste for high-quality ceremonial organic matcha such as Encha. Benefits and Content of Encha Ceremonial Matcha The recommended serving size of Encha is one level teaspoon, about 2 grams of matcha powder. Adjust it to suit your needs. One serving of Encha matcha powder contains ~240 mg of antioxidant catechins (including 120 mg of EGCG), ~60 mg of caffeine, ~24 mg of theanine and only 8 calories. Encha Organic Matcha Plants Shaded for about 3 Weeks before Harvest One unique farming technique for Encha Organic Matcha is to shade the green tea plants for about 3 weeks before harvest. It is shading that makes the plant grown more mentally calming theanine. It is the unique combination of mentally calming theanine + moderate caffeine in Encha that helps create the experience of calm energy without jitter and longer mental focus without crash. About 12% of the content in Encha Organic Matcha powder is the powerful antioxidant Catechins. That is a very high amount in a natural plant product. Its antioxidant properties might help prevent diseases, slow aging, reduce UV damage and acne, improve skin smoothness, stimulate metabolism, and enhance overall immunity. Not all matcha plants, even in Japan, are grown with the same soil quality, shading or organic farming techniques. Encha Organic Matcha Leaves Ground into Fine Powder after Removal of Stems Another unique technique in making Encha Organic Matcha is to remove the stems of the leaves before grinding. Traditionally, workers painstakingly removed the stems by hand. Nowadays, it is much easier, making pure organic matcha affordable. First, the fresh leaves are steamed dry on the day of harvest to prevent oxidation. Then, leaves are cut into smaller pieces and blown by air onto a two-deck conveyor belt. Lighter pure leaves are blown onto the upper deck. The heavier stems settle to the lower deck. Afterwards, we manually pick out any remaining stems from the pure leaves. Finally, we grind the pure leaves into super-fine Encha organic matcha powder. Encha Farmer and Founder carefully evaluate all high-quality leaves from each harvest. The most tender leaves of each spring are used for Ceremonial-grade Encha. The standard high-quality leaves of each spring are used for Latte-grade Encha. The best leaves of the 2nd harvest (late June) are used for Culinary-grade Encha. Make Your Own Encha Organic Matcha Beverage Enjoy a traditional matcha tea experience with Ceremonial-grade Encha Organic Matcha, hand-made matcha bowl and matcha whisk. Enjoy pouring Encha Organic Matcha over iced coconut or other milk; Or, froth a cup of hot Encha matcha latte. Simply, shake Encha powder with cold water + ice cubes. Or, shake with water first and then add milk to shake thoroughly as iced Encha latte.
