Encha Ceremonial Grade Matcha Powder

Ceremonial-Grade Encha tea is ground from premium, first-harvest leaves, which are the most tender, plucked each spring from our farm in Uji, Japan. It’s best suited for the ceremonial style of drinking matcha, with water only. The taste is smooth, full-bodied, delicately grassy, and never bitter.

About Ceremonial Grade Matcha

Ceremonial grade matcha powder is the highest grade matcha green tea coming from the tea leaves grown on our organic farm and taken from the first harvest. The first-harvest leaves are the youngest and most tender which also gives them a deeper and more vibrant color due to the higher concentration of chlorophyl. This premium process makes our organic Japanese matcha powder the best ceremonial grade matcha, ideal for mixing with hot water alone.

Our ceremonial grade matcha powder is designed with the highest standards in accordance with the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, called chanoyu. Our traditionally-cultivated Encha matcha powder is meticulously made in stone grinders for the finest quality texture and flavor, and the most authentic experience of any other matcha powder.

Origin

Matcha is grown all over Japan, however the best organic matcha is grown in the Uji region of Japan which is located between the two ancient capitals of Kyoto and Nara in Japan. Uji, Japan has the ideal climate and geographical location, where it gets hot and sunny summers and very cold winters, ensuring the perfect conditions for our highest grade Japanese green tea leaves.

Matcha powders can only come from a special green leaf called tencha, which goes through an extensive growing process before becoming our finest organic ceremonial grade matcha powder, and delivered to your door. 

Our Promise - The Best Matcha Powder

At Encha matcha we strive to provide you with the most premium, high-quality matcha powder, that comes from hand-picked matcha tea leaves; traditionally cultivated, never using pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Our mission is to give matcha lovers and matcha newcomers a rich, complex flavor that is enjoyable and affordable, providing you with the all the benefits and Zenergy that only the best matcha powder can offer.

How to Use Ceremonial Grade Organic Matcha

To make a traditional ceremonial matcha, add 1 teaspoon of Encha Ceremonial Grade Organic matcha green tea powder (the best matcha powder) into a 5oz of hot water (160 degrees fahrenheit). Using a bamboo matcha whisk, add water gradually and continue to whisk until the tea is aerated and fine, and a creamy foam starts to appear on the surface. The matcha tea is now ready to be served and enjoyed. For a matcha latte, just add milk or use our latte-grade matcha and add your choice of milk or milk-substitute. For the best results and flavor when cooking or baking, we recommend using our culinary grade matcha powder.

Health Benefits of Matcha Powder

Starting your day off with Encha Ceremonial Grade Matcha has many health benefits and is an even better option than your normal tea or coffee. Matcha powder has been shown to be very rich in antioxidants, in fact it contains more than 10 times the amount of antioxidants of brewed green tea.

Culinary Matcha vs. Organic Ceremonial Matcha Grades

The difference between ceremonial grade matcha and culinary matcha powders can be found in the way they are harvested, as well as the way they taste and look. Japanese ceremonial matcha powder is the highest grade. It is only taken from the premium first harvest leaves which gives it a more vibrant green hue and a less bitter flavor making it perfect for enjoying according to the ceremonial tradition, with just hot water. Culinary matcha on the other hand is ground from premium second harvest leaves giving it a more earthy flavor with a nutty finish, making it most suitable for cooking, baking, and smoothies. Culinary grade matcha powder has a less vibrant green color, however, the health benefits are equal across all matcha powder grades.

Many expensive matcha powder brands claim to have ceremonial grade powder, when in fact they aren't even shade-grown or using the youngest tea leaves, meaning, you could be paying for ceremonial grade matcha powder and receiving the equivalent of culinary grade matcha. Don't settle for less than the best matcha powder!

Still the Best Matcha

I've been very happily purchasing my Matcha here for many years. But saw that 'new' matcha company advertising like crazy, big name natural doctor pushing it as the end product of years of making deals and finding the best matcha possible ... so I figured I'd reach out and try the new matcha. Maybe I'd missed something ..... Well, the 5-10 different levels of matcha, each costing more than the last one but promising a true connoisseur reward, was a bit amazing, I thought I really must have missed something. So I ordered their best of the best taster pack and a can of the middle of the road matcha that was on par, price wise, for what I was getting at Encha. Well, just receiving my package is where the emperors clothes disappeared and the advertising hype started to melt away. First I noticed my 30 serving container was only 30 gr, not 60gr like Encha. And my variety packages were 1.5gr but called 1 1/2 serving portions, not the 2gr portion that every other matcha company I had ever tried considered a serving size. I went back to the web site wondering how I'd missed that and sure enough that's what they consider a portion, 1gr. So they are basically doubling the price of their (already expensive) matcha (you get half as much per serving at the same price). After my initial grunt and grumble I figured I'd better try it before complaining because maybe it was so good you only need half as much, right.... So I open the tin, removed the little matcha package, opened it and tried to remove the plastic moisture packet covered with powdered matcha that sticks tenaciously to it. I think I can safely say that a good serving of matcha (or more) left the package on my fingers and moisture thingy. And what a mess, the fine powder goes everywhere. Then mixing it as I usually did gave rise to matcha water, as opposed to thick frothy matcha that I was use to, (but as I suspected it would with half as much matcha). Returning to the web site to make sure I didn't do something wrong I did discover that I did not follow their instructions and used twice as much water, so to them matcha is a few sips and on with your day, I guess. So, no more 'new and better', I will be buying Encha for a long time to come. Well , glad to be back on track with Encha.

Good for health

I have tried other brands and came back to this. My suspicion was right, this one is better for health. Good quality matcha! You can’t make this bitter even if you tried. Lol
