Encha Latte Grade Pure Organic Matcha

Matcha Latte Grade from First Harvest

Matcha latte is a great way to enjoy matcha for people who prefer a creamy and sweet taste. Whisk or froth the matcha powder with water first and then add a healthy choice of milk. To achieve a green and smooth cup of matcha latte, we picked the standard high-quality first harvest organic matcha from our farm in Uji, Japan as latte grade Encha. You do not need ceremonial grade matcha for matcha latte. 

Encha is the only matcha brand offering a latte grade using first harvest pure and organic matcha powder. We want to support people to make sugar-free organic matcha latte. Pure almond, coconut or other vegan non-dairy milk has very little sugar content. Most businesses use 2nd or even 3rd harvest matcha to make latte and add lots of sugar, or even worse, pre-mix their matcha with sugar. That's why we choose first-harvest organic matcha powder, which tastes much smoother. 

Latte-grade Encha is a versatile all-purpose choice if you want to buy one cost-effective first-harvest organic matcha, for making matcha latte, matcha tea, iced matcha, energy shake or protein powder shake.

You can request one free mini-Encha single packet sample in Ceremonial grade, by entering such request in "Order Notes" after you click "Add to cart".

 Ingredient:
  • Pure matcha green tea powder. USDA certified organic. 
  • No preservatives. Non-GMO. Gluten-free. Vegan. 
 Servings:
  • Serving size: 1 level tsp/2 bamboo scoops = about 2.0 grams (adjust to suit your needs)
  • Servings per 60g packet: 30 servings (last 15 days if two a day; 1 month if one a day)
  • Enjoy one cup of Encha at breakfast and one after lunch. 

Taste:

  • Almond Matcha Latte: a hot almond matcha latte using latte-grade Encha maximizes the nutty aroma of almond and smooth taste of Encha with a beautiful savory texture. No bitterness. You can froth it longer to make it very foamy and say bye to cappuccino forever. You can also blend it cold and pour it over ice, super-refreshing!
  • Coconut Matcha Latte: for people who like it fruity, coconut matcha latte is the way to go, especially iced. Coconut and Encha are a divine combo for iced matcha latte or iced coconut milk matcha tea
  • You can also drink latte-grade Encha as matcha tea just with water. It will taste slightly stronger and astringent than ceremonial-grade Encha, but still smooth.

Benefits of Matcha and Amount per Serving of 2 Grams of Encha:

  • Catechins: ~240mg (includes 120mg EGCG), a powerful antioxidant.
  • Theanine: ~24mg, a precious amino acid almost unique to matcha. It may enhance mental calmness and focus.
  • Caffeine: ~60mg ( = ~2/3 of an 8 oz cup of coffee). Improves alertness and energy level.
  • The unique combination of caffeine and theanine may have the effect of making you feel alert and calm at the same time without jitter and sustaining the mental focus without crash. We call it Zenergy. Studies show its effects on improving mental clarity and cognitive performance. 
Origin: Uji, Japan
Harvest: 1st harvest (May), using high-quality, organically grown, matcha leaves
GrindingDried leaves are refrigerated in the optimal temperature and ground into fine powder when we need it (usually on quarterly basis). Then it is air-shipped from our farm to Encha warehouse in California and stored in product refrigerators. 

Storage: To avoid matcha powder puffing out, tap the Encha packet before opening or closing. Gently pinch the air out and seal tightly to close. This will help minimize air and moisture (oxygen and moisture will gradually oxidate matcha). Encha packet is very thick and blocks light effectively. Store your Encha packet in the refrigerator or in a dry, cool, dark place. 

If you open and close a packet daily, finish it within 1 month ideally.

Instruction: Video in the last image for 5 ways to make Encha organic matcha latte.

    1. Using a bamboo whisk: Whisk 1 tsp Encha powder with 2oz hot or cold water in a bowl/wide mug first, until well mixed (~10 s). Then add 6oz milk to whisk more. For serving size greater than 8oz, adjust accordingly. 
    2. Using an electric frother: Froth 1 tsp Encha powder with 2oz hot or cold water in a mason jar/narrow mug first, until well mixed (~10 s). Then add 6oz milk to froth more. Stir the powder to avoid sticking before turning on the frother.
    3. Shake iced Encha latte in a bottle: This is the simplest. No special tools needed. Use a water bottle with cold water and ice cubes. Add 1 tsp of Encha powder or 1 mini-Encha packet. Shake vigorously (~10s). Then add milk to shake more. 
    4. Encha e-Swirl matcha latte art: Whisk 1 tsp Encha in 2oz hot water (160°F) in Encha Blossom cup or a cappuccino cup. Steam or whisk almond or soy milk to have smooth microfoam without big bubbles. Pour high first into the matcha tea, and then lower the sprout to create artful patterns.
    5. Encha snow-white matcha latte: Froth 1tsp Encha powder with 2oz hot water first in a mason jar or mug. Froth the hot milk separately to create thick, fluffy foam. Pour the milk using a spoon to stop the top foam. Then transfer the white foam to the top of the drink. For extra fun, sprinkle Encha powder on the top. 
    6. Bonus: Coco-Encha: Iced Coconut Milk Matcha
