Back to School Matcha!

Our Story

Our love for matcha was inspired by the travels and goals of our founder, David Kerdoon. While traveling through Asia, David immersed himself in the culture. While there, he was inspired by the extensive use of matcha in Japan. David began to think of different ways this could be integrated into unique products he was seeing all the benefits that matcha had firsthand. Upon returning to America, he noticed people were really only drinking green tea. They were missing out on so many more potential benefits!

At Sencha Naturals, we create Matcha inspired products! We source our Matcha directly from Organic Japanese tea farms. We believe in Green tea For All so we source the highest quality matcha for the best price.

Summer of Mango



A tropical getaway for your taste buds

If you love warm tropical beaches, our tropical mango flavor can transport you there! Vibrant, juicy mango brings the sandy summer beaches to you wherever you are. Maybe you’re in the office during the day? A cool, refreshing iced mango latte is just what you’ll need to fight off the afternoon slump. Or are you on your way to visit with friends? Green tea Mango Mints give your breath a tropical freshness and a great flavor to enjoy. Whatever your summer brings, you can always enjoy the refreshing taste of our Tropical Mango lattes and mints. 

Don’t limit your tropical daydreams to the pool or beach. Bring the tropical beaches with you on the go! Fight dragon breath and enjoy a good for you treat during your long summer days and busy social life. Our mints are great for after a lunch with co-workers or before a night out. Best yet, they combine the flavors of tropical mango with matcha green tea so you’re getting all the benefits of matcha with your favorite tropical flavor. Our canisters can slide easily into your beach bag or work bag so whether it’s the weekend or another Monday, you’re ready to go. If you’re traveling, keep your mints in our resealable mint packets! You get more mints for your money, plus the resealable packets help keep your mints fresh and protected from all the elements. Our resealable mint packages are our favorites for traveling and especially if you’ll be traveling to anywhere with blue waters.

Our green tea mints pack the benefits of green tea perfectly blended with the juicy mango flavor. Matcha delivers a powerful antioxidant punch. Antioxidants are important for our health because they fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals are unstable and can create negative reactions in the body- including attacking the collagen in our bodies (think wrinkles!). One cause of free radicals is from the sun, which is what you want to enjoy all summer long! That’s why matcha’s antioxidant properties make it such a strong contender in adding to your daily dose of wellness. In addition to keeping your breath fresh, you can help your body ward away free radicals- it’s a win-win!

Sitting poolside in the warm summer sun pairs perfectly with an iced cold drink. Instead of reaching for sugary juices or chemical laden sodas, grab an iced matcha latte. Refreshingly cold, iced matcha lattes perfectly blend as your stir together your favorite tropical drink. With our matcha lattes, we use unrefined coconut sugar, and natural ingredients so you can enjoy a better-for-you, tastier alternative that's vegan too! If you don’t want your drink on the rocks, maybe blended is more for you. Simply mix some ice, our matcha latte mix, and water to create a refreshing blended drink. Our matcha latte powder blends smoothly so you feel like a professional barista as you’re mixing in the kitchen. Take your drink poolside and imagine you’re on the beaches of an island, sipping a refreshing latte infused with tropical mangos. It’s the perfect escape! 

One of our favorite parts about our matcha latte mix is getting creative in the kitchen. With hot summer days, we’ve been finding creative ways to cool down our lattes. Check out one of our summer favorites:

Frozen Tropical Mango Smoothie
Ingredients:
1 packet of Tropical Mango Matcha Latte
¼ cup of frozen fruit of your choice (we like a tropical medley like mangos, pineapples, strawberries, bananas, or peaches!)
Several ice cubes  (depends on how thick you want the smoothie)
¼ cup of water, milk or dairy substitute
 
Mix it up:
Mix all of the ingredients together in a blender, blend until smooth and enjoy!

Pocket Mints


Stay Cool with Mints!

New seasons are great for sharing new products specially created with fun, travel, and wellness in mind. Here, the summer fun has just begun! June marks the start of the summer season and our days are at their longest. A favorite for many, summer is time to enjoy the sun, the water, and take those much-needed vacations from school or the office. Some of our favorite summer activities include going to the lake, hanging out in the river, or spending the day at the beach! Keeping cool while you’re enjoying your longer days outside of your busy schedule is important. Even more important, keeping your health a top priority as your social schedule fills up with so many activities. That’s why we’ve taken everyone’s favorite mints and given their packaging a new twist!

New Look, Same Mighty Mint

Our mighty Matcha Green Tea Mints have just been revamped from the outside, just in time for the new season. We’re introducing our Resealable Mint Packets for all our sugar-free flavors! It’s hard to find sugar-free mints that don’t include some type of chemical additive to give it a sugary taste. We’re talking about sucralose and aspartame, some of the most common chemical additives, along with a variety of other scientific names used to hide added artificial sugars. Our mints ditch these for naturally sourced ingredients with a delicious dose of green tea and the mint power to fight dragon breath.

Near, Far-- Wherever You Are

You’ve seen our mints in our eco-friendly canisters which we’ve loved because of their small size and good-for-the-Earth packaging! But what if we told you that our new resealable mint packages come with more mints for a great price? And that our new packaging keeps your mints fresher, longer? That’s why we got creative when designing our new mint packaging! Eat as few or many as you would like and simply reseal the bag when you’re done. It’s also a great way to refill any of your mint containers that you have- just like our favorite teapot mint holder. They’re the best for traveling! The slim size of the mint packages make them great to slide into your carry-on bag for flights, or into your backpack for camping trips or beach days. You’ll even be sure to have enough mints the whole time you’re away on your next adventure.

Our Favorite is Your New Favorite

Throughout the years, our mints have been a fan favorite. Over the years, we’ve expanded our matcha mints from sugar-free to naturally sweetened with coconut sugar. We’ve introduced new flavors so you can choose to stick with your favorite or constantly switch up your mints. Our Green Tea Mints were our very first product as a company so they’ve been a favorite of ours as well! Our sugar-free green tea mints come in four delicious flavors to choose from: pink dragonfruit, tropical mango, moroccan mint, and yuzu ginger. Each one comes in our brand new packaging, just in time to be adventurous with your mints!

Where will your summer adventures take you? Wherever you may go, enjoy 15% off this month on all our sugar-free resealable mint packets.

Matcha Latte Stick Packs

May Matcha On-The-Go!

April showers have brought May flowers! Now it is the time to get outside and enjoy the longer, warmer days that come with spring. Hiking, camping, traveling, all of these activities take us out of our homes and keep us active outdoors. This May, we’re introducing our latest addition to our product line: Matcha Latte Stick packs! Our Matcha Latte Stick packs are going where Matcha has never been before. It’s ready for any spring adventure you may go on!

Have your Latte and Drink it Too

Our new Matcha Lattes have continued to be a fan favorite throughout the seasons since its initial launch. So, we’ve been thinking of new ways to reinvent the wheel! This spring, we wanted to make sure you could have your latte and drink it too, whether you’re in the car or out in nature. We kept our recipe simple by ditching all of the added preservative, artificial ingredients, and added sugars that will spike your blood sugar levels. Instead, the only sugar we use is unrefined coconut sugar. It’s the perfect amount of sweetness without any harmful side effects- in fact, unrefined coconut sugar will help to regulate your blood sugar levels!

More Adventure, Less Preparation

Just as easy to use as our Matcha Latte Mix, our Latte Stick packs come in easy to transport packages that fit in any bag for any adventure. Simply mix any Matcha Latte Stick into your water for a green tea boost any time of day. We use all natural ingredients in all our products, which makes them easy to mix into any drink. We enjoy smooth, creamy matcha lattes that blend without much effort! This is why we’ve formulated our Matcha Latte Stick packs perfectly blend- without needing a blender. Better yet, we like to eliminate the clumps that come from recipes that are loaded with artificial ingredients. Pour, shake, and be on your way!

While the weather heats up and the days grow longer, May brings more opportunity for adventure. From hiking, to camping, to even backpacking- these activities require you to pack light, but pack the essentials. Maybe one of your essential experiences is drinking a hot tea around a fire while you’re out camping with friends. Or your must-pack essentials are healthy snacks and treats while you’re traveling. Now, you can enjoy your favorite matcha latte flavor even if you’re miles away from home. Just like our Matcha Latte mix that you enjoy at home or at the office, we’ve created the best travel companion. Our Matcha Latte Sticks are small and portable enough for any adventure you go on. They fit in all your travel bags or even your pocket if you’re really traveling light!

Sometimes your spring adventure may take you to visit places you have never been before. If you’re traveling by plane, there’s lots of restrictions on what you can bring and the pressure to pack light. Slide on of our Matcha Latte Stick Packs into your carry on and enjoy a great pick me up during long flights. Just as easy as it is when you’re home or on the go, you can treat yourself to a wonderfully creamy vegan matcha latte in the sky.

Some Like it Hot, Others Like it Iced

Sometimes we like our matcha lattes hot, sometimes we like them cold. During those chilly outdoor mornings, you may be craving a warm and creamy matcha latte to kick start your day. They can also be served chilled when you’re working up a sweat out in the hot sun. Mix your favorite matcha latte stick flavor into hot water and immediately sip to enjoy. No extra preparation required! This convenience makes the Matcha Latte Sticks the perfect travel drink with all the health benefits of matcha right at your fingertips!

Healthy Spring in Your Step

One of our favorite parts about spring is getting to enjoy the outdoors with beautiful weather. Outdoor activities, like hiking or climbing, can take a toll on the body so it’s important to replenish yourself with whole, natural ingredients. Our matcha latte sticks are made with high-quality Japanese matcha, which carries health benefits such as antioxidants, more energy, and delicious flavor. Benefits like these will get you from point A to Point B on all your travels feeling your best! Travel can be exhausting with jet lag, poor sleep, and dehydration. Mix all that with the challenge of trying to eat well while you’re constantly in and out of airports and hotels- travel has only become harder! Carry your Matcha Latte Sticks along with you for the perfect afternoon pick me up, or to get your daily dose of health and wellness!

Eat...Drink...Scrub...Coconut Sugar!

Coconut. People are drinking coconut water, cooking with coconut milk, putting coconut oil in their hair. The list goes on, and coconut sugar is no exception. As an unrefined alternative to traditional sugar cane, coconut sugar can replace overly processed white or brown sugar with an easy 1:1 conversion.

So how does coconut sugar fit into your life?

In a Drink

Does the summer heat leave you feeling like you need a cool treat? Swap out the refined sugar in lemonade with the caramel flavor of coconut sugar. Not only does your lemonade look mouthwatering, but you’ve now eliminated refined sugar! See the full recipe on Fettle Vegan’s blog and check out Amber’s plant-based journey as well!

In an Appetizer

A healthier version of a favorite snack, these baked sweet potato fries come from Natural Sweet Recipes, a website created by three sisters with sweet teeth dedicated to healthy living. This sweet potato fry recipe does that justice. Peeled and sliced sweet potatoes are drizzled with grape seed oil, sea salt, cinnamon and coconut sugar for a tasty treat to bake. We love the rich, caramel flavor coconut sugar brings to this recipe. Check out the full recipe!

In a Main Course

Big Tree Farms, the supplier of our organic coconut sugar, posted this delicious recipe to their blog during Thanksgiving, but we love it for all year round. Mary Jane’s Confetti Corn Casserole is from their foodie friend, Mary Jane Edleson of Slow Food Bali. This casserole is filled with bell peppers and celery, but can be made with seasonal vegetables like yellow squash, eggplant, or zucchini too. Coconut sugar is used to create the creamed corn, and it adds a deeper flavor than traditional sugar cane. See the full recipe of Big Tree Farms’ blog.

In a Dessert

When we saw Bakerita’s recipe for chocolate covered strawberry brownies, we knew we had to share it with you. The best part? It’s gluten free and paleo friendly! The mastermind behind Bakerita, Rachel, got rid of refined sugars used in traditional brownie recipes by subbing for coconut sugar. So if brownies filled with dark chocolate chunks and topped with strawberries and chocolate drizzle sounds amazing to you, check out the full recipe!

In a Scrub

Sugar on your skin?! At first it may sound counterintuitive to put sugar ON your skin, but the sugar granules are a soft, natural exfoliator that won’t clog your pores or leave a chemical residue like most exfoliators do. New Leaf Wellness’ Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub is the perfect recipe to cleanse your skin. Making it with coconut sugar takes it one step further by eliminating anything refined! Check it out on their blog

In Products You Buy

Coconut sugar is a simple alternative for refined sugar in many aspects of your life. Cutting out refined sugar shouldn’t only be a homemade option; food companies can be doing their part to create a healthier you. It’s why we made our vegan matcha green tea latte mix and eco-tube green tea mints with coconut sugar. Whether you’re popping a mint on the go or making a sweet latte, you won’t have to worry about refined sugar.

Enjoy 15% off our coconut sugar sweetened collection during the month of August and say goodbye to refined sugar!
