Cacao Coconut Mints + LattesMatcha Made in Heaven

It’s love at first sip. Creamy, indulgent cacao sweeps you off your feet while tropical coconut delivers you on the island oasis you’ve been dreaming of. The grassy notes of matcha bring you back to your next sip. It’s the matcha combination you never realized was missing until now. Cacao Coconut is here in both our Matcha Latte mix and in mints!

Be Prepared to Fall in Love

We wanted to re-imagine our matcha blends and find something unique, perfectly sweet and packed full of healthy nutrients. This led us straight to cacao and coconut, bringing together our most unique and delicious flavor combination yet! The chocolate flavor in the latte blends together with one of our signature flavors, coconut, making it taste as though you’re sipping your favorite hot chocolate. Only there’s no refined sugars and tons of good-for-you vitamins! Cacao Coconut comes in mint form as well, with a slight twist to the flavor. A mint fit for dessert, it will leave your breath fresh with the slight hint of minty fresh on the finish. They’re so good, you’ll want to reach for one more!

Sweet Deal

We chose high-quality cacao. Normal cocoa powder undergoes chemical processing and roasting, which in turn, strips the cacao plant of antioxidants and flavanols. Both of these lost nutrients help to support a younger, healthier you. Raw cacao has an amazing nutrient dense profile. With up to 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries, source of iron, and packed full of magnesium which helps support a healthy heart and brain, there’s a lot of health packed into this delicious treat.

Perfect for Two

Bring Cacao Coconut Mints to share after a dinner or if you need a mid-day sweet treat! Our mints are a favorite for sharing. Our Cacao Coconut mints blend together the sweet indulgence of chocolate with the tropical breeze of coconut, finished off by a tingling mint sensation. These mints will leave your breath fresh for hours as well as satisfy your sweet tooth without any added sugars!

Share the Love

For the chocolate or coconut lover in your life, share Cacao Coconut Matcha Latte Mix & Mints with them! In the month of February, everything Cacao Coconut flavor is 20% off.

Share the love with a friend!

New Year, New You!

It’s time to set your goals for the new year. Whether that’s to resolve to be healthier or to finally complete that project you’ve been working on, January is the time to reset and re-focus. With flu season here, it’s easy to catch a cold after the busy holiday season. Instead of choosing a sugar-laden fizzy drink, opt for something that will support your immune system! Green Tea +C combines natural immune supporting ingredients with matcha to provide everything you need in order to fight any cold.

Ginger Goodness

Although we love to enjoy ginger on its own, we use ginger in our Green Tea +C recipe for its anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger is also naturally anti-bacterial, so it can help support your immune system fight off foreign invaders. This way you can start your year off healthy, knowing you have the immune support to back you up.

Amazing Acerola

When we think vitamin C, we typically think oranges. While oranges do provide a great dose of vitamin C, we’ve found its powerhouse counterpart, the acerola cherry. Packed with more vitamin C than an orange, this tiny but mighty cherry gives your immune system about 300% the daily value of vitamin C.

Mix It All with Matcha

Matcha is our staple immune support favorite. Antioxidant rich, green tea supports overall healthy body functions while helping to fight free radicals. This takes the pressure off your immune system so our other natural cold fighting ingredients can help you feel better in no time. Green Tea is also beneficial overall in strengthens your immune system. Even if you’re feeling your best, enjoying a cup of Green Tea +C will help keep your immune system strong and functioning properly. Plus, it’ll give you a nice energy boost to tackle your New Year goals.

We use only whole food ingredients, never artificial ingredients, and we ditched the sugar and replaced it with natural sweeteners. For your immune system to perform at its top function, ingredients like sugar just slow it down. When using natural ingredients that are laden with vitamins, there’s no need to add artificial ones. Natural immune support tastes great and promotes healthy immune function. It’s a win-win for your New Year.

15% Off Pure Matcha

Our Premium Matcha Powder and Culinary Matcha Powder are also powerful aids to have on hand when your immune system goes south. Both are of the highest quality and each is the perfect compliment to either your morning drink routine or to your favorite baking treat. Replace your morning coffee with a homemade matcha latte, or just mix with water and enjoy! There are so many ways to add a boost of wellness with matcha we love adding it to smoothies and our favorite baked goods. Your immune system and overall health will thank you!

Fall brings new colors to trees, cooler weather, and the rapid approach of the holidays. With the changing of the leaves, brings out our favorite fall spices. It's just the flavor switch you need to get you in the spirit of fall. Pumpkin, cardamom, ginger and so many more fall spices have arrived to spice up your palate. Plus, you'll be able to support your body and healthy habits with no chemical additives, sweeteners, or artificial ingredients!

Latte Lovin’

Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, cardamom, peppercorn, turmeric We love enjoying a hot latte during colder weather. Piping hot steam drifting out of your cup carrying a delicious fall scent, a mixture of all your fall favorites. The inviting warmth of a perfectly crafted latte is much needed when the weather takes a dip towards the cooler temperatures. Our finely ground matcha powder creates the perfect pair to mix in with our delicious fall spices. Bombay Chai and Pumpkin Spice are top picks for fall days. A favorite tip is combining Bombay Chai with your favorite milk to mix up a creamy Bombay Chai Latte. If Pumpkin Spice is what you look forward to every fall, sip happily knowing there's no artificial ingredients or chemicals. Just pure matcha latte goodness.

Spiced Sweetness

Fall spices can be sweet too. Our green tea mints are perfect to slide into your jacket pocket during cool fall mornings.

There’s something for everyone, which is why we’ve created the perfect spiced fall green tea mints, minus the coconut sugar! Still just as delicious but more of an emphasis on the spice, our fall inspired flavors in our Green Tea Mints brings fall into one tiny mint.

B The Change, Volunteer!

Giving Back!

Part of our mission and why we became a B Corp, is because we agree with the idea that we should give back, make our community better and be a positive force and influence for change. A part of that is donating to causes that are near and dear to our hearts, but also getting out in our community and physically putting in the time and effort to give back. 

Kindred Spirits Care Farm

In July, the Sencha Naturals team set out to volunteer for an amazing non-profit called Kindred Spirits Care Farm. The mission of Kindred Spirits Care Farm is to promote compassion, cooperation and connection to the earth, animals and each other through sustainable care farming. They do this in part by maintaining and creating care farms. A care farm is where people are welcome to come and heal by participating in farm activities in whatever way they can. The very act of participating, being included, being in nature, and having a meaningful task to accomplish can be incredibly healing.  Kindred Spirits aims to offer this to kids, to veterans, and people recovering from physical illness and many others.

For the day, Sencha was able to volunteer at Canoga Park High School, a High School in Los Angeles Unified School district that is revamping its dated agricultural program to focus more on STEM and veterinary sciences, meaning the students will be able to learn how to care for the animals properly.

That was a lot of Mulch!

It feels great to accomplish something that will help these student learn and make them happy when they come back to new and improved facilities. We spread mulch over a large area that would become the pen for animals such as pigs and goats. In addition to moving a mountain full of mulch, we also cleaned and threw away garbage and debris, and planted a tree that would shade the pen. Looking back on the experience for everyone, it was very hot, tiring and a lot of work, but overall we had a good time and we were proud of what we accomplished together!

Volunteer or get involved with Kindred Spirits!

We hope to volunteer more with Kindred Spirits in the future and see how the farms improve! If you want to volunteer, Donate or go to any of their local events, visit the Kindred Spirits Care Farm website. Karen The executive director was helpful in coordinating the volunteer opportunity and we can tell she loves doing what she does and loves the animals.

Matcha is the heart & soul of all our products

Where it all Began

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!

But what is matcha? Matcha is shade grown green tea where the bright green leaves are steamed, dried, and then ground into a fine powder. This results in matcha retaining all its nutrients and, due to its powdered state, being incredibly versatile as well. The end result is getting your matcha green tea fix anytime, anywhere, with ease and convenience.  Since then, we are happy to incorporate matcha into so many great products that we love.


Green Tea Mints

Have you ever met a mint without sugar? If you haven't, then you've yet to try our sugar-free Green Tea Mints! Green tea helps to fight bad breath and helps to prevent the bad breath from returning! Our mints don't need artificial sweeteners to be powerful—they pack a mighty punch to dragon breath on their own! Artificial sweeteners can spike your blood pressure and leave you craving more sugar throughout the day. The only side effect our mints have are fresh breath and the benefits of green tea. Plus, we think you're sweet enough.

Green Tea Mints sweetened with coconut sugar

Fresh breath is important. Whether you’re in a meeting, hanging out with friends, or on a first date, you’ll want to have fresh breath. When mints have too much-added sugar, it outweighs the benefit of fresh breath. Our matcha green tea mints were formulated to ditch the sugar that doesn’t help, but we added in sugar that gives our mints a sweet taste yet still is a good treat for you! Unrefined coconut sugar has a low glycemic index which means they won't spike your blood sugar but help to add a sweet finish to our mints.  

Matcha Lattes

Matcha Lattes have continued to be a fan favorite throughout the seasons ever since its initial launch. We always keep our recipe simple by ditching all of the added preservatives, artificial ingredients, and added sugars. We believe whole nutrition is the best treat for your body. Plus, all that sugar will spike your blood sugar levels, leading to sugar crashes later on in your day! Instead, the only sugar we use is unrefined coconut sugar. It’s the perfect amount of sweetness. In fact, unrefined coconut sugar has a low glycemic index so it won't spike your blood sugar label

Our favorite part about our lattes? Delicious flavors and the choice to drink hot or cold. Depending on your mood or the weather, it’s in your hands what morning matcha latte you’ll create.

100% Japanese Matcha Powder

Our matcha powder is one mighty mix that you can add to a variety of creations. Although we’re a fan of sipping traditional matcha tea with nothing added, matcha powder can be used for so much more. Our premium grade organic Japanese matcha powder can be enjoyed simply or used in your favorite latte. Our culinary grade matcha powder is perfect for adding an interesting twist to any of your favorite recipes. Matcha brownies? Matcha pancakes? The sky's the limit for what you can make.

Green Tea+C

Before you reach for a fizzy immune booster, watch out for hidden artificial sugars! Our first ingredient is organic matcha green tea, not sugar. We believe that nutrition should come from whole food ingredients, not synthetic vitamins. Your immune system craves vitamins and nutrients that you can’t get from fizzy drinks packed with sugar. Green Tea+C is made with whole leaf green tea, acerola cherry, and supporting herbs to help you stay well. Stay hydrated and healthy the natural way.

Best Quality Ingredients

As always, our products are always vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Whole food nutrition is not only delicious but the best for your body, which is why we only use the best quality ingredients for our products. Save 15% sitewide from now through September 30th.
