A Very Matcha Holiday!


Note: This isn't a sponsored post - I simply adore Encha and their products ๐Ÿ˜Š

If you're looking for a unique and creative gift this year, consider the gift of matcha! As you may know, Encha is one of my favorite companies. They represent many of the values I hold dear and I'm continually inspired by their products. The high quality, attention to detail, overwhelming love and care they pour into their work is nothing short of incredible. Refreshingly authentic!


Besides the actual organic matcha (which is honestly the BEST matcha I've ever had) Encha expanded this year and have so many new fun bundles and products to take your matcha enjoyment to the next level. (I wish these pictures did them justice but I think until you get your hands on them, you can't fully appreciate the beauty. I'm in awe!) I'll share a few of my favorites here, then feel free visit their site for the full list of products and bundles. You can honestly find something for everyone - from a matcha newbie to a long-time fanatic!


Let's start with some serious green eye candy - how gorgeous is this gift wrapping! So much thought and delicate care. The tissue paper, ribbons, and boxes are sure to bring a smile as loved ones open the Encha joy ๐Ÿ˜Š (Check their site for details on how to request this free service right now!)


One of my favorite new additions is the "Encha Flow" matcha pitcher and two small blossom cups - how beautiful to see it in action, pouring that bright, green goodness! Perfect for sharing a special moment of health and love with couples, family, friends, or get-togethers.


The two blossom cups (named Sakura and Ume) are adorable and I love the texture! They're hand-crafted by potters in Japan, and are about half the size of a normal matcha bowl. So natural and earthy - let's take a closer look... ๐Ÿ˜Š


Sakura (pronounced sah-koo-แน™ah) means "cherry blossom" in Japanese, and Ume (pronounced oo-me) means "plum". The Encha Flow and each blossom cup are sold individually, so you can mix-n-match depending on your preference and how many are needed.


If you're looking for some basic everyday tools, you can also find a whisk/scoop set, a whisk holder, and (my very favorite!) matcha bowl. This smooth, black "Encha Zen Matcha Bowl" is the one I use every morning. When I first started drinking matcha I used a soup bowl which worked great, but I found using a Japanese-style matcha bowl (called a chawan) really connected me to the tea. I feel more appreciative and in touch with where the matcha comes from, the tradition behind it, and most of all the farmers in Japan who work so hard to share their passion with the world ๐Ÿ’š

A holiday wish
May we all spread peace this holiday season and beyond. Encourage deeper connections and meaningful conversations. Open your heart and help unify the world with kindness and compassion. Raising a cup of matcha, and wishing joy to you all!
