This company is fully compliant with the US National Organic Program (NOP). Matcha Ninja also produces Transaction Certificates (TC) for each batch of matcha which guarantees traceably and organic security of each specific batch made.
Independent Lab Analysis
Each batch of matcha is independently tested for heavy metals and pesticides by Eurofins laboratories, the world leader in food, pharma and environmental laboratory testing and the market leader in agroscience, genomics and product testing services with facilities all over the world.
Unfortunately, sometimes simply choosing an organic matcha these days is not enough. Many farms are exposed to industrial pollution because of their geographic location. Although this company sources from a high altitude pristine location they still check every batch!
High levels of not only lead but other potentially dangerous metals are found in lesser quality matcha. This products is tested for Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, Chromium, Cadmium, and all pesticides. The labs produce Certificates of Analysis for both pesticides and heavy metals on each batch of our matcha.
Grade + Purity
Matcha Ninja is a first harvest ceremonial grade matcha. This is the highest grade of matcha.
Only the leaves in the first tea harvest of the Spring produce this matcha. The company then picks the baby tencha from the top of the plant to produce the sweetest flavour. Finally, they de-stem the centre vein and stem of each leaf to take away the bitter taste associated with lesser quality matcha.
Many matcha companies (specifically instant matcha blends) add corn starch or other fibres to make their matcha non- clumping. There are no non-organic ingredients in Matcha Ninja. It just 100% pure matcha.
A concern that developed from the consumers of matcha was the possibility of radiation contamination of Japanese tea leaves due to the Fukishima disaster. The tea plant, called the camilia sinsnus, is like a sponge and heavily absorbs whatever is in it's environment. This, coupled with the fact that with matcha you are consuming the tea by actually ingesting the whole leaf. (see this companies sourcing information and farms here)
Matcha Ninja was originally grown in Yame, Japan. However, a concern that developed for consumers, was the possibility of radiation contamination of tea leaves due to the Fukushima disaster.
The tea plant, called the camilia sinsnus, is like a sponge and heavily absorbs whatever is in it's environment. This, coupled with the fact that with matcha you are consuming the tea by actually ingesting the whole leaf, not just steeping like regular tea.
The material exclusively used for making matcha is a green tea leaf called tencha. This company expanded their sourcing efforts to find new tencha. The search brought them back to the birthplace of tea and more specifically to beautiful, organic farms in Zhejiang, China.
Zhejiang is home of the infamous Longjing or Dragon Well green tea, an extremely high quality green tea renowned amongst tea sommeliers globally. The original Dragon Well trees are still living in Zhejiang and the tea they produce is auctioned annually for higher price per gram than gold.
This company used their Japanese technical matcha experience in fertilization, stone grinding production, pest control, and sunlight protection, along with generations of local Chinese green tea knowledge to produce a quality of organic tencha unlike anything we had ever had before!
Matcha Ninja comes to life in the mountainous area of the Zhejiang Province, surrounded by a mild climate, rain and fog all year round. These conditions, and the lack of sun, allow the tea leaves to retain more l-theanine, thus providing your tea with a mellow and fruity taste.
Most of the Zhejiang province is covered with hills and ranges of small mountains. The high-altitude is great for the tea plants and the air is fresh. The region has a humid subtropical climate with distinct seasons and a seasonal precipitation pattern that provides the perfect growing conditions for the tencha leaves used in Matcha Ninja.
