"We were determined to find the highest quality matcha to bring to the health and fitness community."
“What started as conscious lifestyle change turned into a company.”
I began my professional career as an attorney with extensive law school studies in Health Law. Coffee throughout the day kept me jittery, affected my skin, had me constantly crashing, and didn’t allow me to fall asleep at night. I replaced my late day coffee with matcha and found I got an awesome boost and was also able to fall asleep at night. I soon replaced all of my coffee/energy drinks with matcha…. even my pre-workout drink! In 2015, after becoming a huge advocate of matcha, I left law full time and began trying tea from all over the globe to start Baahtcha.

In sourcing/selecting our farm, it was of utmost importance to us to not only find a high quality tea that had great taste, dissolvability and effect on our bodies, but to also stay true to the heritage of matcha tea. Matcha tea first originated in the mountains of China, so it is no coincidence that after testing many matchas from numerous countries, the mountainous region of China provided exactly what we wanted. It was also brought to our attention, after choosing our particular private, family farm, that the stone-grinding process that they employ is the most comprehensive and complete version in all of Asia. Our family farm takes pride in the matcha it produces, which can be tasted in every sip.
Many companies advertise that they are USDA organic, but this does not mean that they have taken all the steps to ensure that the product you’re putting into your body is of the highest quality and standards. Yes, our farm is USDA organic, but Baahtcha is also independently certified organic and on the USDA Organic Integrity Database. We voluntarily took the extra steps to obtain this certification and be on the USDA Organic Integrity Database to ensure traceability... in other words: to ensure to you, the customer, that from the point at which our matcha is cultivated until it reaches your mouth, Baahtcha’s organic integrity is NEVER compromised.
Our vision is to bring the highest quality matcha we can find to the consumer at a reasonable price that everyone can afford. To us, there is no reason that something so healthy should be hard to obtain. We are always looking for various other superfoods, vitamins, and healthy ingredients to possibly blend with Baahtcha. Should we add more products to our arsenal, we will always keep our promise to you that the quality will be top notch and the price will be affordable.
It is important to us to not create too many levels at Baahtcha. As the owners, we want to be able to always hear directly from our customers. We care about our customers as much as we care about our product. Should you ever have any questions or concerns, simply email us and we will get back to you shortly. No messaging machines, no automated systems, no gatekeepers. This, we believe, is the foundation to create an amazing group of like-minded, educated consumers to grow with.
Baahtcha has always been a product rooted in our passion for health and fitness. It’s not about trying to start some fitness trend, it’s about educating and introducing a quality superfood that is easily accessible to the public. It’s not just the drinking of Baahtcha, it’s the mental awareness of the lifestyle you’re choosing to live.
From Florida to New York to California, Baahtcha has been shipped to all people in all walks of life. Whether you’re a surfer on the coast or a cyclist from the Midwest, the search for a natural, organic energy and focus does not discriminate.
