HOW WE MATCHA

It all started with a journey through Asia

David Kerdoon founded Sencha Naturals in 2001 after an eye-opening journey through Asia. While traveling, David became fascinated by this whole world of green tea, being used in ways beyond the typical- i.e. leaves and water, in everything from savory snacks and skin care to candies and cookies. 

Upon his return, David felt there was this void that needed to be filled- people in the US seemed to only be drinking green tea, missing out on so many potential uses. David soon began collaborating with tea masters and connoisseurs to herbalists and food formulators- finally resulting in the birth of Sencha Naturals.

The goal was to create a socially-responsible company with green tea at the core of unique products, starting with Green Tea Mints, and eventually adding green tea immune support and green tea lattes. At Sencha Naturals, we continue to re-imagine the way green tea is being used, while at the same time, doing our part to take care of our community and by extension, the environment- creating better for you (and the planet) products.

B Corp Certified since 2012

Instead of being the best in the world, how about being the best for the world?

Our vision for Sencha Naturals has always been to take the sustainable road less traveled, and we feel there is more to success than just the bottom line. As a Certified B Corporation, we measure our social & environmental impact by transparent standards that extend beyond the traditional road map.

In 2012, we joined a community of 1000+ companies around the globe that are proudly certified as B Corporations. B Corporations focus on environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and corporate accountability. They are changing the modern economic landscape and encouraging others to "B the Change." The wide-ranging community consists of major corporations, one-person startups, and everything in between. Companies like Patagonia, Method, Etsy, Seventh Generation, and of course us at Sencha Naturals, are all aligned for a bigger purpose.

As a certified B Corporation, we believe that every company, no matter how small, can make a difference. We take the sustainable road less traveled, and measure success beyond profits. We volunteer in our community, give back to various charities, work with local & sustainable suppliers, use biodegradable & recyclable packaging materials, and participate in micro-lending programs to give opportunities to those less fortunate.
