This new set features three distinct varieties of matcha
Suitable for new and veteran matcha fans alike, this set includes three teas that represent the full spectrum of matcha, from light to rich.
First, challenge yourself to tell the difference between the three when prepared regularly, as usucha (standard matcha). See if you can distinguish between Fuku-mukashi’s crisp, refreshing character, Kan-no-shiro’s balanced character, and Seiun’s umami-dense, full bodied character. Which one do you prefer? It might depend on your mood that day!
Next, try making the teas with another brewing method, using the instructions included for a matcha latte and for koicha (extra-rich, paste-like matcha). Revel at the dramatic differences that come from just changing the brewing method with the same matcha.
Experiment with these different teas and recipes, and learn the major differences between the different grades or ranks of Ippodo matcha.
This set comes already wrapped, making it a perfect gift for the fall and winter gift giving season.
Seiun, made as koicha. A deep emerald green; as thick as molasses.
Kan-no-shiro as standard usucha. Aroma, a tinge of bitterness, and plentiful matcha sweetness.
Fuku-mukashi in a matcha latte. This tea’s lighter, crisp character pairs well with milks, hot or cold.
I like this gift set. It comes in a really classy box set, and I got it gift wrapped, which is beautifully done with Japanese paper. I got to try three types of Macha and taste the differences, like getting a flight of beers or bourbons. All the Matchas were delicious and tasted fresher and more authentic than the kind of stuff we usually get in the US.
I love the Fuku Mukashi for my every day morning matcha lattes.. Kan No Shiro for the afternoon, either as a latte or straight matcha. And the Seiun when I really want a flavorful energy lift or when I'm pulling out the "good stuff" for guests. Such a great gift! I also bought a set for friends.
