Hatsu - 40g
Astringent but not overwhelming, Hatsu is a good choice for simple everyday drinking, baking, lattes, and other uses.
Hatsu is the lightest character blend in our regular matcha lineup. Its taste is highlighted by astringency and a short aftertaste, and it has a refreshingly sharp personality when prepared straight as usucha. With a soft green color, it can also be a smart choice for people who enjoy using matcha in baking or in making lattes.

I use it for baking as I consume alot for baking. It gives a light pale green and extremely light aromatic taste to my bread. If you really like matcha taste, don't bother with Hatsu for baking or drinking. You get what you pay for. I would up my game with better/pricier ippodo matcha for baking. (The picture below, I put the matcha in one of the old ippodo tin only. The original package comes in a paper box and an non resealable bag).
Fast delivery exactly what I ordered...Thank You and I will be back!
Love the smell and taste of the matcha. I can even smell the sweetness right after I add the water. It adds a smooth and velvety taste to my latte that I never experienced with any matcha latte. The matcha taste is so concentrated it reminds me of some Japanese matcha candies. Confident to say I will make my own matcha latte at home from now on.
I like to drink this as a latte with whole milk, honey, and a little bit of rose water. It's also great to cook with!
I usually drink my matcha as a latte with soy milk and honey, but this matcha was so naturally sweet that it didn't even need the honey! It had a sweet nutty flavor that was very reminiscent of the matcha ice cream I grew up eating. I actually preferred it to the more expensive matcha!
