Horai - 20g
Our recommendation for people new to our matcha, Horai is a more light-hearted, smooth tea in the rich category. Its sweetness and umami are accompanied by a hint of bitterness.
We recommend Horai for your first taste of Ippodo matcha, as it is a smooth blend with umami and just a hint of astringency. Try this matcha as koicha to experience the full depth and nuances of its character. As usucha, Horai is an accessible tea to serve to beginners and connoisseurs alike at teatime. For matcha lattes, we usually recommend a medium-to-light category matcha with more astringency, but some will choose Horai, for its bright color, umami, and soft astringency.

Product shipped quickly and is exactly as described. Purchased Sayaka to make matcha lattes and it does not disappoint. I look forward to my morning matcha every day, so will definitely buy again and recommend to others.
I am very picky with my Matcha, this did not disappoint! Though the amount is small, very little is needed and it is very flavorful. I will definitely be a loyal customer from here on out.
Containers were much smaller than anticipated. However, the flavor and pleasure from the tea was also much larger than anticipated. I will definitely be buying more in the future. I can see these cans lasting for awhile, simply because not much is needed (barely a teaspoon) to get the full experience of the tea. Furthermore, the energy received from such a small amount is clean, long lasting, and has no discernible crash. So glad to have found such an exceptional tea!
Vibrant green color, grassy aroma & creamy texture. Foams beautifully with the chasen. A daily treat to myself!
