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.

Quality Matcha

Sayaka was my first quality matcha purchase and was not disappointed.
I’ve used grocery store Japanese matcha. It was bitter.
Enjoying the “ritual” of preparation. It’s my afternoon version of my morning espresso Americano. It’s tasty and easy to prepare.
