Taste Notes

Kuon is a special-release matcha exclusive to our USA and Canadian customers. Originally available in the Ippodo New York store, this matcha has a different personality than the other high grades in the regular Ippodo lineup. Kuon ranks above Ummon-no-mukashi.

The regular selection of Ippodo matchas will reflect our well-loved preference for matcha flavor: rich, sweeter, and full-bodied matcha in the high grade, and more bitter, less sweet, light-bodied matchas in the lower range. All have similar flavor profiles and differ from each other depending on their rank.

Kuon has a vivid green color, a long aftertaste, and a rich umami that make it a delight like other high grade matchas. However, Kuon stands out because it has a uniquely bright bitterness. Of course, all matcha will have some bitterness, but Kuon's bitterness is more refined, comparable to a wine with refined tannins.

For our American and Canadian fans who love the strength and fullness of Ippodo's high grade matcha, Kuon is an exciting, different addition to the lineup. Unparalleled as koicha; striking as usucha.

Matcha

Characterized by its rich aroma, full-bodied mellow sweetness, and vivid green color, matcha is a favorite among tea lovers in Japan. Ground from shade-cultivated tea leaves, matcha is rich in theanine -- an amino acid responsible for matcha's umami (translates to “savory deliciousness” and is also known as the fifth taste). Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.

Quality Matcha

After trying the Premium Select Matcha I knew my expectations would be high. I ordered the Kuron Matcha as the Premium Select was out of stock. I received the item within a week of ordering which was impressive. After preparing the matcha I noticed some similarities with the Premium Select which were the smoothness, no astringency and this unique feeling of calmness and mental clarity not often experienced with other ceremonial grades of matcha I have used in the past.

Interestingly enough, I did not experience the energy effect that often associated with matcha. My only hypothesis is that the higher grades contain more L-Theanine due to the shading process but cannot be for certain. It could also be the tea leaves themselves.

Overall, I highly recommend Kuron but it's very expensive to drink as an everyday matcha. That is the only criticism I have.
