Nodoka - 20g
Available only in spring, Nodoka has a pleasant balance of umami and subtle sharpness.
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
Nodoka, which is Japanese for “serenity,” was named after the bright, warm feeling we get once the days start getting longer in spring.
Nodoka has a medium body in comparison with our regular year-round selection.
When you start to whisk it, you’ll notice its fragrance is fresh and dew-like, wafting up from the bowl. Take a sip, and you’ll taste a note of astringency followed soon by layers of sweetness and umami. Pause for a second to experience the aftertaste, which lingers with a balanced, refreshing character.
As koicha, this matcha’s nuances are much more prominent, and you can fully appreciate its balance of umami, astringency, and fragrance. In a matcha latte, its mild astringency pairs well with the milk, producing a mellow drink with more umami than our lighter blends.
This spring-themed package features flowers of the tea tree, reminiscent of the spring blossoms of Japanese plum and cherry trees. As a present, this lighthearted design will surely cheer the recipient with the spirit of spring.
