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.

I love trying the limited matcha and wasn’t disappointed with this one. Has a nice bright flavor with a light astringency
Very good and easy to make for people not super familiar with it. May take some time to dissolve into the water if you don’t sift and blend before brew but that’s part of the fun!
Nodoka is something I look forward to every Spring so I can order it from Ippodo.
When hot water is added and whisked into a froth, a sweet scent wafts into the air. Flavor is light with a slight astringent bite and finishes clean.
Packaging has been the same for many years. After opening, I always transfer the matcha in an opaque airtight container to keep it fresh longer.
But that isn't really necessary for me because once I open it, I'll have Nodoka every day and it quickly runs out. :)
This is the most delicious matcha I have tried to date. I will be buying more!
