Sayaka - 40g
Our recommendation for people new to our matcha, Sayaka is a more light-hearted, smooth tea in the rich category. Its sweetness and umami are accompanied by a hint of bitterness.
Koicha: 4g (2 tsp.)
We recommend Sayaka 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, Sayaka 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 Sayaka for its bright color, umami, and soft astringency.

Perfect matcha, perfect service!
The color and aroma bring back memories of my trip to Japan a few years ago. The smoothness and taste are excellent. I'll be back for more. Arigatougozaimasu!
Great umami taste
Delicious, smooth and earthy. Slightly sweet, not at all bitter. Great for everyday drinking! Arrived quickly, even with pandemic mail delays.
