Seiun - 40g
Seiun places firmly in our rich category. Its lingering finish and full umami character make it a wise choice for fans of a reflective, satisfying matcha teatime.
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
We recommend Seiun for the matcha fan looking for a tea with a full (but not overwhelming) character. With a hearty umami and sweet taste, its aftertaste is long and elegant. We recommended trying this matcha as koicha to experience the full depth and nuances of its character. As usucha, Seiun is deeply satisfying, a standby at teatime. For matcha lattes, we usually recommend a medium-to-light category matcha with more astringency, but some will choose Shoin for its bright color and its umami-rich profile.

I recently made the switch from coffee to match for health reasons and I was having a hard time finding one I liked due to the taste and aftertaste of other brands.
I was gifted Seiun and I am hooked. I'm on my second tin and this matcha is the highlight of my morning ritual. I've learned that I like a thick matcha - it's filling and warm to me that way, even when iced. This matcha has a well-balanced creamy, umami and grassiness in its taste that I love. It's just sweet enough and there is no bitter aftertaste. The quality of Ippodo Tea's matcha is unmatched.
Do yourself a solid and gift yourself some Seiun.
I love this matcha! It has well rounded flavor and is very creamy. I also love how frothy it is, especially compared to other matcha that ive tried. I don't taste a very noticeable sweetness however the aftertaste is very enjoyable and gives my morning a great start.
The matcha is always good. Wonderful products and quick shipping. So far I have had no complaints and will continue shopping from here.
As a repeat customer I like to try the different varieties of matcha. In this case I wanted to prepare it as an iced matcha as suggested. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. I did not detect the sweetness as mentioned but there was no bitterness whatsoever. Highly recommend
The seiun matcha has a nice aroma and a balanced, slightly sweet flavor. One of my favorites that I’ve tried from Ippodo so far!
