Rich & Replenishing

Shoin - 20g

Shoin 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.

Taste Notes

We recommend Shoin 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, Shoin 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 tried Shoin after finishing both my previously bought Ummon + Horai and unfortunately don't enjoy it as much as Ummon but as it's a very personal question I recommend just trying them one by one. The quality is pristine and the colour, smell and flavour of ALL ippodo teas are fabulous. So is the customer service. Thank you!

I got this because l couldn't go to Japan this year, it cheered me up because it reminded me of the matcha I enjoyed in a tea house in Nara. No lucky deer but at least the warm smooth emerald liquor of Nippon..

Shoin and Tsukigage

My first two from Ippodo and am very pleased with the full, well rounded flavor. Shoin is a little less robust than the limited fall matcha buy the amount of water you use varies the strength. I would get both again and still need to try Ummon. I have tried various brands and these are keepers.
