Taste Notes

Wakaki has a refreshing character and ranks among our light blends. Prepared as usucha, this tea a good choice for people who enjoy matcha with a short aftertaste, soft fragrance, noticeable astringency, and a hint of sweetness. Its astringency gives matcha lattes a little bite and a crisp character. It also works well for baked goods given its nice green color.

Great for everyday matcha lattes

I’ve tried the 50 dollar ippodo matcha the wakaki and hatsu, the 50 dollar one is the best but the wakaki is better for my budget. Hatsu has a bitter taste compared to the wakaki.

Excellent

I have been ordering Matcha from Ippodo Tea ever since my sister bought me its matcha product from Japan. I have tried different types of matcha from different price points whether it’s from Ippodo or other branda. By far, my personal favorite will be Wakaki. It is good for my son’s daily matcha latte intake to my weekly baking needs. I can taste the matcha flavor and the color of green is very vibrant for baking products. Highly recommend this matcha product.

Excellent!

Item arrived on time. Wakaki Shiro matcha suits my taste as I prefer high astringency (bitterness) when having my tea.
Will buy again! Thank you!

Great for beginners

I think this product is great for beginners because it’s not bitter at all. It has a refreshing feeling that just hits you surprisingly.
