This stuff is some of the best imported teas I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. It is an experience.
I am new to matcha drinking and decided to upgrade my current supply with Nodoka Limited Spring Edition.
I thoroughly enjoy this matcha:for its clean taste. I love the smell of the powder each time I open the bag. Yes, it’s pricey but Well worth the expense. I also appreciate the beautiful packaging as for me it is part of my experience. It makes a great gift for either the beginner in matcha drinking or a seasoned one. The size is more in a category of a sampler but it makes me feel not wasteful. I tried this matcha both hot and cold, and discovered that it is pretty enjoyable either way. Also, I discovered that I prefer to enjoy this matcha “clean”, as opposed to drinking it with milk. I attribute this to the high grade of its quality and my inclination to savor the aroma and tasty of this matcha on its own. Entirely grateful for allowing myself to try it. Special thanks to the company that appears to be quality-oriented and also provides lots of educational info on its site.

My boys and I visited Ippodo in NYC while on a family vacation last summer and enjoyed the most delicious matcha we have had outside of Japan. Given the current social distancing measures in place, we wanted to show our support and of course enjoy some delicious matcha and matcha lattes at home. This variety is exceptional as was the timely service. Looking forward to visiting in person someday.
Ordering from Ippodo tea was easy & efficient. I was able to track my shipment from beginning to delivery.
Perfect tea for relaxing time, especially night, because it has a little caffeine. I've tried lots kind of Hoji-cha, but this is the best! Has extreme deep flavor.
I begin each day with a matcha latte with is delicious matcha. So happy i can now order from the states! Thank you for the quick delivery.
I have been drinking sencha and matcha for 40+ years and have found Ippodo teas to be the very best available in the world. I choose to drink Kaboku sencha as my daily morning tea because of its delicious flavor - complex yet clear and well balanced - just the best! Ordering and shipping in the US has become so easy and shipping is free!
I have happily ordered gokujo hojicha from both Japan and now New York. It starts me going every day.
I've been getting my matcha from Ippodo straight from Japan until it was available in the USA. I would get the light, balanced and 1st level rich because the highest quality (Ummon-no-mukashi) would give me palpitations. It was too much. The Premium Select matcha though is miles apart from the rest. I can take it with just a tiny bit in the morning and I'll be alert until lunch time and the second cup I take will get me going till after work. You can scoop up the remaining matcha at the bottom or lick it like a candy powder. No pungent, bitter taste. I bought Sayaka-no-mukashi as well but didn't open it yet because I want to see the effects of the premium matcha. It's worth the premium price! It will rival the alertness you get from coffee minus the "withdrawal" like feeling when you don't have your cup-a-joe. It's always in my bag so I can have it whenever I want it. I wish they have some incentive like free shipping or discount for loyal customers like me because let's face it, it is a bit expensive. A small token of appreciation will encourage me more to stay loyal.
When I don't have enough time to make some matcha, I love having a stash of these sticks to make some matcha on the go! It tastes great! My only complaint is each stick only makes 150ml and I'm always left wanting more because it's so good!
You can absolutely tell this tea was made with careful consideration! The umami is off the charts. Zero bitterness. You will not be disappointed! A truly wonderful matcha
This is my second matcha that I got and I am obsessed. Will hopefully buy more before they sell out
