I have tried many organic matcha powders before but this is by far the best. Quality taste and look. It feels like I finally found my perfect matcha product. I will definitely be purchasing again and forever!
This has everything you need to prepare an excellent cup of matcha at home! Everything is great quality, and the matcha is delicious!
Such a treat to receive a beautiful Matcha starter tea set in the USA. No wonder that Ippodo is a respected tea shop in Japan. Thanks for a satisfying on-line ordering experience.
I always do certain things for New Year to keep my luck. I do add things to my traditions when I hear about other good luck traditions. Saw this tea and ordered it last year. This will definitely be a tradition because the tea is very nice. Plus it is something that my Mom would have drank when she was around. Nice and light. Like the subtleness and very faint lemon? I know I just like it. lol
I have tried my fair share of Matcha powder, and this one by far works the best for iced. The flavor doesn’t get watered down and it whisks well after adding ice cubes.
I wish I had this item earlier! This has stepped up my matcha game to a whole new level. This completely gets rid of unpleasant matcha clumps and sifts wonderfully. The holder is excellent for maintaining its shape, definitely will last a long time.
Fantastic matcha. I wish this was a permanent addition to the Ippodo line. I almost prefer it to the Ummon, which is my usual go-to.
I recently purchased 2 teas from Ippodo, this being one of them. I’m very impressed with the quality of both. As I sip this sencha, I close my eyes and reminisce about past visits to Japan :)
This was my first tasting of Ippodo teas. And I have to say that I was truly delighted from the first sip. The aroma awakens the senses. The tea is full-bodied and refreshing at the same time. I am very happy with my purchase.
never tasted matcha this good!
smooth on its own and great as latte too!! :)
definitely will repurchase in the future!!
The absolute best!!! I only buy this matcha. It has a strong matcha flavor, but not overpowering whatsoever. I use this to make iced oat milk matcha lattes and they turn out amazing every time. The color is a beautiful shade of green I never get tired of
I really enjoyed this in my latte, considering the price, and actually prefer this to the wakaki. It's more bitter but the milk balances it out nicely and the matcha taste is very strong. The wakaki had a sharp taste that I wasn't expecting and didn't enjoy, and this was a clean matcha taste.
This is good matcha, not very astringent and has decent umami flavors. Maybe this is the best choice if you want to make usacha every day and want to cut down costs, but if you’re making it every few days or so, I would splurge and get the ummon. The difference is pretty noticeable and the splurge is worth it for the occasional treat. In my other days I would use a lighter matcha to make a latte or a more diluted shaken drink, still trying to decide which one to stick with for this but the horai is too rich for it. I’m glad I tried it but I don’t see a good fit for it in any of my matcha routines
This tea is wonderfully delicious especially when the weather is cold. I am a repeat buyer of this tea. My family has drank thru 9 full packages of one-pot Obukucha (Good Fortune tea) and a couple of the 100g loose tea packages since the start of its season. I ordered 4 more one-pot packages because I fear it would sell out soon as it ends its season. I usually purchase their hojicha and genmaicha which is wonderful as well, but since this is a seasonal tea, I decided to try it. My first purchase of Obukucha was actually at the Ippodo shop on Teramachi-dori in Kyoto. I was excited when it became available on Ippodo USA. I highly recommend.
I think this tea has ruined all other tea for me because it's so good. It is rich and strong but not bitter! Great roasted flavor. Great hot or cold if you don't drink it all at once. I think I prefer this to coffee now.
I had the great opportunity to have tea at Ippodo in Kyoto and regretted not buying a Japanese tea pot when I was there. I was so excited to see this teapot available. It works well. It cleans easy. I have never had a tea pot before and it feels very lightweight and I am very careful when I clean and store it so it does not get damaged. It's the perfect size as well.
