I really am a fan of roasted / smoked teas in general, and hojicha has long been a favorite in this category. Ippodo's regular hojicha and in particular their outstanding kuki version is such a satisfying cup after a meal or at the end of the day. So glad it's now available domestically! :)
This set is adorable and functional. The pieces are well made. The matcha tea that came with it is amazing. Previously I was drinking the Whole Foods 365 brand… this matcha blows my other one out of the water. I will continue to buy matcha from here. Thanks!
This is seriously the best matcha I’ve ever had, and I’ve tried quite a few.. definitely going to get again!
Love it! Very delicious. I enjoy my matcha and have tasted many different ones from other companies but this one stands out.
Definitely the best.
I typically drink Hosen, which is very good, but decided to splurge and try Kumpu this time and am not disappointed. Kumpu has a very deep layer of umami. Ippodo's description, "rich and elegant," is spot on. It tastes great by itself, and is also very good with honey and milk as its own flavor doesn't get covered with the additions. Highly recommended!
I absolutely love this matcha. It’s creamy and floral with a bit of umami. Packaging was gorgeous.
I lost my iriginal chakin cloth. Now i have one and a backup. Niw my ceremony on Sunday morning is mire complete.
This set is beautiful, from the objects to the packaging and instructions. I'm quite happy with my matcha set and doubly happy with using it to institute a new ritual at home for myself.
I got this after my husband treated me to my first matcha kit last year with another entry level matcha. This one is just as lovely as the first kind I got (I’m forgetting the name). It’s bright , vegetal, smooth and balanced. I highly recommend!
Just right sweetness, right amount for a single cup , no clumps, and so very tasy!
Teas and service are first rate. Highly recommend this supplier of various Japanese green teas!
Vibrant green with a creamy and rich flavor. Perfect for a nice morning treat on a cold winter day.
The amount of tea in the teabag is simply not enough for a cup of tea. You really have to use 2 bags to get enough flavor.
For the longest time, I thought I just didn't like matcha tea, but I am a big tea and coffee drinker and wanted an alternative for lattes when I'm not in the coffee mood. I decided to try and order highly rated matcha to make at home and see if I liked it more than what I had tried from local coffee shops - and I am so glad I did! The tea that comes in this set has a light taste and tastes much more mild than some others I've had (that literally taste like drinking grass). The kit is really cute and packaged well and the instructions made it really easy to make a great cup of matcha. I definitely recommend this!
Iribancha has such a unique aroma and flavor. It smells very earthy and has a more mild yet pleasant taste. It is definitely an acquired taste but all tea lovers can appreciate it. The only comment I have is that I wish a loose leaf version was available as I don't like wasting an one-pot tea bag if I'm the only one having a cup of tea.
My sister and I purchased Uji-Shimizu back in 2019 from Ippodo tea when we were visiting Kyoto and fell in love with the sweet and refreshing taste on the hot days. Unfortunitly I only bought 2 packs to bring home to Canada so I ran out fairly quickly. I’ve been hesitiant to purchase it online since it is much more expensive rather than purchasing in person, however it’s much cheaper and better tasting than getting something similar from David’s Tea, plus there’s only two simple ingredients! It’s great mixed with water or with oat milk.
