The tea came very quickly and was of excellent quality. Truly grateful I found your website!
The best sencha and it comes from US, not need international shipping. Thats a big bonus.
(Usually, we buy sencha from Japan)
The genmaicha, with a unique aroma and flavor, is the perfect match to a Kyoro breakfast. It's not a sophisticated flavor, but definitely brings back memories of Japan every time I drink it. Low in caffeine and helpful digestive tea.
I'm so glad I got this carafe. I love being able to make large batches of tea that I can enjoy throughout the day. It's also fits perfectly in my refrigerator.
Easy way to enjoy Sencha tea. Great hot or iced. I like to steep overnight in the fridge with a mint herbal tea.
Wonderful smooth and light flavor. Has a mild roasted note but not too smoky as some Hojicha tea can be. Never tannic like traditional black tea and is great iced or hot.
The Shincha is a really lovely, fresh-tasting Sencha. Will reorder next Spring, for sure. ٩(◕‿◕)۶
Love the taste of this tea! More caffeinated than other lower quality matchas I've bought so I have to use less which will make it last longer.
This was my first experience with Shincha sencha tea. I only followed the hot tea preparation and used the recommended amounts of tea leaves and brewing time. The flavor is a little intense and bracing for me but by the third brew it was very enjoyable. I typically brewed with the tea leaves 4 times and allowed additional time for brewing as I went. This is a bit on the expensive side since you will only get ~10 servings per 100 g bag.
Best matcha I've ever had. It has a rich umami flavor and no bitterness whatsoever. There is also a hint of sweetness with the flavor. Love it but wow is it expensive!
When I ordered this I was so excited! When it arrived, my package had been opened and the tea stolen... when I contacted customer service and explained to them the situation they were more than happy to work with me on price and quickly refilled the order :) The tea tastes lovely and I will order it again!
I know when I buy from Ippodo I will not be disappointed. This is among the best genmaicha I've ever had - fresh and light with a perfect balance of bitter green with toasty rice. I particularly enjoy brewing a pot around lunchtime and enjoying it throughout the afternoon.
My wife is Japanese. We've tried many different brands, but our favorite is Ippodo. Just the right balance of flavor, along with color. We've gone through 3 bags and just got 3 more.
The taste is amazing im in love with it. Sad that is so little the amount of it for the price.
I have always had matcha with a bite. This is a Matcha I would recommend to beginners. Or if you are in the mood for a smooth taste that if you want to relax. . I enjoyed it. It’s not like the New Year which is stronger with slight bitter. And not as strong as drinking your ceremonial drink. I love ceremonial Matcha. I hope this review helps.
Have a good one everyone.
Very strong taste of caffine on my 1st bowl. I will not recommend this matcha if ur thin tea has few or no bubble.
This is my second time ordering kan-no-shiro and it is the best matcha that I ever had. I will definitely be ordering this on a regular basis. And shipping is super fast, even during COV, where most shops significantly delay shipping, ippodo had my tea to me earlier than the estimated delivery date. That type of quality and efficiency has earned them a regular, loyal customer in me. I’m glad I found this places.
This is my first time trying gyokuro. It exceeded my expectations. I haven’t tasted the other gyokuro on this website, but the kanro is amazing. Will definitely order again. Oh, and the shipping was lightening fast; it arrived earlier than expected
I have been a Japanese green tea aficionado for a long time, and drink it daily. This matcha is a nice blend of sweetness and umami at a good price. I visited the Ippodo shop in Tokyo last summer, and I am convinced that Ippodo is a true professional organization. Their teas speak for themselves. Good matcha is hard to find in the U.S.
I have been a Japanese green tea aficionado for a long time, and drink it daily. This matcha is the perfect blend of sweetness and umami. I visited the Ippodo shop in Tokyo last summer, and was delighted by Seiun. I will continue drinking it for a long time. Much of the matcha available in the U.S. is nowhere near as good as this.
I like the size of this tea pot, and the filter in the lid. However, I was hoping for a tea pot with a tighter lid. When pouring from this tea pot, you have to hold the lid, or it will fall off into your cup.
It looks good, and is well constructed, but the lid needs improvement.
Great tasting matcha tea, but what is more outstanding is the customer service I received from Sebastian. I had some damage on this order and Sebastian instantly replaced the damaged items and expedited the delivery. He also threw in something extra on a different order when an item was back ordered.. Top notch service! I will be back!
