Blender's Choice: Matcha Holiday Set
Our blending team chose these matchas for a special set to share and enjoy over the holidays. This is a one-time release with a limited quantity available at a special price.
As matcha in the regular Ippodo collection, Ikuyo, Horai, and Ummon are blended to have a consistent character and are available throughout the year.
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
0.7 oz (Horai)
1 oz (Ikuyo)
- Ummon - 20g tin
- Horai - 20g tin
- Ikuyo - 30g box
Ummon has a powerful, complex character. On first sip, it’s punchy and eye-opening. Then, the aftertaste develops with expanding layers of robust umami and lingering richness. A strong introduction to the highest end of Ippodo matcha blends.
Horai is full-bodied, but also approachable. Its rich umami is balanced by a hint of crisp astringency. This matcha (which is also the same matcha powder as Sayaka) is our usual recommendation for those trying Ippodo matcha for the first time.
Ikuyo is a medium-rich matcha blend. Its pleasant astringency and soft umami are present in equal proportion, giving it a well-balanced taste. We often recommend Ikuyo as a matcha for those who like to make lattes.
Serve these matchas side-by-side for a comparison, or enjoy each one at a time. We suggest pairing matcha this season with gingerbread cookies, cakes, and any favorite holiday desserts.
When serving guests, our Matcha Bowl With Spout is convenient for whisking a large batch of matcha to pour into cups.
