Serving sizeUsucha: 2 g (1 tsp.)
Size 2" × 2" × 2.6"
Net weight1.05 oz (30 g)

Ikuyo is a balanced matcha with astringency, umami, and sweetness in proportion. Its medium-light body is joined by a gentle, but bright aroma, like sun-dried straw. As usucha, it is a good option for everyday teatime, served straight and with cookies, cakes, or other sweets. One of our top recommendations for a matcha latte, Ikuyo has slight astringency that pairs well with the milk, and its bright green color makes for a photogenic beverage.

Ways to Prepare

Combine matcha's natural sweetness and crisp green bite with the creamy texture of milk.
