Ikuyo - 100g
Ikuyo is a medium-bodied matcha with a refreshing bitterness that is slightly more noticeable than its sweetness and umami.
Now available in a convenient 100g size
This 100g bag has a sealable closure, a wide opening for easy scooping, and a simple open-and-use design. Choose this size for convenient everyday matcha use, and for preparing a lot of matcha at once for a group.
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.

I tried Ikuyo as a less expensive alternative for everyday drinking to Sayaka. I appreciated how smooth and rich Sayaka tasted, and I was a little hesitant to try this because of the “snappy” description - I thought it might be too astringent. However, I had no cause for concern. This matcha is very balanced and mild. I actually can’t detect much astringency. Taste-wise, Ikuyo is a little less sweet than Sayaka. It also has a lighter mouth feel. I actually think these characteristics make Ikuyo an ideal everyday matcha. I drink usucha first thing in the morning, and sometimes Sayaka was too heavy for me. Ikuyo is very subtle and unobtrusive. I would definitely recommend trying this matcha if you are looking for more affordable options or a gentle everyday matcha!
This is my second order of matcha tea, and after taking their quiz I was recommended this variety. It is amazing! I use it for matcha lattes, and this one it perfect!
I am new to the whole matcha scene. So, that meant I had to do a lot of research. Luckily a very strong community and the questionnaire on this website helped. The recommendation was to go with ikuyo and I couldn't be happier. I have semi- perfected my own latte recipe and it proved to be an instant hit with the family members too. I have placed an order for another 40g just yesterday. Also I feel this is the best place to buy it. The matcha is shipped really fast and the quality seems way better than other places. Also the website is well managed and has lots of information. It feels more welcoming for someone new like me.
We really enjoy making matcha lattes with this tea. It has a really nice earthy flavor and a beautiful vibrant green. Compared to the matcha we bought at the grocery store, there really is no comparison. The quality is just so much better.
