Ikuyo - 30g
Ikuyo is a medium-bodied matcha with a refreshing bitterness that is slightly more noticeable than its sweetness and umami.
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
Best matcha I have ever tried for matcha lattes. Perfect balance of flavor and the prettiest green color. Will repurchase and highly recommend.
There is no matcha better than this matcha. It’s smooth, it isn’t bitter, it’s the absolute best start to the day. Worth every penny.
So smooth and delicious. Love it in my matcha lattes.
My 3rd order of Ippodo Matcha. Although the price is a bit pricey, I have to say that it is definitely worth it. It’s not your typical starbucks or coffee bean matcha grade. Its incomparabale , because this is the real thing, the real matcha without the bad stuff. I’ve been drinking this daily since I stopped drinking coffee.
I bought this after buying one of the smaller / special edition matchas. Wanted something more everyday (aka a little less pricey) and was recommended this one. Its really great & smooth. I make it with some milk and water and look forward to it every morning when I wake up :)
