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.

I drink matcha daily and have tried Kuon, Kanza, the organic, several seasonal offerings, and Horai. I generally enjoy deep flavors like espresso. The Ikuyo is rich but well balanced, alive but not bitter or oceanic. Absolutely worth trying if you haven't. For me, it is my favorite daily matcha.
I took the quiz to figure out my match type. By no means am I an expert but I just transitioned from coffee to match. This was a great choice! It tastes great and I plan on reordering.
I drink matcha everyday (sometimes multiple times a day) and nothing compares to this! It is so smooth and well balanced with a hint of sweetness. I love that it comes in a larger bag. I will definitely continue to purchase this, I highly recommend it!
This is the most flavorful matcha I’ve had to date. Just the right balance of bitter and sweet. It’s a stunning bright green color as well! I will definitely buy again.
lil expensive for the amount you get and clumps form easily so you really have to work the matcha. Otherwise super tasty and smooth, kinda just tastes like Starbucks matcha latte
