For those who prefer a slightly lighter taste, Kan-no-shiro is a good choice, with a touch of astringency and enough umami to satisfy even the biggest matcha aficionado.
Characterized by its rich aroma, full-bodied mellow sweetness, and vivid green color, matcha is a favorite among tea lovers in Japan. Ground from shade-cultivated tea leaves, matcha is rich in theanine -- an amino acid responsible for matcha's umami (translates to “savory deliciousness” and is also known as the fifth taste). Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.
Perfect for my matcha lattes....
Vibrant green, no clumps, mild and sweet and less astringency than the Kimmo no mukashi.
I have tried quite a few varieties of matcha tea and this is best for far.
love this product!
this matcha tastes and smells sweet and grassy, exactly the way it is supposed to, it is creamy and balanced in your mouth. I love it ♥
I have tried a lot of matcha, and this is the best there is!
Best matcha i have ever had. It's the correct bright green and is incredibly flavorful. Highly recommend
Great flavor, quality product!
I’ve bought cheaper brands in the past and finally decided to try Ippodo after seeing a couple recommendations on Instagram. I couldn’t be happier with the taste and quality! The color is a bright green, which indicates how superb & fresh the quality is. Much better than other brands out there!
