Exclusive to USA & Canada. New Harvest Matcha is available only while supplies last.
Typically matcha is made from leaves that have been rested for a period of many months. This resting process develops and matures the leaves, producing a complex and relaxed character.
Our New Harvest Matcha, on the other hand, is a unique release. It was made just days ago by grinding the new tea leaves harvested this year, 2021. These just-harvested leaves give this matcha a fresh and energetic character that stands out in our selection.
New Harvest Matcha has a unique character with nuances that change every year, depending on the climate and other growing conditions in the tea fields. It is high-quality matcha that is interesting in comparison with our rich category blends from the year-round selection.
This year’s New Harvest Matcha release is a remarkably vibrant tea. Its character is fresh, bright, and clear, and it has a refreshing aftertaste. Its aroma is eye-opening and round, while its taste is sweet with a pleasant balance of fresh-green bitterness.
We recommend trying this year’s New Harvest Matcha as iced matcha. This refreshing recipe is what we will be drinking throughout the heat of summer.
As standard usucha, this tea has a bright aroma and a refreshing character. Its vivid color is also stunning in a latte, paired with your milk of choice. We recommend koicha only for matcha fans, as with this method, New Harvest Matcha is bracing and full of young energy.

It has a unique and bright flavor with a long, slightly bitter finish.
Having struggled for quite some time with inferior and relatively old matcha powder, I have been delighting in the ease with which I can make a beautiful frothy chawan of tea.!
Great tasting matcha tea, but what is more outstanding is the customer service I received from Sebastian. I had some damage on this order and Sebastian instantly replaced the damaged items and expedited the delivery. He also threw in something extra on a different order when an item was back ordered.. Top notch service! I will be back!
So fresh. Truly the taste of spring and summer. Nothing like making this early in the morning to start my day.
I'm not an expert and I think all matcha pretty much tastes the same, but compared to the traditional tea ippodo has, this tastes uniquely different. It seems to be more concentrated than the regular flavor, and it is colored a bit more vividly green.
This definitely has a different, deeper flavor than regular matcha.
Full disclosure: I don't know what "umami" or "astringency" means even though it's all over the description. Maybe I just don't have the range
