Taste Notes

This organic matcha has a crisp, astringent character with an aroma like a breeze through a field. As usucha, pair this brisk matcha with sweets at teatime. Or, add milk and use it for your daily matcha latte. This tea is great for everyday, light-hearted matcha use.

Ranking outside of our regular lineup, this limited tea changes character with every release.

Ippodo's Organic Selection

Our organic teas are produced in the Kyoto tea production region and are certified organic by the JAS. (The USDA recognizes JAS organic certification as an equivalent standard to USDA organic certification.) We have selected each organic variety to meet Ippodo standards for authentic Japanese green tea flavor, aroma, and color. Additionally, compared to our other tea blends, the weather and other growing factors lead to greater differences in the character of our organic teas every year. Discovering this year's unique characteristics is one of the delights of these teas.

Too bitter

I usually get matcha which is described rich and smooth which I like. I wanted to try this organic one described as light and snappy but I find it too bitter for my taste. Next time I won’t order any matcha that is described similarly.

Premium Matcha Quality

I truly enjoyed this quality matcha. I've had the taste comparison from another brand and I was pleased to have no bitter taste in my cup! I know that if matcha is left in liquid too long, it becomes bitter but this one— not at all! It was good on its own (with hot water ofc), which says a lot, or with some sugar & oat milk. I thought it was pricey for the amount I got but after trying it out, I have to say ... though I would appreciate a lower price, it is at a fair value. If you're wondering, just try it once and see if it's worth buying again.
