Premium Organic Matcha - 20g
Our higher-grade organic matcha blend with a balance of sweet undertones and astringency.
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
After the popularity of our first Organic Matcha, which features a lighter, snappy, astringent taste, we sought to produce a high-quality blend with a fuller character, to add to the Ippodo organic selection.
We are excited to now have available this medium-bodied Premium Organic Matcha, sourced from rare harvests grown in the Kyoto tea production region.
This premium organic matcha blend has pleasant bitterness and astringency offset by undertones of sweetness and umami. It has a balanced profile remarkable for an organic matcha release.
Its presence is satisfying and medium-rich, and its aftertaste lingers for just the right amount of time. It has a vegetal and sweet fragrance and a vivid, eye-catching green color.
We recommend trying Premium Organic Matcha in your favorite matcha drinks, from regular usucha, to matcha lattes, to thick matcha (koicha). As koicha, this matcha’s nuances are much more prominent, and it has a powerful impact.
Ranking outside of our regular lineup, this limited tea changes character with every release. It is shipped in small quantities, and may sell out frequently.
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.
Ways to Prepare
Matcha made into a powerfully rich, thick paste using less water and more matcha powder per serving.
Our usucha recipe over ice. Preparing matcha with hot water and cooling it rapidly lets you taste the full delight of matcha.
Whisking matcha with cold or chilled water brings out a strong sweetness.
