We recommend Sayaka-no-mukashi for your first taste of Ippodo matcha, as it is a subtle balance of matcha's natural umami flavor with a touch of astringency.
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.

Love the taste of this tea! More caffeinated than other lower quality matchas I've bought so I have to use less which will make it last longer.
I have been a Japanese green tea aficionado for a long time, and drink it daily. This matcha is a nice blend of sweetness and umami at a good price. I visited the Ippodo shop in Tokyo last summer, and I am convinced that Ippodo is a true professional organization. Their teas speak for themselves. Good matcha is hard to find in the U.S.
I didn’t know anything about matcha besides Starbucks [so nothing], and I started with the best tier they sell [which is delicious!!]. But because of how sweet I like my matcha I thought I was 99% wasting that expensive tea and spending too much money. So I bought this and the ikuyo-no-muskashi thinking I wonder if I can taste a difference in the way I use matcha in my casual [sweet] latte drinking. Ironically I found this one ‘Sayaka-no-mukashi’ to have no noticeable difference from the best quality one in the chart. But the difference between this and the “ikuyo-no-mukashk’ to be quite dramatic in comparison. The Ikuyo I found to be somewhat bitter tasting and didn’t enjoy that too much. I concluded to no go cheeper than this one and this one is AMAZING quality and taste so no need to go more expensive. So happy I know which one I’m going to be buying regularly
I like it. Pretty mild and delivery was excellent!!
really good!! smaller than i expected but I Think it’ll make it to about 15 servings
