Rich & Smooth

Sayaka - 40g

Our recommendation for people new to our matcha, Sayaka is a more light-hearted, smooth tea in the rich category. Its sweetness and umami are accompanied by a hint of bitterness.

Taste Notes

We recommend Sayaka for your first taste of Ippodo matcha, as it is a smooth blend with umami and just a hint of astringency. Try this matcha as koicha to experience the full depth and nuances of its character. As usucha, Sayaka is an accessible tea to serve to beginners and connoisseurs alike at teatime. For matcha lattes, we usually recommend a medium-to-light category matcha with more astringency, but some will choose Sayaka for its bright color, umami, and soft astringency.

Delicious matcha

This is a great matcha to get started or if you have never had matcha. Smooth but also bright and citrusy. Easily dissolves in water (after sifting) and makes for a great cup of matcha :)

Perfection

This is hands down some of the best matcha I’ve had. If you like Sayaka, I’d recommend Ummon next.

Feel like I’m drinking only the best quality!

I’ve been searching for a high quality matcha that I could trust. I saw an influencer on Instagram who recommended Ippodotea matcha and I decided to try it. Definitely not disappointed, it is excellent! I purchased it to make matcha lattes and it is the perfect amount of sweet, a very smooth texture and a beautiful color. A perfect matcha for a consumer new to the matcha scene. Can’t wait to try more intense grades of matcha!
