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.
Koicha: 4 g (2 tsp.)
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.

Very smooth matcha with little to no bitterness. Great with milk and with or without sweetener!
Even though I am not a first time matcha drinker, I wanted to try Sayaka. WOW the color is absolutely beautiful and the taste is so smooth and delicious. There is something about making my matcha at home versus going to a coffee shop that might not have high grade matcha.
One of the first matcha i’ve bought from ippodo and i am not disappointed, great for beginners and even experienced matcha drinkers.
I drink matcha almost every day. This matcha gives me that clean energetic feeling with no crash. I’ve also lost weight by drinking matcha with non dairy milk (sometimes a bit of grass fed cream). I’m full until late afternoon and feel healthier.
