Taste Notes

Available only in the autumn, Tsukikage is one of Ippodo’s popular seasonal-release matchas.

The moon is at its most beautiful in autumn, and poets think of autumn when they encounter a moonlit scene. Tsukikage — only sold this season — is named after the light of the moon.

When you sip Tsukikage, the matcha's initial sharpness is soon joined by layers of sweetness and umami, and a clear, fresh fragrance fills the air. Finally, a faint astringency lingers in the aftertaste, leaving your mouth refreshed. That delightful progression can be experienced again with a second bowl of tea, and even a third bowl. Brisk autumn afternoons call for matcha paired with sweets, cookies, and desserts, and Tsukikage is the perfect matcha for the situation.

The package design is also perfect for this season. Flowers of the tea plant—which bloom in autumn—are drawn on a subtle brown backdrop, giving this unique design a sophisticated air. This makes it an ideal matcha for both drinking at home and giving as a small gift.

Matcha

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.

Wonderful seasonal matcha

Love the slightly earthier autumn matcha compared to may daily Sayaka no mukashi!

Smooth, light flavor

Its a light, but smooth flavor for me. Great for winding down at the end of the day. It's good and I'm glad I got to try it for the first time. Would I get it again? For sure.
