Uji-shimizu is our instant in-house blend of matcha and sugar. Try it hot or cold over ice, for a sweeter drink.
An original Ippodo creation, Uji-Shimizu is a matcha-based beverage developed in 1935. It combines matcha powder and sugar to provide an easy to prepare, easy to drink tea for those who prefer their matcha a bit sweeter.
Simply put about 1.5 tbsp. of Uji-Shimizu in a cup or mug. Add water hot or cold and mix with a spoon. It's as simple as that! It tastes great any season, anytime.
My sister and I purchased Uji-Shimizu back in 2019 from Ippodo tea when we were visiting Kyoto and fell in love with the sweet and refreshing taste on the hot days. Unfortunitly I only bought 2 packs to bring home to Canada so I ran out fairly quickly. I’ve been hesitiant to purchase it online since it is much more expensive rather than purchasing in person, however it’s much cheaper and better tasting than getting something similar from David’s Tea, plus there’s only two simple ingredients! It’s great mixed with water or with oat milk.
I tried this matcha when I visited tokyo several years ago and have been waiting for it to finally be available in the US due to shipping cost. This is the best matcha I've had and it's already blended with sugar that's not too sweet and not too bitter. Perfect for blending with ice, or just trying in hot water.
Really happy I found this mix of matcha and sugar, its a perfect ratio too.
I love this product and use it to make cafe-style matcha lattes. It's sweet but not overwhelmingly so--if I were ordering this at a boba shop, I'd expect this to be at 50-75% sweet (depending on the shop). Sometimes I'll mix extra matcha in it (for more caffeine) but this product stands well on its own. I started off with the travel packets but loved it so much that I upgraded to the bag. Highly recommend, especially for matcha newbies who might not be used to the taste of unsweetened matcha yet.
I first bought this tea while in Japan and loved it. I was happy to see that I was able to order online when I ran out. Thank you so much!
