For the most discerning of matcha connoisseurs, we recommend Ummon-no-mukashi. Rich in umami, it is the highest quality tea amongst the Ippodo matchas. We recommended this matcha to experience its characteristic full-bodied, yet mellow, sweetness.
Ground from shade-cultivated tea leaves, matcha is rich in theanine-an amino acid responsible for matcha's full-bodied mellow sweetness. In Japan, there is a special name for this taste: umami. Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.
Characterized by its rich aroma, full-bodied mellow sweetness, and vivid green color, matcha is a favorite among tea lovers in Japan. Invigorating and full of nutrients, matcha is the perfect drink to rejuvenate your mind and body. It tastes best when served with sweets.
great quality, nice packaging, amazing matcha!!
Compared to Horai-no-mukashi, slightly more umami smell and taste. Wonderful as a koicha, can really tell the difference in grade.
Love the flavor of this product, it's rich and creamy but very expensive!! 100$ CAD for one 40 G tin works out to be roughly 2.50$ a tsp.
I haven’t had a chance to try my matcha tea. The best for me is knowing the tea orders a fulfilled in N America. My grand daughter always brought me your tea from the New York store.
Thank you for such special products. Carol
An excellent matcha. Great aroma and color. Very rich umami. Smooth, creamy and subtly sweet.
It’s pricey, but worth it. It has a beautiful rich flavor - I’m glad I bought the bigger size!
The matcha is so rich and creamy. However I was expecting a bigger amount of it!
This matcha is delicious! I will definitely buy it again when my current one runs out.
