Wakaki-shiro has a refreshing, balanced taste, with just the right amount of astringency. It's best prepared as the thinner usucha, and a good choice for people who enjoy matcha on a daily basis. It also works well for baked goods or cooking with an especially beautiful matcha color. If you would like to prepare your matcha as the thicker koicha, we recommend Kan-no-shiro and higher grades.
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.

I'm sure this matcha would also be great for drinking with just water, but it is fantastic mixed with milk. You can tell just by the color that this is a good quality matcha, miles better than what you can get at the grocery (or at least at grocery stores near me!). Great vibrant green color, not too strong of a flavor. Very good!
I am so grateful that Ippodo matcha is now available in the US. It has been my daily drink for many years and I loved going to the Kyoto store to taste and purchase. Then I bought online, but had to pay for shipping from Japan. Thank you for your fast service.
