  • “I’m fairly new to matcha having tried Red Leaf Tea mid grade and Do Matcha’s 1st harvest and this beats them both handily. I’m extremely impressed. Sweet, smooth with very fresh umami taste.” Read full tasting note

From Ippodo

Ikuyo is a medium-bodied matcha with a refreshing bitterness that is slightly more noticeable than its sweetness and umami.

TASTE NOTES
Ikuyo is a balanced matcha with astringency, umami, and sweetness in proportion. Its medium-light body is joined by a gentle, but bright aroma, like sun-dried straw. As usucha, it is a good option for everyday teatime, served straight and with cookies, cakes, or other sweets. One of our top recommendations for a matcha latte, Ikuyo has slight astringency that pairs well with the milk, and its bright green color makes for a photogenic beverage.
