From Ippodo

Ippodo is offering a special, limited seasonal offer, premium matcha called Tsukikage that is a perfect way to welcome in the autumn, available only in autumn until November.

It has a rich, multilayered flavor. It tantalizes your mouth with a hint of sharpness overlaid with a billowing sweetness. Also, the fresh fragrance that fills the air when this matcha is whisked and that remains on your tongue after drinking leaves you feeling happy and relaxed.

Tsukikage has an extremely refined, rich flavor that is distinctive from the matcha we normally sell throughout the rest of the year. With its splendid balance of sharpness, sweetness, and umami, you’ll find yourself asking for another cup. Tsukikage is the perfect thing to enjoy on a beautiful autumn day with some Japanese sweets.

Brown and decorated with a tea blossom, the autumn-themed package reminds you of the beauty of the season. Suited for use both in the tea ceremony and home use, Tsukikage is an ideal seasonal gift for matcha lovers.

This matcha, like other premium matchas I have tried, has tiny clumps that will need to be whisked up.

- Limited seasonal offer, a perfect way to welcome in the autumn.
- Tsukikage means “moonlight” in Japanese.

Very enjoyable and deeply impressed! It is a very nice bittersweet aftertaste and overall a delicious matcha. However, I would not recommend this for a daily matcha.

The powder has a wonderful strong aroma and the taste lingers for a long time, the smell of the matcha will fill the room for awhile, it smells so nice.

The color is brilliant deep dark green. I opened the matcha bag on a sunny day, the color in the bag really stood out. The powder is fine yet more dense, perhaps it is more moist.

Recommend it to those who do like little bittersweet and strong after taste. And those who enjoy a caffeine kick from their matcha.

This seasonal matcha isn’t as great as the Nodoka Spring seasonal match.

This is my 2nd pack of tsukikage, and I use a higher temperature this time. The powder is quite dense so must use a matcha sieve or strainer to remove any tiny clumps. Good for both koicha and usucha. Colour is a nice green and smooth texture, taste is quite sharp with some sweetness, and a long after taste.

The color of the dried Matcha powder is a vivid dark green.
This Matcha is suitable for Usucha and Koicha.
Prepared as Usucha it foamed up really nicely with a very bright green foam.
Sipping this Matcha resulted in an overwhelming sharpness in the beginning that turned in a sweet and aromatic body and ended with a light umami aftertaste. Maybe I should mention that I’m very sensitive to sharpness. The texture was very smooth.
Prepared as Koicha this Matcha wasn´t my liking at all, too much sharpness.
