This is my absolute favorite matcha. It’s smooth, creamy, sweet tea without bitterness. I love the rich unami flavour, and it has a little flower aftertaste.
Flavors: Flowers, Grass, Green, Sweet, Umami
Note: Horai and Sayaka are the same matcha in different sizes, being named by Omote-Senke and Ura-Senke tea masters, respectively
Our recommendation for people new to our matcha, Horai is a more light-hearted, smooth tea in the rich category. Its sweetness and umami are accompanied by a hint of bitterness.
We recommend Horai for your first taste of Ippodo matcha, as it is a smooth blend with umami and just a hint of astringency. Try this matcha as koicha to experience the full depth and nuances of its character. As usucha, Horai is an accessible tea to serve to beginners and connoisseurs alike at teatime. For matcha lattes, we usually recommend a medium-to-light category matcha with more astringency, but some will choose Horai, for its bright color, umami, and soft astringency.
