New Matcha Starter Kit

October 1, 2023
New Hajime-no-Ippodo Matcha Starter Kit

Including both matcha and required utensils, the Hajime-no-Ippodo Matcha Starter Kit provides everything needed to prepare matcha right away in your own kitchen, except for the water.

October 1, 2023 will mark roughly two decades since the Hajime-no-Ippodo Matcha Starter Kit first went on sale. We’ve kept the original idea behind it the same, but revamped how it looks and the items inside.

Enjoy fresh matcha every time!
