What’s your regular brand?

Horai-no-mukashi 20g Can

What do you like about it?

Its mild sweetness and refreshing sharpness leave me feeling that I can stay clearheaded all day long. It's also easy to drink, even for newcomers to matcha, making it a matcha the whole family can enjoy.

How do you enjoy it?

Our family has a Western breakfast with toast or pastries instead of rice each morning, sometimes with coffee, sometimes with matcha. We whisk up a bowl of matcha right away on busy mornings. We sometimes prepare it with milk so the kids can enjoy matcha latte.
